In this playful class, I'll show you how to do a gesso transfer on my studio table! I'll talk you through the process and chat about the papers I'm using.
I'll then take you into my bathroom and show you what I did with some funky wrapping paper from Passion for Paper * here in New Zealand and some gesso!
I also highlight how to use the technique on an uneven surface such as bricks (in my porch) and show you the results of a quote on my pantry.
This class is aimed at using wrapping paper and gesso in a fun way to bring a unique flair into spaces in your home.

WHAT IS GESSO?
Gesso is predominately used as a primer to prepare a surface for painting. It makes the surface slightly textured in order to accept acrylic paint. Without gesso, the paint would soak into the weave of the canvas. It comes in both black and white. I'll be demonstrating using white gesso.
*Please note, I'm not affliated with Passion for Paper in any way. I've used their products for years and I adore the paper which is a high quality wrapping paper.
