Types of Texture Paste Mixed Media Basics Ep 6

Hi Everybody,

Khyati here and today we will be talking about all things Texture Pastes. As an artist whenever we start a new art it is really important to learn the basics and that is what my Series – “Mixed Media Basics” is all about and today I am super excited to bring you another episode in it.

But before we get started I would highly recommend you check out Episode 1 – 5 here if you have not

Episode 1 – 5 Mixed Media Basics

Now that you are equipped with the basics let’s move on to today’s video which is about different types of Texture Pastes. At the end of the post I have shared the basic properties of each and every texture paste so be sure to read the post till the end 🙂

Different Types of Texture pastes and their uses – Mixed media Basics Ep. 6

Yes, this video is a bit long but I have kept it as concise and small as I could but still give our maximum information. So those were the different types of texture pastes, their properties and when you can use which paste.

The whole idea of this video is to introduce you to the world of texture pastes however feel free to do your own experiments, I am in no way an expert what I say in the video is my personal experience over the period of years with the experiments of my own in the world of Art.
I feel the best way to learn is to do it yourself and learn by making mistakes 🙂
