Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Forest Floor" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Forest Floor" 8x8 mm collage by Carol Nelson

This is another mixed media collage featuring the air dry clay leaves that I teach students in my mixed media workshops.

A cradled wood panel is an especially good substrate for this type of work because it is a non-flexible solid surface that can support the weight of all the collage materials.

Mixed Media Metal Collage, "Copper and Rust" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Copper and Rust" mm collage by Carol Nelson
The unusual thing about this painting is the background color. At Home Depot, I came across a pint of "oops paint", meaning some customer did not like the color that was mixed, so it was heavily discounted.

This happened to be Ralph Lauren's Polished Patina series, color Scarlet Verona. It's the top coat, and is meant to go over a base coat. Well, I didn't know that, and just bought the top coat. It has a LOT of what I think is copper powder mixed in the paint, and looks especially good when painted on black paper I later found out.

On this painting, which is on a wood panel, it has a lot of subtle metallic sheen that the camera cannot pick up. The central squared off spiral is hammered copper wire.
