Multi-media artist and painter Lisa Binder will teach participants how to create and use amazing altered and collage papers for mixed media artwork and mini-paintings, personal gifts, and cards. Learn the alcohol process for creating background dimension as well as how to attach your mini artworks to weathered board, wooden boxes, books, etc. Discover new uses for water-based Minwax as a finishing or layering tool.
