This was a useful workshop for me because acrylic paint is the medium that I prefer to use.
I learnt about the different powders, base, matting agents that can be used to create your own specific paint. I intend to put this new knowledge into action by getting some materials from the paint area; I would like to create a thick, matte paint that I could use for my portraits. I would also like to experiment with sands to add a gritty texture.
Until I am able to get these, I’m going to use scrunched up paper and then apply paint over it to create a thickness.
