Mixed Media Alchemy: A Video Demonstration by Lisa Cyr

Voyage to Michaelania: Mixed Media Techniques for Painting

This three-part, step-by-step video series discusses working in an exploratory mixed-media process, finding sources of inspiration, using altered, repurposed and custom tools for signature mark-making and utilizing alternative surfaces and materials. It also covers conceptual ideation and the development of personal content.

In Part One, I explore several mixed media techniques, including texturing the working ground, employing ink transfers, transparent and opaque painting and monoprinting.

Part Two covers topics such as creating multidimensional accents, using die-cut and debossed paper, infusing pattern and texture, employing a patina, dry brushing and sponging.

Part Three finalizes the painting with mixed-media techniques such as sgraffito, spattering, custom debossing using a handmade stamp, altering hardware and adding a patina to vintage assemblage accents.

If you are interested in learning more, this step-by-step demonstration and others are featured in my latest mixed-media book called Experimental Painting.






I look forward to seeing your mixed-media inspired work!
