I recently attended a workshop given by Susan Purney Mark on soy wax resist. It was one of the best workshops I have ever attended. It was the first time I had worked with soy wax and I can assure you it won't be the last!!! I had prepared a couple of stencils using photos (taken during my recent trip to France, therefore no copyright issues) of Beauport Abbey in Brittany. I affixed one of the stencils to a screen printing frame and painted soy wax into the opening on the stencil. The image was somewhat degraded because I couldn't get the freezer paper stencil to properly stick to the screen, but I rather like the distressed images that resulted. What a lucky accident!!! I had also prepared a couple of stamps using a sponge purchased at a DIY store. These also worked very well and will be put to good use again.
Susan has a wonderful blog http://www.susanpm.blogspot.com/ filled with tons of information, that you can follow. She has also authored a couple of books and is currently working on a video. You might want to sign up to follow her blog....it's well worth the visit. You might even want to sign up for her next cruise!!!
The workshop took place in a studio in Duncan, about a one-hour drive from Victoria. The studio belongs to Gloria Daly and you might want to check out her website as well http://www.studiogart.com/. Oh gosh, so many fun happenings!!
Hope you're having fun too!!
