Today I'd like to show you a tiny mixed media tile full of interesting textures and eye catching colors.
I worked on an MDF 4x4" square and started with covering it with a thin layer of Clear Gesso.
Then I glued a few pieces of papers and lace with 3D Gloss Gel and added one more coat of Clear Gesso. I dried it with a heating tool and applied 3D Gloss Gel with a palette knife through one of my favourite Finnabair's stencil.
Then, the best part - colors! I used sprays made with Primary Elements powders in different shades of green, blue and gold.
Then I also added a little bit of navy blue Silk paint diluted with water.
After gluing two rusty metal pieces, I also painted all 3 dimensional textures withmetallic paste to create an aged look.
But my work still needed some contrast so I cleaned the bubbles with a wet wipe and painted the edges of my tile with Black Gesso using a sponge. In fact, it's a very easy technique but it needs some patience or a very good heating tool. :)
I hope you like it and maybe you'll create your own tiles. You can use them to decorate furniture or add some character to your room.
I think it can also be a very good idea for a Christmas present.
Have a nice weekend filled with creative experiments!
