It’s time to take mixed media into the kitchen with this stunning project that upcycles an old muffin tin! This class is perfect for all skill levels, giving students the confidence to take their mixed media artwork to an entirely new dimension. We’ll begin by creating backgrounds in each individual holder from fabric shaped and stiffened with Sculpture Medium. Next the background of the tin face will be created with stamps, collage and stencils using products from Imagine and Finnabair. A rusted finish will then be applied to the background, highlighted with waxes, mica powders, glass glitter, micro beads and more!
