Technique Toolbox

Technique Toolbox
Master 25 Mixed-Media Techniques in 5 Weeks

Create a faux tintype image transfer, make art with Elmer's glue and a plastic bag, create a gesso chalkboard—these are just a few of the amazing techniques featured in this class! Technique Toolbox is your chance to brush up on these (and 22 more) mixed-media techniques with nationally known collage artist and illustrator Claudine Hellmuth as your guide.

Claudine's retro-whimsical art has appeared everywhere from The Martha Stewart Show to The New York Times to BigPictureClasses.com, where she has taught and inspired hundreds of crafters worldwide in three previous workshops. In her newest class, she has compiled 25 of her favorite collage and mixed-media techniques in a 5-week workshop that will help you build your own technique toolbox (literally) to inspire your crafting adventures for years to come.

Technique Toolbox consists of 25 instructional videos and 25 professionally designed "recipe cards" that outline each technique. You'll file these printable recipes inside an adorable handmade toolbox you'll create in class. And that's not all! Claudine has invited 20 fellow artists and crafters to create exclusive projects with her techniques, giving you plenty of ideas for creative, real-world applications—from scrapbook pages to wall décor.
