For certain individuals it’s difficult to begin on the off chance that we believe we are “squandering” our things while having a go at something new. With straightforward beginning materials, those new to blended media undertakings can bounce in without stressing over this viewpoint.
Locate an old oat box, cut cautiously along the folds and remove the tab closes, so you are left with a decent measured, level bit of cardboard. Spot it on a level surface, with the inward, non-printed side confronting you. Uncover your paints and paint brushes, and pick a few hues that take your extravagant. On the off chance that you are not certain is brushing hues, pick one shading with three unique shades. At that point get painting! You needn’t bother with a bed; either crush a little paint out straight onto the surface or press a little up that can be taken onto the brush. Try not to feel bashful – make twirls and lines and squiggles. Simply get a decent inclusion of paint around the bit of card board. It doesn’t need to be totally secured. Leave that to dry for somewhat, at that point include the following shading. In the wake of drying, rehash with the third shading. Leave the piece to dry totally. On the off chance that it clasps a bit, sit it under an overwhelming book and it will smooth out once more.
By trusting that each layer will dry, each shading will get it’s very own space and not mix with different hues. I frequently work from lightest shading to darkest, utilizing less paint on each layer. Be that as it may, there are no rights or wrongs with this procedure; simply go with what feels bravo.
Presently get together your odds and ends. Regularly a blended media piece will contain a picture, a few words or message and a couple of pretty things or embellishments. Lay these out on your piece and get the vibe for how your bits sit and blend with different bits. Have a go at moving a few sections to cover different things. When you are content with the game plan, start sticking layers down. Make sure to begin with the base most pieces first. When all bits are paste down, leave to dry.
