Mixed Media is a kind of art in which more than one media are used. Mixed media painting is tricky and can easily go wrong. Layers should be chosen carefully and proper drying time should be allowed between the layers to ensure the good looks of the final work. A strong foundation should be used to apply the different layers. Oil based layers are used at the end. Interesting effects can be produced using mixed media. Combinations of different elements of art allow more flexibility than traditional art media.
