Mixed Media

MaybeNotso

The background of the above was created with hand dyed tissue and further embellished with foil and gel pens.

The technique is simple

Requirements are few too. You need a background* (fabric or paper) the tissue and a matte medium (the one illustrated works particularly well).

Matte Medium is needed directly on the background

010

Apply it over the tissue too.

Cover the surface and leave to dry.

Once dry the beauty of the paper is visible. Interesting things can happen with the background too

The above shows the front and back of a paper background

The above shows a background of cotton fibres. A piece of this paper is included in our packs so that you can experiment. This surface too is perfect for stitching – and I often use it for book covers.

Sometimes there is a double use as a quick ‘print’ will result in a watercolour-like finish – and you can still use the paper as above. The video below shows the imprint left – remember to lift the tissue immediately while still wet – it can be transferred to another area for use or left on polythene to dry before peeling off for use.

Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Crochet is one of my current means of expression. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
