11/21/2016

Episode 123: WTF Is Raffia?

11/11/2016
More
This was recorded a couple weeks prior to our elections but Katie was being a secret psychic and gave us all a nice pep talk when The Gals realized this episode would be going up this week. It’s a short talk, but I think we need all need it this week. WTF is raffia?!?!? We have the answers here… Loni and Katie discuss the what, where, and how of this versatile fiber and then give you some cool ideas on how to use it and incorporate it into your mixed media projects.

OK, not really, but The Gals are talking about triptychs this week and that is kind of like seeing triple. While you learn what a triptych is and a bit on the history of this technique, Katie and Loni will also explain why they are so much more than the cheesy lobby art you so often see, as well as give you some fun ideas on ways you can use this yourself.

10/26/2016
More
This episode almost didn’t happen! The file went missing… for days! Thankfully Katie decided to have on last look for it before giving up and found it in the show archives from 2014.

10/3/2016
More
The Gals have had a few people ask them when “archival quality” means lately so they decide to try and tackle this many faceted subject from a mixed media art standpoint.

This week ran a bit long… The Gals started talking about different types of fabric and before they knew it they had been recording for over an hour! Two Artsy Gals has done an episode about sew and an episode about using fabric in your mixed media arts so we decided it was high time we do one about fabric. Yep, just fabric.

8/29/2016
More
The gals continue with their unintentional 70s inspired theme with their discussion on Macramé. Yes… macramé. It has a bit of a bad rap and Katie and Loni set out to convince you it isn’t some bad decorating nightmare from decades gone by, but really an ancient art form that can be beautiful and used in many different ways.

7/4/2016

It is the 4th of July! This episode is late… But hey, it is a holiday weekend so you can’t expect much. This week The Gals overwhelm themselves with talk of beading.
