Reference Library: Mixed media
'Mixed media', in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed.
When creating a painted or drawn work using mixed media it is important to choose the
layers carefully and allow enough drying time between the layers to insure the final work will have integrity. If many different media are used it is equally important to choose a sturdy foundation upon which the different layers are imposed. An old rule good to remember is "Fat over lean." In other words, don't start with oil paints. Plan to make them the final layer.
Mixed media can be integrated into video by using Final Cut Pro 5. Through color keying and compositing, a multimedia video can be created using different sources (i.e. painting, digital photography, video art, drawing).
