Here is some of the wonderful work of my students from the most recent eye token class held at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria VA. My next class there will be in July and is art paper dolls.
This month’s paper doll swap theme is Mermaids. This maid has a paperwhimsy.com face. The fish tale and other images are from Sea Life, Dover books.
Mixed Media Eye Token Workshop with theresa mARTin
Saturday, May 26, 2018
10:00 am – 2:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break
$70.00 – All Supplies Provided! In the 18th and 19th century, Lover’s Eye Tokens were popular with the wealthy. A miniaturist painted just the eyes of a lover, preserving anonymity… thus the recipient alone knew the identity of the person depicted. The tokens were often elaborately decorated and worn as bracelets, brooches or pendants. Create your own version using a love token form, beads, pearls, rhinestones, and an eye portrait. Class fee, $45.00 + supply/kit fee of $25.00, which includes all necessary supplies; students will have a choice of materials and colors. Sizes of the eye tokens range between 2 in. x 21⁄8 in. to 3 in. x 2 in.Note: Although supplies are provided, feel free to bring in assorted beads, charms and embellishments from your stash to supplement or to add an even more personal touch.
