TAKE YOUR TECHNIQUES TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Learn how to create your own beautiful and unique collage papers

You will learn how to create visual depth with unique marks and patterns using translucent collage papers which you will make yourself.

This is not collage using ephemera or found papers from books or magazines. In fact, it doesn’t even look like traditional collage.

This is a way to introduce the kind of marks into your work that are impossible to create directly on canvas.

TESTIMONIAL

Gaston Comeau

This course came along at the right time in my practice. I had been searching for ways to take my underwater seascape paintings to the next level. I was especially looking for ways to create more depth and interest in the middle ground. Thanks so much for this course and the lasting inspiration.

  • “Kasia has put tremendous thought and care into this superb, easy to follow course. She’s clear as a bell in describing the techniques and in her invitation to use them however you want. My mind is abuzz with so many ways to riff off what she’s so generously provided. Enough talk - go buy it! I’m off to the studio to start experimenting…”

  • “Your course was vastly detailed, brilliantly planned, extensive (wow), incredible value for money. It was extremely well presented and sequenced. Just enough information. Not too much.”

  • “The collage course was extremely useful to me. I have been working with collage/paint layers for years BUT you still managed to teach me some new tips and tricks.”

  • “Fabulous Kasia!!! You are incredible to share all this valuable information to us !!! My work will never be the same. Get this course you will be so happy!!!”

  • “I loved the techniques you shared and have completely transformed paintings about to be thrown out by applying these papers.“

  • “Thank you for your great collage course. I can see all sorts of exciting possibilities with this. I was using wet strength tissue paper and using diluted inks but had not seen the endless experimentation possible by adding them together. Thank you for creating such a clear and well structured video which enabled easy learning.”

  • “Thank you very much; your course is great with this fun use of wet strength tissue, it fills a place in my work that was waiting for the veiled layers I can do in Photoshop but not in 3D. 

    A fab course, carefully structured and thought through, and good value, too”

  • “I have just had the chance to watch this through for the first time - and I am blown away! Thank you so much for sharing your techniques and for inspiring others to experiment and to create and for making it all so accessible - even to me, the total novice. I cannot wait to get started and who knows where this may lead - how exciting!”

  • “The title of the course, ‘Create Unique Collage Paper’, is perfectly suited. It’s exactly what I was looking to elevate my artwork to another level and Kasia, you delivered. You go above and beyond in sharing your research and development with this technique. Each piece of paper is distinctive and adds more depth and interest to my paintings. Thanks so much!”

  • “Wow!! This was an awesome tutorial, Kasia. I had to open it up and take it right away this morning. It is hard for me to say which technique I liked the best. How about all of them as they were, each one, interesting and appealing... Thank you so very much for an affordable and accessible presentation.”

  • Course Review
    “I am so impressed with Kasia’s online collage course! Kasia shares many interesting collage techniques with examples of how to use your papers to add depth and more layers to your paintings. This course is suitable for beginners and more advanced collage artists like myself. I will definitely be incorporating some of these beautiful new techniques into my own art practice. 
    A well delivered course with very clear instruction. Highly recommend. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”Susan McCreevy, Artist
  • Course Review

    “Kasia gives generous insight into her unique paper collage making techniques. Her course gifts you with an additional tool for your creative tool box. Incorporating these types of collage papers into your artwork has endless possibilities, whatever your chosen subject matter. Especially if creative play and texture are elements you want to enhance or introduce into your own work. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced creative.
    Cont’d…->
  • Throughout Kasia gives comprehensive demonstrations of how her papers are created and shows us how these are integrated into her own work. This all builds gently, giving us plenty of time to experiment with our own papers. Through Kasia’s work we then get to experience how the papers are used to create layers which leads us to think about how they can be used in our own art practice. Injecting elements of surprise and risk are just two of the many benefits. 
    Cont’d…->
  • Experimental play is at the heart of my own work, so I can’t wait to harness this new technique.“ - Melanie Cormack-Hicks, Artist

MATERIALS LIST

  • Wet-strength tissue paper available from Carnival Papers  (UK and selected countries) or directly from me here (Worldwide). It is also available on Amazon in various countries. You need a tissue paper that will not fall apart when wet - check with your art materials supplier if unsure. If you cannot get hold of wet-strength tissue the next best thing to try is ‘unbuffered’ tissue paper (used for packaging).
  • Plastic surface, e.g. thick polythene, a plastic tray or silicone mat
  • Acrylic ink (brands such as Liquitex, Golden, Daler Rowney, Sennelier are all good)
  • Acrylic medium (matte or gloss)

  • A hanger (optional)
  • Elastic bands
  • Paper towels
  • Small containers/cups for mixing ink
