EVEN BEGINNERS CAN MAKE AN AMAZING TEXTURED ART MASTERPIECE
This one is a DOOZY! You can join me in a FREE full length video workshop (click on the video below). You can easily make a beautiful work of art with a few tools and supplies. (*kids get your parents help and permission with this project). I hope you have as much fun making your own as I did 🙂
Follow along as I create a mixed media artwork from start to finish. Even a beginner can create a masterpiece!
We start by creating our own “glue gun” stencils that we will use to add pattern and texture to our AMAZING artwork. Follow along as I show you step-by-step how to make an original AMAZING mixed media artwork.
8 * 10 inch picture frame with glass from the dollar store
8 x 10 inch canvas panel (also from the dollar store)
pencil and 1 sheet of paper (any paper will do)
Glue gun and glue sticks
1 tsp vegatable oil (as a release for our stencils)
Acrylic texture paste (can also use a heavy gel medium or polyfil type wall spackle (look for the “flexible” type)
Assorted paints/acrylic inks. I used the following colors: raw umber, phthalo blue, phthalo green, cream (titan buff), paynes grey (a bluey black)
Glazing medium * not necessary but nice to have (I used golden glazing medium in matte)
Liquitex gloss medium and varnish
Spatula or spreader tool (not for food use)
Spray bottle with water
Assorted paint brushes
