WONDERSAUCE™ DIGITAL IMAGE TRANSFER WORKSHOP, May 18&19, 2018. Private studio of Diane Rolnick, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
In this workshop you will learn to apply YOUR digital images to creative substrates which include aluminum , a variety of acrylic sheets and the new optimized DASS™ YUPO , non paper sheet material.
These new techniques were invented by noted artist and author, BONNY LHOTKA, who teaches in fine art centers including the EASTMAN HOUSE, ANDERSON RANCH, ADOBE MAX and in her own LHOTKA studio. Lhotka has written 3 textbooks and has a VIEMO video channel to view them in action.
I have been recognized by Lhotka as a DASSART™ instructor and I assisted her in many Lhotka studio workshops and onsite Adobe events as well as my teaching in South Florida. I use these systems in my own artwork and have pioneered the use of the DASS™ Wondersauce™, nontoxic releasing solutions.
Wondersauce™ has no vapor, is water based and you can add image layers. Collage your elements and apply over and under compatable mixed media for an entirely new look and approach to your photographic designs.
These techniques are to be used in your own studio environment —allowing you total creative freedom and originality verses subcontracting to a printing service. Printed on the proprietary DASS™ Premium emulsion film with a pigment fine art digital printer, your images are prepped in Photoshop or other digital editing softwear. Pigment printers are made by Epson, Canon and HP and come in a variety of sizes and prices. With a collage technique you can use individual elements in pieces to create much large final artwork.
We use a variety of Wondersauce™ mixtures that can have additional additives. You will see how to vary the opacity of the releasing Wondersauce™ to accentuate depth of field within your artwork. Also these sauces applied to black substrates will produce a variety of “artifacts” , one of a kind variances.
By experiencing a variety of substrates you will begin visualizing which you like more for your specific work. Those who like matted and framed work will ADORE the DASS™ optimized YUPO which has been custom fabricated for the DASS™ processes by the YUPO company and Lhotka. Working together, they zeroed in to create a very special surface that is completely versatile. A variety of mixed media materials are compatable.
This workshop is limed to 5 artists . It will be located in the private Santa Fe studio of Diane Rolnick, artist/professional photographer. It will be two days of intense FUN and I am there to share my experience and personal studio hacks. By attending a live workshop you cut the learning curve and are on a fast track with these new processes. .There are no books currently devoted exclusively to the Wondersauce™ processes. I will demonstrate collage works with DASS™ materials on larger substrates with mixed media additions.
