More Information on this Workshop

Figurative woods look great with clear coatings, but what will make those figurative woods “pop” with color? In this class students will work with coloring agents that will add depth and metamerism (chatoyance) to figurative woods. Using natural and synthetic dyes, oils and chemicals used on figurative woods, like bird’s eye maple, and tiger maple, will “pop” those figures with color. Another key component is using the correct coatings to magnify the depth of that figure. For semi-diffuse and ring porous woods there are a variety of color combinations and materials to decorate those pores, making attractive and different visual presentations. Color-on-color techniques are easy and fun ways to create colors that can’t be obtained any other way.
