Mixed Media Demo

At our last guild meeting, my kindred art spirit and dear friend Judy, showed us how she creates her beautiful mixed media art pieces using various objects to create texture in pastes and gels. After creating that texture on the canvas and letting the paste/gel dry, she then showed us how to stamp and paint over the textured areas for depth of color. A lot of the supplies she used were made by Golden but you can also achieve texture on your surface as she did with regular household paste found at your local home improvement store. You can see the full demo here.

After watching Judy’s demo, several of our members were talking excitedly about incorporating small polymer clay pieces and canework into a piece like this. Judy makes stamped, textured and glazed polymer clay buttons and faces to incorporate into her art. You can see a face at the top of her canvas. To see more of Judy’s work, visit her website.

Oh, the possibilities!

    Karen, I agree, Judy gave a great demo ! I have been inspired to create a mixed media canvas, and plan to incorporate many pieces from my ‘cane slices stash’……..

    Hi Dora. I’m inspired, too, to create a mixed media canvas now. Maybe I’ll make mine with a tea theme. Looking forward to seeing what you create!
