Mixed Media Steampunk Style.


All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
– Edgar Allan Poe

MY INSPIRATION: Altered CD/DVD with Finnabair Waxes and Moulds

Keren Tamir used Gesso for a base, I cleaned the CD with Alcohol and then used Modge Podge as a base.

I used Pearlescent paint and metallic paints instead of waxes.

You can also make your own waxes, Metallic paint, etc. :

“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
