Something new for you today. As a result of the fun that I have been having with mixed media in the past, I have started compiling a collection recipe ‘cards’ and I thought that it would be a great idea to pop them here for your reference too.
So, here is the first in the series.
In real life, this looks like undulating and granular tar.
- Pébéo Black Gesso.
- Pébéo White Gesso.
- Pébéo Modelling Paste.
- Pébéo Texture Paste.
- Pébéo Vitrail Blue.
- Silicone Scraper.
- Dry Brushing Brush.
- Acrylic Flat Head Brush.
- Wet Wipes.
- Brush cleaner/preserver.
This is how to do it.
- Apply a medium layer of Modelling Paste with the spatula or silicone scraper.
- Slap and pat this layer with the spatula so that you get a range of peaks on the layer. Let this dry. Wash the spatula.
- Apply patches of the Texture Paste. Let this dry. Wash the tool used to apply this.
- Coat the entire surface with a thin layer of black gesso with the flat head brush. Let this dry. Wash the brush.
- Dry brush white gesso over the black gesso. This should be built up from very light layers that just catch the peaks of the Modelling and Texture Paste. Let this dry. Wash the brush.
- Apply a little Blue Vitrail and spread it out across the whole surface. Scrape away as much as possible with the silicone scraper – putting it back into the pot if you can. Wipe the excess Vitrail from the Silicone Scraper with a wet wipe.
- Let the whole project rest and dry overnight in a dust free area.
Ok, that’s it for this one.
Hope you can make use of this information in some way for a future project.
