Personal Message From Kim

Magnolia Box, faux marquetry, 9" x 13"x 4 7/8", acrylics on wood
©2009 Kim Bennett

I have several painting on the go. Things have been going great in the studio. I started on a cityscape and made the final touches to the faux marqutery box for the class in June. It is nice to work the right side of the brain again.

The faux wood box is a magnolia design that I have put together for the KVDA members in Charleston, West Virginia.

Along with the box, we will be reproducing some early graining techniques with 20th century materials. We will be using non-toxic Traditions Acrylics for our faux finishes.

There will be no need for any specialty brushes for this class. We will be using a variety of bristle brushes that are readily available at hardware and art supply stores. We will create an album of graining effects that can be taken home. These will be made with materials that you can find on hand or lying around the house.

Prepare to get messy!
