DIY Tutorial: Mixed Media Altered Picture Frame

Good day Y’all!

Today, I’m sharing an interesting DIY Altered Picture Frame tutorial in few easy steps.

Step 1: I’m altering a wooden picture frame and I’ve assembled a few knick-knacks to go with mixed media project.

Step 2: Compose the elements on the frame and adhere them using a strong glue.

Step 3: Paint a coat of black gesso all over the frame to make it jet black and let dry.

Step 4: Spray Gold alcohol splash in colour of your choice and let dry. I have used ‘Black Soot’.

Step 5: This step is all about playing with colours. My goal is to achieve a vintage distressed appearance and I’ve used various shades of tinted metallic paints to highlight elements.

After some experimentation with Tinted Metallic Paints – this is the final result!

Hope you liked this tutorial. Happy Crafting.
