In this workshop Carne will be combining some painting techniques with unusual materials - a little ink, tea and alcohol. You will learn some playful techniques with optical effects like refracting pieces of glass, some automatic drawing and some floral detail.


To finish, Carne will show you how to use gold leafing techniques using dip pen, brush and throwing and blowing the liquid.
