It’s mixed media Tuesday and time for another fun project! Today I created a wooden panel that will decorate my craft room. The idea came from the quote “so many ideas, so little time”. I used resin to cast my 3 dimentional elements and represent words from that wuote. So I have the bulb representing the “ideas” and the clock mechanism representing the “time”.
I combined lots of mixed media techniques including casting resin and dry brushing. Check out the step by step video tutorial below.

I created everything inside an 8×8 wooden panel.
All the dimentional elements were made using Alumilite Amazing Resin that cures in 10 minutes.
I used three different molds from the Sir Vagabond collection. One had the clock mechanism, the other the light bulb and the third one lots of gears. They are all linked below the photos along with the rest of the supplies.
For the background I simply used a rice paper, doesn’t get any easier than that!
The detail on the molds and how the resin picks everything is unbelievable.
Dry brushing really is a magic technique. Love how some white plastic pieces can look so authentic and as if they are made out of metal. That’s the joy of mixed media! Dimension and different elements all come together to a unique piece of art.
