Bird's Nest Nature Art with Mixed Media
Posted on April 08 2020
A nature mixed media art DIY!
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with a tutorial for a bird nest using Creative Studio Translucent Gelatos & Goldfaber Color Pencils. A nest full of eggs speaks to me of hope. I have made a complete materials list for you.
9 x 12 inches watercolor paper
Trimmer, matted picture frame - optional
Start with a light sketch of the nest with eggs using the Castell 9000 pencil 2B on watercolor paper.
Start coloring the nest and eggs with the Translucent Gelatos colors.
Blend the colors with paint brush dipped in water.
Once the colors are dry, start adding details, texture and more colors using various shades of Goldfaber Color Pencils.
Create an egg-shaped background using the Goldfaber Color pencils to finish.
If you wish to frame your bird nest, trim the paper to 8 x 10 inches and place it in a matted picture frame as a reminder of hope.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating it. Stay well and stay creative.
