Where Art Matters

I am a member of the Southern California Collage Society, and recently prepared a list of Resources for collage artists to be added to SCCS’s web page. You can find my list below, with links. If you have favorite resources you would like to share, please let me know. I’d also like to hear if any of the methods in the hands-on videos work well or don’t work so well for you. By the way, I use a glue stick for magazine pages, but have found the paper comes loose sometimes, so I’ve been sealing over the top with Utrecht matte gel. A friend said I should use Yes glue, but I read online that it yellows, so am not sure if it’s a good choice.

Jane Davies tutorials (some are specifically on collage).
