“Mixed media art refers to a visual art form that combines a variety of media in a single artwork. For example, if you draw with ink, then paint over it with watercolors, then add some highlights in colored pencil – that’s mixed media!”- Art is Fun

I worked in a bead tray to contain the talcum powder, which prevents the clay from sticking.
These were made with oven bake clay which I got at a dollar store.
I placed them on parchment paper and baked them in an oven.
Planning the coasters before painting. On the left are metal stickers.
I turned the top photo into a sketch in a photo editing software, which I printed for later reference.
I used stencils, a palette knife and Polyfilla (a texture paste alternative) to apply texture to the coasters. I used the green stencil for the big coasters, the others were made with the felt coaster and a paper doily.
Embellishments painted black. Use an old bristle brush to get into the nooks and crannies.
“I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black.”
Coasters painted black. Hold up and tilt and the coasters to do the sides.
Planning placements again.
