Here is a 12"x24" Mixed media canvas I worked on yesterday. I first started with the girl. I used Prismacolor Watercolor pencils on a rawCanvas Corp canvas, I then blocked her out with Golden Artist Colors black gesso. I traced out her hair and combined Golden's Molding paste and Fluid acrylic paint and used a palette knife to form out her hair. I went back through with a paint brush to add definition and smooth out the paste. I added Canvas Corp's red jute cord and burlap banner tags to her hair. I thn layered Prima Marketing Flowers and7gypsies wire swirls. I created the little bird out of polymer clay. I then used Ranger Ink / Tim Holtz Adirondack color wash in Red Pepper over the top of her hair piece, hair and highlighted her skin. To add a finishing glow to her I used PanPastel Colors to highlight the canvas and her face.
I love the weight of Canvas Corp.'s canvases. They are all raw and have a nice give to them. They take art mediums really well and can be used for anything from decoupage, scrapbooking, to fine arts.
I also used one of the new felt flowers I designed for Prima this CHA. It blends so well with the rest of the embellishments.
She took me quite a bit of time but she was worth every minute of it. I have her listed on Etsy currently.
I created this little bird out of Polymer Clay and painted him with Golden Fluid acrylics. When I do clay pieces I use the buff colored clay. I find that it paints easier than a white or colored clay.
On the next canvas I will try and tape some of the techniques I use to create it. I hope you all have had a great February and have an even better March.
