With modeling paste! All materials and a welcome cocktail included

Create stunning landscapes with texture with the help of modeling paste and palette knife.


What is modeling paste?

Modeling paste, sometimes called molding paste, is a thick substance filled with hard solids that produces a textured effect when applied to canvas or other surfaces. It is a versatile product that can be used to enhance not only acrylic paintings, but many other craft projects as well. Modeling paste can be mixed with acrylic paint while still wet to create a thick paint, or it is possible to add color over the top of dry paste too. 


What to expect

You will depict a compelling and powerful landscape painting using modeling paste to create depth and intrigue. We will also use palette knives and "exotic" art tools that you probably have never thought could be used for making fine art (you’ll be surprised). We will reveal all the tricks and hacks for starting with your first modeling paste artpiece on a 30cm x 40cm canvas. And it will be a lot of fun — because that’s how creating should be.

The inspirational work is from artist Anastacia Trusova, Pinterest. Use the examples provided as inspiration and either create your own landscape image or follow a step-by-step tutorial from your art instructor.

What you will learn about

  • Handling the palette knives of different shapes
  • Supplies and products needed for textures created with modeling paste
  • Numerous ways of using this medium during the creation process
  • Painting compelling landscapes with modeling paste


PIE Events

Treat yourself to a creative night out, where you can unwind, sip & snack and have fun with your friends, or make new ones as you paint along.

We organize these events multiple times a week. You can join us in our Studio, at various bars and restaurants around town, or even in outdoor locations.

You absolutely don’t need any previous experience to participate. We provide a relaxing atmosphere, art supplies, a drawing template and step-by-step instructions from local artists, so you can let go and focus on connecting with others over an "artsy" cocktail and a night of creativity and laughs.


What to expect

At the beginning of the session, your instructor will demonstrate the use of materials and provide a basic overview of color mixing. Using a tracing template, you'll draw the outlines of your picture (no drawing skills required!) and then paint along with the instructor's guidance to create your own version of the painting. Your instructor will be available to help individuals if they get stuck.

About halfway through the event, we'll take a break to enjoy drinks and snacks and bond over our artistic skills (or lack thereof). We'll take lots of pictures to capture the special moments. The session will end with fun team pictures (silly ones encouraged!). Your painting is yours to keep, and you can take it home in a recycled paper bag.
