Pebeo Mixed Media Art

What Is Pebeo Mixed Media?

Pebeo Mixed Media multiplies the effects possible in your artwork.  By combining products that are not necessarily designed for use with each other you get unexpected and inspiring results.  Not a sludgy mess that you might expect!

Mixed Media is not a new concept however Pebeo, known for innovation and experimentation, is pushing the boundaries of its existing range.  Artists and crafters are being urged to experiment with products normally confined to their own areas of fine art, craft and casting, by using them together.

Mixed Media Artist Dennis Metcalf creates the most amazing gem like work with Pebeo Mixed Media.  Dennis reviews Pebeo Mixed Media:

“Colour, texture, shape and light define unique and ever changing applications of these new age mediums produced by Pebeo.  Ideas may or may not be preconceived, as I allow the paints and mediums to interact in a spontaneous manner in order to create an impactive visual effect.”

How Do I Use Pebeo Mixed Media Products?

You can use Pebeo products by themselves but when you combine them they take on a life of their own.   Pouring and dripping achieve the most amazing results.

Combine Pebeo Fantasy Prisme Paints with Pebeo Fantasy Moon Paints to create surprising effects.  Fantasy Moon will give you a hammered pearlescent effect that will appear immediately when applied thinly or thickly, while Fantasy Prisme will change in appearance over time giving you an unusual two tone honeycomb effect.  You can manipulate both of these solvent based paints during the drying time.  Pour either of these paints onto Vitrail solvent based Glass Paint to create interesting textures, transparency and contrasts.

Pebeo Vitrail Glass Paint is not just a decorative glass paint as it is now being used more and more by Mixed Media Artists.  I found this Pebeo Mixed Media product particularly exciting and its applications are varied.  Many oil painters for example are discovering the joy of painting with Vitrail on canvas.  The transparent and opalescent colours have an amazing sheen to them and are ideal for creating layers of rich, transparent colour.

 

Using Resins In Mixed Media Art
Look what you can do with Crystal Resin, Pebeo Vitrail Glass Paints & Pebeo Fantasy Paint!

 

Adding Pebeo Vitrail to Gedeo Crystal Resin will give you an unlimited range of brightly coloured casting resins.  Adding Pebeo Vitrail Opaque Glass Paints will give you lighter pastel shades, while adding Pebeo Vitrail Transparent Glass Paints will result in a brilliant transparent range.

Gedeo Resins are a great addition to Pebeo Mixed Media.  The two part epoxy resin system make Gedeo resins very easy to use.  Pour over your dry Mixed Media Artwork to add depth and shine.  Cast objects, add inclusions such as photographs and metal leaf and pour over collage and abstract art to form a protective coating.

 

           

 

Use Pebeo Cerne Relief in your Pebeo Mixed Media Art to create outlines or barriers for dropping Vitrail or Fantasy colours into.  Normally used as a three dimensional glass paint outliner, Cerne Relief can add a decorative element to your Mixed Media artwork.

We are very excited by the new Gedeo Mirror Effect Metal Leaf. Metal leaf is very popular in Mixed Media art.  The high gloss mirror effect sheets are so easy to apply and come in 5 colours.  Applying the leaf to a painted canvas couldn’t be easier.  Just let the paint dry until tacky then apply gentle pressure to the leaf.  This product will feature on everything this christmas I am sure!

Increase Your Pebeo Mixed Media Effects With Acrylic Mediums:

Experiment some more with your mixed media art by introducing some Pebeo Acrylic Mediums.  Mix Pebeo Sand Texture Gel with paint or apply with a palette knife to add a grainy texture to your artwork.  It comes in yellow, red, black and white.   Pebeo Bindex is a non-yellowing and waterproof liquid medium making it ideal for all paper craft and collage work.  For achieving the glossiest glazes in your mixed media artwork use Pebeo Brilliant Gloss Gel Medium.  Use it to increase the transparency and drying time of acrylic paints.  It is deal for creating layers of transparent glazes and really intensifies your colours with it’s glossy sheen.

Pebeo Acrylic Mediums can be used with or without colour and in any amount, add as little or as much as you like!

  1. I bought my first few pebeo paints yesterday! I had to save for them but we’ll worth it!!! I’ll see what I can do with them this weekend!!
    Thanks so much!

  2. I’ve purchased a few products and I am wondering, can they be used over non-pebeo products? For example, can Fantasy be used in concert with other acrylic paints on the same canvas?

    1. Hi Berni

      Yes, both Pebeo Fantasy Moon and Prisme can be used with most acrylic paints to create Mixed Media pieces. They both give stunning effects and can be used alongside many different Pebeo products too.
      Thank you for your question,
      Kind regards,
      Emma

  3. I would like to try the prime and moon on barnwood pieces. Do you think this will work? Would you recommend special preparation?

  4. Waiting on my next order of Pebeo paint from pullingers. Think I am addicted. Can’t wait to start experimenting.

    I have used the prisms, moon and vitrale paint on clear acetate and it give stain glass stunning results. You can see some of the results here on twitter @RoseAnson Art
