Pebeo Mixed Media Portrait with Jenny Muncaster

28/09/2016 08:00

Artist Jenny Muncaster, step by step on how to create simple yet effective art using the Pebeo Mixed Media range of products.

Mixed Media Portrait, What you'll need...

Canvas Board
Vitrail Glass Paint
Fantasy Moon & Prisme
Vitrail Glitter Medium
4Artist Markers
Brushes
Odourless Mineral Spirit
Pipettes

- Take some Vitrail Yellow and roughly mark out three flower heads, cover the rest of the board using the same Vitrail

- Next taking the Fantasy Moon Turquoise, drizzle the paint around the flower head outlines. Then brush out the paint to combine the two colours and create the pearlescent effect

- Wash your brush using the Odourless Mineral Spirit then take the Vitrail Red and add colour to the flower heads. Then using the flat end of the brush gently add the petals of the flower.

- Next take the Fantasy Prisme Eggshell White and again using the flat end of the brush gently add the white on top of the red to create contrast. To make this easier, decant some of the Eggshell White onto a palette or canvas board for easier application onto the brush.

- Again clean your brush with the Odourless Mineral Spirit, a good tip is to use a j cloth to wipe the brush clean of the Mineral Spirit once the colour is removed

- Take the Vitrail Emerald and paint the flower stems and leaves then clean your brush again and wipe down with cloth. Now take the Fantasy Prisme Emerald and drizzle on top of the leaves and stems for added effect. The effect will slowly develop over the next few minutes. You can use your brush to further blend and manipulate for desired effect on the leaves

- For further added effect, use the Vitrail Glitter Medium with Pipette and drop wherever desired.

- Once the paint has dried you can then use the 4Artist Markers to add extra effects and details, Jenny recommends 4mm Blue, Copper, Green, Red, Pink and White for this particular portrait but you can add whatever you prefer!

- Using the markers add details to the leaves, stems and petals. Another top tip is to flick the paint from the markers onto and around the petals for nice effect.

- And there you have it, a complete Mixed Media Portrait. Remember it doesnt matter if you drip the paint in the 'wrong' place because any accident can add to and create new suprising effects, you can't go wrong. The paint will continue to develop and the effects change as your painting dries!
