Congratulations on your purchase of Citra Solv Art. In the world of magic, there is something exhilarating about an object disappearing and reappearing as another totally different object. There is something fascinating and energizing about being able to do that as an artist. It is my hope you find this intuitive process as unique and, at times, introspective as I have.
Citra Solv art is a process that yields unique, original art every time. To set you up for success, we’ll begin the course with finding the right print media to use, methods to activate the ink, and other process “dos and dont’s” that I’ve figured out along the way. We’ll then focus on manipulating the papers further with different tools in additive and subtractive manners to make this art uniquely yours and showcase your point of view. That journey will show you some successful media choices that play nicely with this unusual substrate. Sealing, preserving, and framing options and recommendations round out the class. You will want to showcase this one-of-a-kind art piece.
Each segment is designed to be concise and presented clearly so it can be effectively mastered. We have provided a link so you can conveniently purchase this course's stencils from StencilGirlProducts.
Join us here for Citra conversation, tips, evolving techniques, and artful magic.
Nancy Curry, a former language arts teacher, switched gears in the 1990s and dove headlong into the world of paper arts/mixed media and never looked back. She has been a working artist, traveling instructor, designer and author for over twenty years. Her print media work for industry magazines and books, her own F&W book, Texture Effects for Rubber Stamping, and large body of work clearly show the melding of whimsy, elegance and curiosity, and her workshops suggest a playful and spontaneous nature as well. Her easily recognizable style has evolved and matured, yet is timeless in its use of varied applications of media. The results are pieces containing both visual and tactile textures, favorite motifs, and often meaningful verbiage that combine for rich and unique compositions. Nancy lives and creates in a St. Louis suburb with her husband and two standard poodles, affectionately called sous artistes.
