New Powertex blog posts
I love to use Powertex Bister in my art. It’s unique properties of intense colour and delicate texture make it perfect for the mixed media, textured finish that I like. I’ve written a series of blog posts about how I use Bister with some tips for your own art and projects.

Mixed media art
Experimenting and mixing different media is what makes art so exciting for me. My go-to supplies include Powertex, structure paste, acrylic inks, charcoal, Powertex Rusty Powder and collage. My art is always developing as I’m exploring new ideas. Recent paintings include stamping tiny hidden messages or numbers, Powertex textures for acrylic inks to flow into and scribbling charcoal on a distressed surface. I’m also using faces that have been appearing in my art journals. No surface is out of bounds with Powertex either! If you want to know about Powertex, this article can help or click for Powertex UK.
Art journals and sketchbooks are the keeper of quiet times for artists. We fill them with colour, pattern and line as well as thoughts, experiments and secrets. We pour our hearts into them as well as our paint. My art journals are my friend, my critic and my sanctuary. I encourage all creative people to keep a visual journal of some kind and use five minute journaling techniques with beginners. I sometimes post my art journal pages on Instagram.
