Welcome Back

Lots of us want to get into mixed media but don’t know where to start. I hope with this series; to help you find the tools, materials and techniques to get you started on your mixed media journey. This workshop is offered for free because I know how its often a class vs materials kind of deal for a lot of us right now.

Lesson one of this free mixed media workshop can be found below

Lesson 1: Tool Care

You can spend quite a while collecting your favourite tools and the last thing you want to do is let them go to waste because you let paint dry on them. Acrylic paint will harden and ruin brushes/pallets and pallet knives, so check out this tutorial to help your tools last longer.

Do check back next Wednesday for the next lesson. If you find tips that help, do post on the social media sites, and tell others about this course. Leave me a comment if you have any questions and I’ll try to help you all I can.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie :)
