Mixed Media monthly challenge blog inspiration Galaxy
TiTony is here with my first mixed media tutorial made for Daily ART. The mood board of the month theme for this month was the dreams, the night, the rest. I had so many ideas and had a hard time before I finally chose the one for this project. I decided to create about the galaxy as I ever made one in my projects before.
I decorated 15 x 15 cm size canvas. First I applied a base coat of Black Gesso Paste on it. After it was dry I painted the background with acrylics. I have used a small foam brush for this step. I started with the dominant ultramarine color, then I added other colors purple, carmine, sky blue, and turquoise. I diluted white acrylic color with water and made few splashes with a toothbrush.
Then I have added embellishments. I made the embellishments myself. I have a few molds and use self-hardening clay dough that dries without baking. I needed to decorate the embellishments to match my project. First. I primed embellishments with Gesso Paste Black, and afterward, I added highlights with Patina sapphire and emerald colors. The stars are highlighted with Chameleon Patina.
It was very tempting to add more details and layers to this project, as I have enjoyed it so much and there was still so many things I could add to it. But Ihave remembered that little goes a long way. And I understood it was a right time to finish.
I hope you like my galaxy. See you soon with a new tutorial!
