Chris Cozen Workshop

I was SO fortunate to have been able to take classes with Chris Cozen from Golden Paint Company . . . it has been on my WISH LIST for a long time! I was in AWE of her knowledge of the Golden products and what they can do for you as well as her gift at mixed media art . . . the first piece is my only "finished" piece learning to use Golden paints . . . glazing liquid . . . collage . . . stamping . . . transfers . . . stencilling . . . it was a lot to absorb in a 6-hour class, but I LOVED it!!!!! The following three pieces were practice pieces learning to use the materials and techniques!!

Lucky lucky lucky! These are awesome. I love the first one, the purple pic. I have so many of the products but not sure how to use them to their full advantage!

Hi Nettie!
I'm sorry you couldn't read the intro part of this post . . . it looks OK to me . . . I hope you can see it if you try again . . . a big "secret" is that I used Quinacridone Magenta and Turquoise Phthalo which Chris helped me pick out . . . her books are most helpful since you're in South Africa . . . she's coming out with a new one in January 2010!!!
