Being like... {Episode 2}

Do you remember this post by Agnieszka Anna where she tells us her story of following the masters?
Today, she's here sharing a new stunning work resulting from her "art meetings".

As you maybe know, sometimes I like to experiment with my art and do these creative exercises when I try to imitate one of the artists I admire. Maybe "imitate" is not exactly the right word. Drawing inspiration sounds a lot better. :)
Just for a little while I want to be someone else...
And how about the king of altered art today?
For a long time, Michael de Meng's artworks have been a huge inspiration for me. And that was the case in this piece - I tried to recreate Michael's unique feel and atmosphere. I hope I succeded.

First of all, I primed my canvas, a chipboard and an old brush with gesso and white sand paste. I applied them with a sponge. The sand paste is a great medium to give some interesting texture.
The next step was painting my primed objects with gold crackle texture paste. Before glueing the chipboard, I sprayed it with a Glimmer Mist.

Having everything prepared that way, I started painting with Inka Gold pastes. They are super easy and quick to apply, they dry fast and add a beautiful mettalic effect.
You can use them with a wet or dry brush or apply with a soft cloth or sponge.

The final touch was painting with acrylic paints and Glimmer Glaze that are just perfect for painting metal surfaces. I glued the metal embellishments - gel mediums work great with heavy elements and finally, I added some Liquid Pearls that make ideal delicate accents.

Materials from Mixed Media Place:


  1. Beautiful! Love all the texture and the soft yet vibrant colors.

  2. Like always... higher level of art. <3
