We are happy to have Folk Artist Iva Wilcox back at Gilding the Lily teaching her Enchantress of The Sea reliquary. Iva will lead you through the steps to create your own under water world in a small glass and wood display case. In this class, you'll construct a three-dimensional under-the-sea scape. You can use the images Iva provides or bring one of your own and really personalize it. Iva will share her techniques for adding rich textures and layers of paint to build your mermaid's palace. You will also learn how to lavishly furnish it with faux pearls, seashells, glitter and gold, coral, sea fans and a sandy floor. Can you hear the siren song beckoning?
