The color of your project is the first thing the eye sees. This class is for those who want to improve the visual presentation of their work by understanding how to find the color they are looking for. For two days Mitch will work with you on how to mix colors together artistically using dyes and pigments (stains). Students will also apply colors on top of colors, change the color of glazes, and change the color of any existing coating (toners). All of this leads to predicting and obtaining the exact color you want. Other issues that Mitch will discuss include understanding color terminology, working with primary colors and mixing then in your dyes, stains, glazes and toners. This incredible knowledge will separate you from most other woodworkers, especially those who are making the same projects you are.
