Hello, design team member Amberly here to talk about an art near and dear to my heart, mixed media. For this project I used the Tim Holtz clock, this clock has a glass piece in front that cannot be removed. The Prima Finnabair clock does not have a glass piece in front. Having the glass piece that cannot be removed, I taped off the glass first.
Mixed media art is using a variety of products in layers. For example, this project uses the following:
-Tim Holtz clock
-White gesso, base layer that allows for paints and pastes to stay on object painting
-Texture paste, brings another level of texture to project. Creating a “stone” like appearance
-Acrylic paints, variety of colors and can mixed to create special colors
-Color Bloom sprays, multiple colors and help create drips and running of color on project
-Paper flowers, can also use metal or resin flowers that can painted any color
-Gold leafing, adds sparkle and shine and another texture layer
The hardest part to mixed media projects (in my opinion) is the drying time between layers.
My sister and I have taken a few mixed media classes with industry experts to learn more about mixed media art and gain knowledge of the products available.
Feel free to ask questions, I am happy to help fellow crafters
