VIDEO: Easy Layering Acrylic Paint Techniques For Mixed Media Art


My Sunday art video this week is only short but it is packed with techniques! I’m sharing lots of easy layering techniques for using with your acrylic paints and I know, the project looks way too simple to have lots of different techniques doesn’t it? Well you know me, I love a bit of simple designing, I do lean towards clean and simple design again and again, I mean mixed media doesn’t have to be complex now does it? And simple doesn’t have to mean not full of ideas and techniques!

So I hope you catch all the easy layering techniques I share, don’t blink otherwise you might miss them! And if you are looking for the butterflies that I used on this project then go join my Patreon page to grab them and my tutorials and more art sharing too! You can join for as little as $1 ($1+EU tax if you are in the EU) and cancel or change your pledge as you need, did you know that?

There is a close-up piccy of the butterflies below and the supplies list too!
