Once texture paste completely dry applied flesh tint acrylic colour allover the box.


Later mixed turquoise blue with Decoart antiquing medium applied all over box and while it is wet use a cloth or wet tissue rub over to remove excess colour.

Mixed Media Wall Art Tutorial by DT Kriti Mishra


Namaste everyone!!


I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. 

Today, I am here with a tutorial post. I have made a mixed media wall art and here's a sneak peak





Let's begin


1. Firstly take a watercolor paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.




2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in a random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso (apply gesso with a spatula to create an interesting texture). Now randomly add some thread to further create texture and cover it with gesso. Completely dry it with a heat gun.




3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Let them move around and blend. Stop when you get the desired shade.



4. After that use any background stamp ( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.



5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellished it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and sequins). Lastly, adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment (I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.

Altered Glass and Altered Photo Frame Tutorial By GD Vinita Jain


Hello Everyone,

This is Vinita here, I am delighted to be guest designing this month with Rainbow Craftykari Store. Today, I'll be teaching two projects Mixed Media Altered Projects.

Let's Begin

In this project, I have added a gift with the Photo Frame, so this is a bonus project for all of you. I altered a glass container which has a lid into this beautiful decor piece!!!


Now let me show the steps how I created this MM altered art!


Step 1.

Take any plastic container, clean it properly from any stains or dust particles and dry it. Now apply spray paint on it. But for precaution keep the container in any box/carton and cover the glass with the spray paint. You can wear gloves too. Now let it dry for half an hour or little more.


Step 2:

I used different types of embellishments in this creation. In a picture frame, silicon mold using clear glue sticks and heat glue gun filled this mold.

Let it dry, hardly took 15 minutes. If you don't have glue gun and sticks you can also use dry clay which can be easily molded into any shape you wanted. Here I used it for a 3D baby mold, cover the space tightly as shown in the picture. Let it dry in the air, took one hour to dry properly.


Step3:

Now take out these embellishments from the mold carefully. Time to color them I used some alcohol inks, Fevicryl Pearl colors, some Inka gold from Viva in different colors.


Step 4.

The Inka Gold colors are so versatile you can apply them on any embellishment, it can even be diluted in water too. Here as shown in the pic, I first applied Gesso on all these embellishments using sponge, then the impact of color will be more bright and if you use black Gesso, it will create different textures. On the metal embellishments, I used a spray, Inka Gold, alcohol inks and burnished them with gold color for detailing work after drying. Even I applied Gesso to my trims to make them little thicker and applied different inks.

I applied Gesso on bamboo sticks and one of the pencil too.


Step 5:

On the glass container to create textures, I give it a coat of gesso and using a comb created a wood panel look. Now burnished the different mediums to highlight the details as shown in the pic.


Step 6:

Now start embellishing it. Using my glue gun I attached all the embellishments easily.


I added lots of different paper flowers, blings, jewel stones, fillers and added a sentiment too which I covered it with Inka Gold mediums. Now using tacky glue gel I spread crystal clear sparkle too.


This is the top, I covered it with a lace, pearl string, a beautiful trim butterfly and other embellishments.


Here is the Final pic!


Here is the Video I have made of MM Altered Art

Next Project is Altered Photo Frame, giving it a uniqueness and make great gifts!

I love Mixed Media art....Throwing on the layers, textures and just having fun! Blue is my favorite color and I added some gold with lots of blue hues! You will see some of the metal embellishments, chippies, handmade flowers, doilies and stencilling peeking through!




The first thing I covered the chipboard frame with a coat of white gesso. After drying, I applied cheese cloth all over using Mod Podge.


Here what it looks like before adding gesso and sprays. I roughly set up all the things on this frame and took a photo. Now added texture paste using some stencils for textures, Arranged all the embellishments, charms, different flowers, MDF flourishes and many more things according to my need and again applied a layer of gesso.


Now applied lots of layer of different inks, spray, Viva gold, glitters etc. At the bottom layer, I pasted a sequins lace too. For more textures and interest, I added microbeads in two varieties randomly, added a cute tiny heart, jewelled stone at the lamp post. Added a string of pearls inside the edges of photo panel.

I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful photo frame creation!
