All Day Paint Making Seminar with Sinopia Owner Alex Warren Scheduled for late 2018
Join owner of Sinopia at the Sinopia warehouse in San Francisco, for an in depth seminar covering pigments, binders and making chalk grounds/gesso. This seminar will give you an extensive overview of all pigment types, how to classify the pigments and how to select suitable pigments for different applications. The class will also cover all the binders for such media as oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, egg-tempera, casein/milk paint, etc. Not only will all the binders be explained and demonstrated, participants will learn how to select the optimum binder for different applications and you will be able to try all of binders yourself on a panel prepared with a traditional chalk ground.
