Stephanie Rubiano Weekend Nov. 17th & 18th

 
 
 
I love it when I open up an art magazine and a friend is featured! This is the current issue of Somerset Studio which is at the store and it features one of my most favorite teachers, the talented Stephanie Rubiano, who happens to be at teaching at Paper Crown in a few weeks. Actually this is the second time Stephanie has been featured in an art magazine since the move to Waco. Stephanie was also featured this summer in Jo Packham's first addition of Where Women Create. So you can see, I'm not the only one that thinks this lady is super talented.
 
 
Stephanie will be at Paper Crown the weekend of Nov. 17th & 18th for two amazing workshops featuring her shrink art. You will leave her class with lots of goodies, knowledge of new techniques and inspiration to create.
 
  




Plastic Perching Pixies

10-5
Stephanie Rubiano, $105 + $20 kit fee
6 hour workshop
All skill levels welcome

 
Class Description:
 
 This workshop is a reboot of my popular ‘Perching Pixies’ class where we will utilize the magic of inkjet shrink plastic rather than wood to create tiny 3D standalone artworks!  I will show you simple decorative techniques to add color and pattern to your shrink plastic pieces.  We will then add metal hats, wings and other accessories to the pixies using cold connections.  Ways to engineer the proper seating for your wonderful plastic creations will be discussed and demonstrated.   Come and enjoy a relaxing day where we will revisit an old childhood friend and give it an artful makeover!

Kit fee:  $20
Kit will include 2 sheets of shrink plastic with printed imagery, miniature nuts and bolts, socket wrench, wood blocks, small perch for a pixie, handout with directions

Class Description:
We will use original cabinet cards and cdvs (tiny cabinet cards) to create wonderful cut outs!  You can make a single one to stand alone or create a grouping to grace a shelf!  You will learn how to use a jeweler's saw and work with metal (drilling, cutting, etc.).   Techniques to color and decorate the cards will be explored as well. To further accentuate your pieces, lightweight accessories will be crafted from inkjet shrink plastic. So gather some of those monochromatic cards you have lying around and give them some personality!!
