Hello everyone, Patricia is here to share my mixed media tutorial Life on the moon.
I am so happy to be with you and share my art and inspiration with all of you. In this month Daily ART has proposed a very cool Mood Board to me has inspired me to the world of space. I´ve wanted to make a fusion of spring and the lunar world. I hope you like it.
Mixed Media Tutorial Life on the Moon
Tip: I often use hardboard shapes as bases for my mixed media projects. Hardboard is a surface similar to MDF, around 3 mm thick. It is hard and if you cover it with a layer of gesso you can make multiple layers of decoration on it. Hardboard is an inexpensive alternative to the canvas which makes it an ideal surface to make your first steps playing with colors.
I applied Sand Texture Paste with Honeycomb Small Stencil by Daily ART and waited until the paste became dry. I colored the texture with Acrylic Paint and added some color on the surface without the texture. For this step, I have used ultramarine color, which is among my favorites.
