This is one of my favorite mixed media pieces. It currently hangs on the wall in my studio so I can see it every day. Collage plays a big part of the project, but I tried out some natural materials to use for mark making, too.
I am always experimenting in the studio, trying to push my art supplies to new limits. In this video, I wanted to see if I could use Distress Oxide sprays with my cold wax medium. Did it work? Watch and see!
You can use every day household items, like cardboard from a shipping box, to create wonderful mixed media collage art. For this one, I used lots of old papers, some cheesecloth, and a cardboard box - it’s one of my favorites!
This is the second part of a series of videos I did, showing how to source book parts, select collage materials, and then build a series of three collages on the old book covers.
You can find Part 1 on my YouTube channel.
