Hello lovely creative friends! Today I'd like to share with you my new Mixed media canvas. This time you will find a story about a multi-layer canvas with my favorite Impasto paints, Fantasy Pastes and Mechanicals from Finnabair.
I used Impasto Paint for the base, it is a dense material that is so interesting to work with and create colorful backgrounds. I take a few shades and mix them. But first, to make the background more textured, I apply a bit of Paper Texture Paste. When the first layer is completely dry, I just use my fingers to highlight the texture using a contrasting Impasto Paint color. It's simple and so nice for an artist!
I cover all the details of decorative elements with Fantasy Paste blue and patina. I like the small texture that comes with these pastes, because they have small grains and it looks so alive! I count light and dark shades of the same color for variety and contrast. When the elements are ready I create a composition.
To add more color, I use a bright orange color of Wax and apply it here and there. It gives radiance and looks just incredible. And to add an effect of contrast I took Art Ingredients - melange vintage art pebbles and a few metal elements. A little more Art Stones and glitter and all my love and work is ready!
I invite you to watch my video tutorial to see the whole process of creating my project. Enjoy!
