Today I’m up on Lindy’s Gang with a new mixed media canvas created with some amazing grungy, industrial techniques.
- Glue some pieces of different papers with a Soft Gel
- Blend all the paper pieces with White Gesso
- Add a design with a stencil and Plaster paste
- Add some White crackle paste here and there; let it dry naturally
- Add some Graphite paste as well here and there
- Prime some resin elements and computer parts with White Gesso;
- Paint the Graphite paste with White Gesso to
- Glue the embellishments to your liking with Heavy Body Gel;
- Mix your Magicals with Liquid Fluid Medium. I use Black Hole Black, Sandra Dee Sepia first to paint the background and the resin elements. Then I continue with Gag Me With a Spoon Gray, Steel Shimmer, and Milky Way White;
- You need to dry everything before the next step. Mix a tiny amount of Soft Gloss Gel with water, and add some splatter;
- Cover the splatters with Terra Cotta Rust EP. Be careful to remove all the unwanted embossing powder before heat embossing;
- Add some Chrome Doesn’t Pay EP as well;
- Whiten the background and highlight the elements of the composition with Old White and Old Silver waxes;
- To finish, add some glass glitter.

One thought on “Power of a Smile – Industrial Mixed Media Canvas by Pascale B.”
I just adore this “Power of a Smile” artwork. The tiny touches of red provide an excellent accent.
And I love the pieces from that mould.
I’ve managed to buy most of the supplies you mentioned but the Sterling Glass Glitter eludes me. Unless I pay extortionate shipping costs to the UK.
Not gonna happen.
Looking forward to trying out the mould especially.
I’ll have to think of something to replace the Joker though. I’ll have to think about that.
Thanks so much for posting this project – I love it.
