Mixed Media Canvas – Mellow

Hello all,

Finally had some time to work on a Mixed Media Canvas last night.  I wanted to work on improving my blending skills.  So, after applying a texture paste through a stencil and adhering all of my elements,  I began adding and blending acrylic paint with a baby wipe to create a soft, mellow background.  It took some time to build up and add the shading and color that I was looking for but the baby wipe technique worked really well.  I think it is a nice twist to my normal steampunk approach.

White highlights were then added and I sealed the canvas with a Matte Medium.  I think I am going to use the baby wipe blending technique a lot going forward!  Love ease of use!

I hope that you have enjoyed this project and will try some blending techniques on your next project.

Happy Day!
