Red head - mini canvas by Riikka Kovasin

Hello there! It's Riikka here sharing my very first guest post for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I couldn't be more excited! I really enjoy doing mixed media pieces and for my first project I decided to do a smaller scale version of one of my lady canvases.

I used Gelatos® to color the picture and drew the features of the character with PITT® Artists Pens and Stamper's Big Brush Pens. Gelatos® work really well in a project like this as they have that lovely creamy texture and they are easy to mix together just by smearing with your finger.  The end result resembles almost like painting. On the other hand the India ink products like the PITT® Artist Pens are awesome as they stuck to the creamy surface Gelatos® create and also are permanent after drying.

 Underneath is a little video showing how I created the piece - starting with creating the background using Gel Medium and finishing with Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time!
