Today I am sharing my mixed media Fantasy feather with you. I wanted to show how you can use different paint mediums on one project. So grab yourself a cuppa and lets take a look at how I put my project together.
I started by sketching out a feather onto a piece of gesso coated canvas board using a regular pencil.
I then applied some masking solution to the feather and allowed this to dry.
The next step was to create the background using Brusho, I applied some Ultra Marine, Emerald Green and Purple to a wet surface and then spritzed with lots of water. I tilted the board to help move the colour around and then put it to one side to dry.
I removed the masking fluid and set about painting the feather with Aztec Lustre paints, I applied several coats for a solid covering and allowed it to dry naturally. Next i set about adding detail to the feather with a black pen, adding doodles as I went.
I used a silver paint pen to add some wispy hair like detail between the feather segments,then flicked some white paint onto the background. I placed a few sequins and wrote a quote onto card and applied each word individually to fill around the feather.
I hope you've enjoyed today's post, Please leave me a post and tell me what you think of my project and the use of multiple paint mediums.
