Day 7 – 7 Days of Halloween 2021 – “Shades of Age”

In today’s 7 Days of Halloween video, I’m creating a mixed media 3D canvas, which is something I’ve not done for a long time. So using some Halloweenish poly resin items I’ve cast recently, using some Finnabair silicone moulds from Prima Marketing, plus a few silicone moulds I’ve made myself in the past I set to work on a box edged 10″ x 10″ canvas. Using Salvaged Patina Distress paint from Tim Holtz and Black Gesso & Brass Monkey metallic paint from IndigoBlu.

Mixed Media Rust Canvas – No63

An absence of mojo left me seeking inspiration and ideas from the Mar/April edition of Somerset Studios magazine. Inside (p118-119) was a double page spread of 4 rust effect mixed media pieces that stood out and spoke to me in their layout, colour theme and design. The pieces were created by Irl Nobel of Gilbert, Arizona in the US.

This gave me the spark of inspiration and creative mojo that I needed to create the piece above. The photo is of Ian as a baby in 1963. To see how I created my mixed media piece from start to finish, click the YouTube image below.
