  • Let Go Mixed Media Wood Panel
  • 1. Coat wood panel with gesso; let dry completely.
  • 2. Cut off approximately 1/4" of each Gelato color using palette knife. Place each color in its own cup, then smash with back of palette knife.


  • 3. Pour enough glaze into each container so color can be mixed and blended easily. Mix glaze and color using palette knife, wiping off surface between each color. Let thicken for 30 minutes.


  • 4. Meanwhile, attach cheesecloth strip randomly to panel using craft glue. Glue must dry completely before proceeding.
  • 5. Beginning with color of choice, pour colored glaze onto panel. (Note: It is not necessary to use all of the glaze in the container.) Continue, adding portions of all other colored glazes. Drag palette knife up and down through colors to mingle and streak.


  • 6. Shave bits of silver and black crayons over panel; let settle into glaze. Allow glaze to dry. This could take up to 24 hours.
  • 7. Stamp sentiment on tissue paper using black pen; cut or tear out. Adhere paper to panel using Gel Medium applied with paintbrush. Heat set ink or let air dry. Outline sentiment in rough fashion using pen; let dry.
  • 8. Apply thin layers of glitter gel onto desired portions of panel using palette knife. Let air dry.


  • Tip
  • 1. Applying glitter gel too thickly or heat setting it can cause bubbling and loss of iridescence.
