Mixed Media Technique Instructions continued
This is a bit more than a background technique as it has everything embedded, but you can still add more bling if you want, I have added a few gem stones here and there. Most of all have fun with it. There is no right or wrong, if you do not like the finish, gesso over the whole thing and start again!
You can stop adding colour earlier if you prefer and have a pastel finish with some white still showing through.
Use Treasure Gold, Rub n Buff gilding paste or similar to highlight raised areas on the board. Finish with black ink blended around the outside edges.
