The diary of an art journal creative artist Jennifer Joanou

ArtFest Day 2

Thursday, May 05, 2011

As promised, here is what I did at ArtFest on day 2. 

I took Dan Essig's workshop called "Book of Mica".  We worked with several different kinds of mica.  Dan prepared a fantastic kit for us and he was full of great information.  We not only learned all about mica and how to work with it, but also how to do Coptic binding.  It was a great class.  This is what I made:

I was able to buy another kit from Dan and am planning on making another one of these beautiful books.  It was really fun!

Tomorrow will be Day 3... Encaustic!
