Action painting

Action painting is the term which describes the physical act of painting as an essential part of creating an artwork. Action painting includes gestural use of painting tools, splashing and dripping paint, or dancing and moving while applying paint to a work of art.

Bronze

Bronze is a metal alloy which is made of copper and tin. Most modern compositions include 88% copper and 12% tin. Bronze eventually develops a patina, or surface color, that is a deep green. Large bronze objects are made in foundries.

Silkscreen

Silkscreen is a method for making prints using a screen made of silk or some other mesh fabric. The screen is prepared with a substance which only allows the ink forced through it to print in selected areas. Each color used needs a separate screen.
