Memories Mixed Media Wall Display with Smoothfoam®
I have been on a mixed media spree of late and Smoothfoam® is an amazing surface to create on. Today I am using the 1x6x12" Smoothfoam Sheet as my base.
I started by gluing a layer of chipboard to the Smoothfoam® and then painting the entire surface with a coat of DecoArt Gesso from their Media Line.
Add the second layer of chipboard and coat this with gesso as well. Let everything dry well.
I began layering color on by using . After that I added fluid acrylics, then let those dry. My last layer of color was the Metallic Lustre - I added bits and pieces of color all over the piece randomly.
I added Crackle Glaze to a few of the pieces for some visual interest.
Last up I added accents on one piece of the chipboard using Liquid Glass. When dry I accented it with Metallic Lustre.
