My Top Three: Mixed Media Supplies

Hi dear crafty friends!

 Today on My Top Three: Mixed Media Tools. First let me say that these are my favorite three mixed media tools for now. It keeps changing so if you ask me this question in a few months you might get a different list of My Top Three: Mixed Media Supplies 🙂

 

My Top Three: Mixed Media Supplies

Texture Pastes

Recently I'm all about texture. In almost all my mixed media projects I work with a lot of texture that I like to add with texture pastes. There are a few kinds I really like: Rust pastes, which give an amazing look and texture of real rusted metal and you can even apply them on plastic, canvas or any surface. Textured modeling paste that has a sandy texture and is really easy to apply with or without stencils. And finally Pastes that I create myself by mixing gesso or gel medium with little or medium size stones.

 

Metal items

Remember what I said in the beginning? well this is likely to never change... I love anything metal and I will always add it to my mixed media projects especially the steampunk projects. That includes clock parts, rusted items, DIY store items and lots of junk 🙂

 

Thin Canvas

My favorite surface to work on is a thin canvas. It's almost a thick paper that can take whatever you put on it. It saves me the trouble of working on the sides of a regular canvas but it's still durable. It's also much easier to hang on the wall with a ribbon or to attach a hanger on the back.

There are more supplies that are absolutely important and I can't live without like gesso, heavy gel medium or stencils, but they are kind of obvious right?
