I really love combining and discovering all kinds of techniques in my mixed media paintings. Powertex in combination with various fillers and materials is a strong base. And it’s also very inspiring to combine Cold Wax and Encaustic Art (hot wax) with various mixed media techniques. I like to play and put various gifts from nature into my paintings. Discovering the possibilities is endless and to me Mixed Media is much more than just a collage technique.
Most of my artwork is sold. I sell through Etsy, a worldwide platform for selling unique handmade items. Go and have a look at my current offers.

Used materials in Mixed Media Paintings
I only use quality materials.
In my Mixed Media Paintings I often work with Powertex and the family of various materials by Powertex like Easy3DFlex, Stone-Art, Easy Structure, 3D Sand and Balls, and Powerwax.
For coloring the artwork I use Amsterdam Experts Acrylics and Inks, Fluids and High Flow Acrylics from Golden, and other various professional brands. The paint is highly pigmented and the colors are bright and deep and they will last. Besides acrylics I also use pigments, metallic, powders and so on; all from the known professional brands and way to much to mention here in a list.
I also use various mediums (thinners, thickers, gels) of professional brands like Golden and Liquitex.
The canvasses I use are all stretched on a quality stretcher. The panels (canvas boards) I use are from a fine quality, not the cheap ones. I also use wooden Ampersand Boards.
I always paint the sides of a stretched canvas or boards, sometimes in one color, other times in the colors of the painting. You do not need to frame the artwork, but framing in a cradled frame will give the painting a whole new dimension.
I varnish all my artwork for protection and perhaps for a little shine. Some of my artwork is varnished in a Matt finish.
