Watch as Mrs Red 

does the mixed media peacock artwork.

Choose your art materials

What art materials you use is entirely up to you, just make sure its more than one type, otherwise it's not mixed media. Nobody has to go out and purchase anything if you do not wish to. Use what you have at home but if you want to try something new, then go for it! Oh and the Brusho is missing from this photo, doh!

The template is A3 size and Mrs Red would love everyone to keep their peacock at this size however if you go smaller because of printer limitations etc then that is not a problem either. I found that I could print the head area and just drew the body back in myself, as I only have an A4 printer. BUT.... you must use this peacock template to be entered into the competition for the art prize.  

Some mixed media ideas!

• Watercolour and drawing pens (as per example)

• Acrylic paint and mediums (like Liquitex Glass Beads)

• Tissue paper collage

• Gouache and paint pens

• Brusho and drawing pens

• Pastels and paint

• Old book pages, washi tape and glitter glue

As for your surface, that will depend on your media. For example, if you choose watercolour and pens, then a smooth watercolour paper is best. If you decide on acrylic paint and mediums then a canvas is a better idea.
