The main painting mediums used generally are acrylics, watercolors, oils, pastels.
There are various painting media in combination with each other, and also with other materials, such as wax, gels, powders, gelatin, clay and more.
One of the strengths of Painting with Mixed Media is the sheer number of techniques it demonstrates, including painting, drawing, layering, collaging, texturizing and more!
By using these techniques, you can make collages, scrapbook pages, decorations, greeting cards - any type of artwork you can think of, really.
Painting with Mixed Media encourages you to step out of the box, to move beyond the concept of simply applying paint to canvas and to try new things, explore new combinations, and experiment with new techniques.
