Small mixed media painting

Hello my friends,

I’m back this afternoon to share a small mixed media painting I have finished using Brusho colours and some other supplies from the Shop, I will list everything I used at the end of this post.

So here we go!

I started working on my background by sprinkling Brusho colours ( I used black, emerald green, turquoise, ultra marine, sandstone and gamboge) on a piece of heavy weight watercolour paper and then I spritzed some water. Dried everything and then added more  Brushos and this time I sprayed some ColourArte Radiant Rain shimmer spray in Pewter and a homemade shimmer spray using ColourArte Pure mica minerals in Solar gold.

(If you didn’t hear about Brusho yet, it’s a brilliantly intense water-based paint in powder form, manufactured here in the UK. I am new to it myself, but I must say I’m totally in love with the versatility and intensity of these wonderful colours. The effects created are awesome and every time I play with them I discover more and more ways to use them.)

When I was happy with how my background looked like I dried it using a heating tool and then I applied some gesso through a couple of stencils dabbing with a sponge.

When the gesso was dry, I painted the flowers using (again) Brushos, I stamped the Donna Downey sentiment, added few gorgeous Prima crystals and a lovely Prima vellum butterfly. I finished by adding drops of white acrylic paint in a Fineline applicator bottle that I dabbed with a sponge and some splatters of Tumble dye spray.

Always believe something wonderful is about to happen… and it will! (wink) 🙂

  3. Sooo pretty! I have all of the ColourArte products and love them and their intensity. Are Brusho colors like their Primary Elements powders? Love how they all blend together too:)

    • Thank you Julie! I love the ColourArte products as well, but the Brusho ones are different, they don’t have any mica in them. I guess the best description would be watercolour in powder form. As for the blending it’s done almost only by the colours themselves when you add water, they are truly unique 🙂
