Plaster Studio Workshop

Two weeks ago Stephanie Lee came to spend the weekend with me, to get away from work, relax and take a breather. How do you suppose we spent our R & R time then? I'll tell you. We started talking about plaster and how much we love it. Next thing we knew we found ourselves asking ourselves why we didn't teach an online plaster class to coincide with the May release of our book. We got ourselves all excited. You know how it is when you love something and you want to share. Gosh we've had a lot of fun cooking this up together. And now we're ready to share it. And dang, are we excited!!  

Stephanie and I will both be demonstrating all our tricks in videos and PDF's and giving you studio tours and much more. But rather than me trying to describe it to you here, follow this link to all the information we've put together and then mark your calendars. This is going to be good. We really hope you'll join us. xo

Good Morning Judy, I just tried to order your book but when you click on the book icon it only takes you to paypal, no invoice with seller, item or amount. How can I go about ordering this from you? Thanks, Laura

Hi judy -
I bought your book and I'm excited to get started! I do have a question though - I have read that acrylic paint isn't compatible with wax. I see that you use that combination in the book. Will this create a problem with the pieces as time goes by?
Thanks :)

Anonymous, you are correct in saying that wax over acrylic is generally not archival. However, with a thin layer of hobby acrylic over a small piece with a thin layer of wax over it, you are going to be safe for decades if not forever. What causes the layers to delaminate is the weight of several layers of wax over an impermeable layer of acrylic paint over a large surface. The weight of that much wax then becomes a risk for delamination.

Thanks for clarifying that, Judy. I'll get to work :)
