In this video, I’m experimenting using a round about direct/dirty pour method on a slightly flattened stone.
For this video, I’m going to work with a sample Terra Skin card and texturize the heck out of it.
Acrylic Pouring Experiment #4 – Using Metallic Paint, Miniature Art, Pour into Jewelry and Skins
I think this is the most creative of all the pour techniques, pouring colours into one container and then flipping it over onto a canvas to meld and merge together.
Day 2 of an 8 day experiment on Art Pours using DecoArt’s new acrylic pouring medium. In this video, I’m experimenting using the puddle pour method.
Living on Hamilton Mountain, I have access to an abundance of escarpment stone, which can turn into some pretty beautiful pieces of art.
In this video, I’ll create a seascape painting in acrylics on escarpment stone. This seascape painting for beginners can be done on regular canvas or any substrate that can accept acrylics.
In part 2 of this project, I’m experimenting with collaging tissue paper to a stone and then painting a freestyle daisy on it.
This project was inspired by my friends Allison and Susan, creating this little mixed media pieces in my journal.
The inspiration for the background is based on tissue paper received from my friend Allison – thanks sweetie!
You know it’s time to stop when it takes 3 attempts to do a video for a project that should only have taken 10 minutes.
A mixed media project for any skill level, using what you have around the house to memorialize an inspiration.
If you like to create art to sell, this little project is perfect. You can make this in batches and easily paint 50 in a day. I do admit though, that it is a bit tiring, so I’ll stick to showing you one in this tutorial.
Kooky Bird Rock Painting
All you need is some paint, some little canvases or thick cut watercolour paper, dictionary paper and a random stamp.
A simple way of telling a little story using dictionary paper.
During the filming of a lesson, I was visited by a massive bumble bee. So I decided to make a quick piece of mixed media art using the bee as my inspiration.
Blind Contour Drawing of Foot Turns Into a Creepy Whale
Freedom to say “who cares” what it looks like, it’s about the finely tuned relationship between your eyes and your hands… which is the big old brain.
Going into the season, I’m exploring small projects that can be done anywhere such as inside on a rainy day or sitting at your kitchen counter.
If you’ve never created a piece of art in the outdoors, on a hike or just sitting in a park, you don’t know what you’re missing.
On the Fence, Button’d Down Crazy Bird
Here is the sister project to the High-Key mixed media art I created and in this lesson, going on the opposite side of the value scale, working with different finishes and textures containing black.
The process of experimenting with mixed media is the fun part… “what happens when” is a question I’m always asking…. do you find it’s the same for you?
