    The purpose of this Potassium Workshop?

    2. Learn the unique art of Potassium

    3. Relax, enjoy the ambience, listen to music and have fun

    4. To complete a gorgeous piece of Potassium Artwork to take home


    Materials provided in the cost:

  • A piece of 300gsm watercolour paper

  • Potassium

  • Lemon Juice to strip back the Potassium in places

  • Glue

  • Gold, bronze or silver paint

  • Lace

  • Glue brushes, scissors, paint brushes, glitter, oil paint, and some texture paste

    What you provide:

  • Photocopies (black and white or colour) of images that are relevant to your design

  • Photographs if you have them

  • Old keys, shells, rocks, lace, dried flowers, lace hankies, old letters or notes, or any objects that you would like to incorporate in your painting

    A brief outline of the process is: Students choose a theme. It could be a backyard garden scene. You draw or trace an image of an old garden seat in pencil. You then use potassium and draw over the lines of the chair. The student then glues down images of garden flowers, a cat or dog or children or a bird on a post after they have been dipped in potassium. Other objects (such as feathers, keys, lace, old hankies, dried flowers, pictures of old coach lights, baskets with flowers, and children playing are also dipped in potassium and added to create the scene). You could also do a theme of where your mother or grandmother used to live or an underwater scene with pirate ship anchors and coral and shells. It is all up to your imagination!


    To Enrol: pay the $100 into my account as per the instructions above for the Mosaic for Beginner Workshop.
