Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande

I have a mixed media project that needs protection from outside environmental enemies.

It's a combination of oil paint and standard copy/print paper with various images printed upon it.

I need a good sealer that will protect the images and not smudge them or take too long to dry and will not cause the paint to look dull.

Can you help?
Thanks!

Mixed Media Art Questions answered by Milliande

Hi Heather

different paints react differently to various kinds of sealants ..

I use a spray sealant usually iver a watersoluble artwork .. ie if I used watercolor paints or watersoluble crayons /pencils etc where there is a risk that a brush on varnish or sealant is going to smudge.

In that case I use a sealant that is designed for to fix pastels .. so more of a fixative than a sealant . The reason is that I only want to fix the paint in place before I apply a varnish or sealant .

There are a wide variety of sealants and varnishes on the market ..each with different effects... one can choose form gloss varnish, semi gloss to matte.

The Company Golden also manufactures a brush on varnish that contains a UV protective agent , thus providing protection from sunlight .

As far as I know traditional Oilpaint usually does not requite much of a sealant ... however I am not an expert there.

in Mixed Media Projects where oil crayons or oil paint is used as well ..one has to wait before the oilpaint elements is thoroughly dried ( which can take weeks) before applying any sealant ... then also choose a varnish that is compatible with oilpaint if that is the main ingredient .


Hope this helps
Golden produces a variety of videos on thir website, might be worth a look

Good luck

Honestly, it is to some degree inconceivable for me to trust that it is totally made of oil paints. The flawlessness is the thing that really diverting me.

Mixed media painting looks very different and unique when posted on the wall. There are many preservative methods using spray sealers mentioned in superiorpapers.com promo codes which could help you find the suitable one. However, there are few effects which would not nullify even after taking measures and such things could damage the painting over the course of time.

Wow… That is oil painting? To be frank, it is somewhat impossible for me to believe that it is completely made of oil paints. The perfection is what actually amusing me. I haven’t seen anything this perfect from a beginner.
