Mixed Media Art Canvas – Learning How to Fly

For this 8×8 flat panel canvas I had the idea to use a feather shape as the main focal point, I also wanted to add some rust and patina to the piece to make it look almost mechanical. It does have a little steampunk aesthetic, but not too much. The feather is cut from grey grunge board, as are some of the cogs and gears, the rest are found items, beads and MDF shapes. The main ingredient however is the corrugated cardboard pieces that make up the base structure. To watch the creation process from start to finish click the YouTube link below.

If you enjoy the process video, please remember to give it a thumbs up, it really does help!
