Alchemy of Light: Intro to Pigment

@ Pioneer Works with Roger Carmona of Kremer Pigments

Saturday August 2nd – 1 – 5 pm
class fee ($40) + material fee ($30) = $70

How does light work in pigments to make color tactile or possibly convey taste? This class will introduce the various personalities of pigments and explain how they stack and suspend in binders. This workshop will serve as an introduction to the layering system of paint and how one can mimic surface and control light.

You will grind and mull pigment to make your own unique oil paint sets! The various oils, additives and fillers such as mica, quartz, and marble dust to name a few, make the personalities of pigments scream out. Although we will make oil paint, you will leave with an understanding of how to make any kind of paint with just one bag of pigment. A brief history of pigments and their use in artists’ oils will lay out the relationship of paint-making with cooking techniques, using some recipes of the old masters and more recent experimental applications.

RECIPE (video): Inner-Glow Pearl Gold

This recipe yields a semi-opaque whitish gold color. Has the appearance of a hard-surface paint, marble-like but flexible fast-drying covering paint. With line work you will get a sharp opaque paint and if diluted you can get radiant white-gold glazes. The paint is very thick but can easily be diluted with more turpentine.
