The Process - Start to Finish
Following up on the last post....sharing my process of creating textures mixed media pieces from start to finish.
Step One: Layering on gesso, texturing pastes/mediums, etc....this is where I might embed beads, charms, wire mesh or gears also.
Adding layers of paint I tend to layer on bold colors first and then soften/lighten as I go. Mixed media is a layering process.
Adding more layers of color with acrylic paints.
Continuing to add layers....I added some translucent alcohol inks and a paper mache heart that I made with a candy mold.
Madding final touches. In this piece I added some black spattering for some added contrast.
