Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft has made it easier than ever to try mixed media for the first time, or if you are an experienced mixed media artist, to try out new techniques. Combine one of the many color options with one of the varied textured mediums and apply the products using tools designed to create a unique project every time. It really is as simple as 1, 2, 3! Check out the video and steps below to create your own piece of mixed media artwork.
Step 1: Apply gesso to a piece of mixed media paper or board. Speed up drying time with a heat tool.
Step 2: Once dry, scribble randomly at the top and bottom of your surface using a variety of Gelatos.
Step 3: Using water and a paint brush, blend Gelatos.
Step 4: Position desired quote stencil in place and use a pencil to lightly trace the letters.
Step 5: Fill in the letters using PITT Artist Pens. Try coloring them in, adding a texture or trace over script words to practice your hand lettering.
Step 6: Using the black, fine point PITT Artist Pen, outline and accent your design.
Step 7: Apply a bit of Gelato to your craft mat or an acrylic block and use a brush and water to apply it to your surface.
Step 9: Once dry, add more line details where desired and hang!
