Mixed Media Patina Technique with Anat

Hey Gang! Anat here and I’m so excited to be here with another step by step tutorial for Lindy’s.  Today I’m going to show you how I made my project for the color Challenge this month – April.

You will see how to create this Mixed Media project with a patina technique using gorgeous Magicals and Shakers from Lindys.

Basic Process

  1. Prime the MDF base with white heavy Gesso
  2. Mix 3D Gloss Gel with Aged Copper Shaker. Cover the base with the mixture.
  3. Take a Candle and rub it on the painted base
  4. Mix white heavy Gesso with Mad hatter mint Green and Whale watch Blue Magicals. Cover the base with the mixture.
    Let it dry naturally! Don’t use a heating gun as it will melt the candle
  5. Use fine sandpaper to sand the base randomly, imitating peeled paint.
  6. Mix Platinium Crackle Paste with Mad hatter mint Green and Whale watch Blue Magicals
  7. Spread the mixture through a stencil
  8. Color chipboard elements with Sunset Yellow Orange Embossing Powder
  9. Add to the chipboard elements Geranium Coral Blush Embossing Powder
  10. Add to the chipboard Wings Desert Moon Turquoise Embossing Powder
  11. Add White Crackle Paste
  12. Start building the composition using the main Image, embossed Chipboards and paper Flowers.
  13. Add to the project a mixture of 3D Gel and Art Stones.
  14. Color paper flowers and elements with Cape Cod Coral Magical diluted with water
  15. Add Splats of Glory of the seas Gold Spray
  16. Color paper flowers and elements with Mad hatter mint Green Magical diluted with water
  17. Add to the elements White Heavy Gesso
  18. Add to the project Gold Glass Glitter
