Resin with Gold/Silver Leaf

Whoopee!  This is the workshop you’ve asked for, so here it comes.  I saw some beautiful images several years ago created with a resin pour over photographic images, and was intrigued.  In the spring of 2017, I was with Al DaValle in New Orleans visiting A Gallery, and found the fascinating imagery of Louvierre+Vanessa, working not only with resin pour on photographs but imbedded in silver and gold leafing.  Much to our delight we had the opportunity to spend an evening with
Jeff and Vanessa and they were willing to share their process.  Al and I have been experimenting and have had success, and we’re ready to share this with a few hearty souls.  This is a time consuming and complicated process, but worth the effort.  I shared this process with Christy Schuler-Gutzeit, one of my Brooks cohorts, and she has been very successful selling her pieces. 

 Inspiration:  Select, Resonata and We’re Wolves to see images with resin and gold/silver leaf.  Al and I have not had time to produce a series and post on websites.
