collage with Michael DeMeng

Putting It All Together (Part 1)

Instructor Bio: 
94 minutes

Michael deMeng will demystify how you start a collage. Learn his how-to for making a cohesive statement, and not a combo platter of leftover oddities.

In the class, Michael uses his slide presentation to demonstrate in great detail all his tips and techniques plus listen in to questions from the audience.

This is the first part of a two part class.
Each class is purchased separately.
This session covers: Tools, Objects and Assembly
Second session covers:Textures, Paint, Washes, and Visual Bridges.

This is a CraftCast Vintage Video, created before it was possible to incorporate High Definition video, as we do today. How far we have come in such a short time!

Watch and listen as Michael reveals to you tips and techniques you need to know to start a collage. Using close-up photographs of each step of the process, plus Michael's detailed instruction, you’ll be creating using these techniques in no time!

Class was recorded live so, just like in more recent videos, you’ll hear the live Q&A with other students.

You can re-watch all your CRAFTCAST purchases
as many times as you like.
