I am so excited to be able to finally share with everyone, that I decided to show you what I am currently working on. This piece is Mixed Media and was inspired by tutorials I had taken by the talented Megan K. Suarez. If you have not checked out her tutorials and works, I highly recommend that you stop by. She takes you step by step from the drawing process all the way through to the final steps and is very easy to follow along with. She also used various mediums, including Copic Markers and Acrylics. I will post links to her site and Facebook at the end of this message.
Mine is being done using the following supplies:
- Copy paper for original sketch
- Mechanical Pencil & Eraser
- Saral Wax Free Transfer Paper
- Arches Grain Satin Hot Pressed 140 lb Watercolor Paper
- Golden Heavy Body Acrylic Paints
- Golden Fluid Acrylics
- Golden Fluid Interference Acrylic
- Copic Liner Pen
- Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Paper
- Golden Gel Medium
- Simply Simmons Acrylic Brushes
In the future I hope to do some step by steps for you on some of my projects, and eventually some YouTube videos. In the meantime I wanted to at least share what I am using.
I am in love with Sugar Skulls, they are so much fun to create and have that whimsical side that really moves me. It will be interesting to see how my version of them develops over time.
This piece does not have a name, so if you have a suggestion let me know. I would love to hear your input and ideas.
Be sure to check out Megan’s site and Facebook Page, I have them listed below. In the meantime, “Keep Art in Your Heart” Hugs & Love – Ranae’
