Jacquard Paints Lumiere and Neopaque
I just started another mixed media canvas this afternoon and every time I work on one of these it just makes me happy. The freedom that I feel when working on a canvas gives me great joy. I've incorporated my Washi Tape made using my Gelli Arts Printing Plate that I blogged about earlier, Prima Marketing Washi Tape, cardstock, scrapbooking paper, Stamp Washi Tape from 7 Gypsies Journey, a variety of Crafter's Workshop stencils, and used Jacquard Lumiere and Neopaque paints. I used Pearl Turquoise #571, Halo Blue Gold #556, Pearl Blue #570, and Halo Pink Gold #555 in the Lumiere line. I also used Neopaque White, Blue and Turquoise. I used a 3/4" brush to slip slap the paint onto the canvas in a random manner and using my finger randomly blended the Lumiere Metallics onto the canvas. Used Americana DecouPage to attach all of the pieces to the canvas.
I am very fond of these paints, they are absolutely luminous and the metallic paints are some of the best that I have ever used. You could easily substitute different paint brands and paint colors, in fact I'm sure that Deco Art Americana has paint colors that would work beautifully. Once I have started working on the foreground of this canvas I will post my progress as I go.
I'd love to hear what you think of these mixed media canvases.
