Today we’re talking texture! Lots of texture. Golden modeling paste and glass bead gel are perfect for creating natural and organic texture that is perfect for glazing.

I loved putting the teal glaze down first so that it shows through subtlety and adds more depth and dimension to these already grungy pieces

I hope that you’ll look around the house and find all kinds of texture making tool and item to imbed into your modeling and just have fun experimenting.

I hope you enjoy the video

I'm a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood. I've been teaching and painting for over 26 years in many different mediums, but found my art soul mate in mixed media.

I have been published in several magazines, and have been part of Donna Downey’s Artist Gang and Deco Art Media Design team for several years.

I produce my own line of stencils and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media.
