You’ve seen ‘that look’ on artworks in galleries and elsewhere. That thick, glassy, laminated finish that makes the artwork ‘pop out’ almost as if it’s illuminated from behind. Though somewhat simple to prepare and use, there are many factors involved into creating a suitable finish for your photographs, painting, collage and other artworks. There is NOT a lot of information out there and you will save yourself a lot of trial and error in this informative, practical workshop. You will be working with the artist on a production art piece and one of your own pieces. These techniques are ideally suited for photographers and all visual artists. This workshop consists of one (approx.) six hour session and then a two hour followup .The workshop takes place at the Lens Work / Lumigloss work studio in 'little india' ,Toronto.
