Create Mixed Media Art Panel with Patina Frame

Hello all,

Posting today to share with you a Mixed Media Art Panel made with lots of bits and pieces paired with great texture and layers.  The frame was painted with home made patina mediums (made with acrylic paint, texture powder and sand).  Of course, you could always use a Patina kit, rather than making your own mediums.  Kits are a great option and decreases the tension of trying something new!  Be sure to check out the Mixed Media Quick Tips video below for the step by steps.
