Folk Art Workshop in Ipoh

At last we had a folk art workshop session in Ipoh last Sunday. Even though time was running short but I presumed everyone had enjoyed the session and learned something from it. I felt very exhausted today but satisfied that the program was a success. A big thank you to all who had participated and most of all to those who had helped to organised it. Hopefully there would be more to come in the future. "IPOH ROCKS !!!".

Roses on Glass

This is a glass item that I painted with roses using the Enamel Paint. Its is difficult to paint using the brushstroke method on a smooth surface like this. So you need to layered it a couple of times before you can see the flowers.

Book Box

This a book box that I made for a customer as a wedding gift. The motif is a mixture of flowers of lilies and roses and the background has been scumbled with mixtures of colours of Diox purple, Brilliant magenta and Smoked Pearl on top of the Lilac base. The side has been grained to make it look like the book pages.

Teapot Notice Board

This is a notice board that you can placed in the kitchen because it is shaped like a teapot. It has been painted with blackboard paint/black gesso. I have painted some motifs of cupcakes and roses to make it look sweeter but on its own, it does look nice to hang it in the kitchen.

Here is a box that I have painted following Priscilla Hauser's method from the book. I have created a marbling effect in the background for the top and used jo Sonja colours for the roses. However opted to use angle brush rather than a flat brush.

Folksie Perpetual Calendar

I've worked on this piece for one week in between teaching. Actually I have basecoated this perpetual calender wood item three months ago and decided not to continue the project because painting the little pieces for the numbers on the calendar was a bit too much. Anyway, I am glad that I finished it in the end. It looks very country when you put them together with the Picket Fence that I did earlier. The toughest part is actually doing the wood graining effect on the little pieces. The design is mainly painted using shading, highlighting and stippling techniques. The roses are just an add-on to make it look sweeter.
