Make your mixed media art pop with a little fluorescent paint!
The Pebeo Studio fluorescent paint is so bright you may need to get your sunglasses out while using it 🙂
It’s richly pigmented, permanent, dries to a satin finish and cleans up with water and soap, making it a perfect mixed media acrylic!
This is a quality acrylic paint with a thick consistency that retains dimension, brushstrokes, and knife marks as you paint.
You can use it on paper, canvas, board, wood, metal, and most other surfaces.
100ml tubes that will last you a long time as you only need a tiny bit to add a BIG pop!

Mimi Bondi mixed media art tutorial using Pebeo Studio Acrylic Fluorescent Paint
This video was created a little while ago when I purchased my first tubes of fluorescent paints from Amazon. They cost a lot to ship but I just had to try them out…
The range comes in fluorescent yellow, fluorescent pink and fluorescent orange by the way. I also wanted a green so I got something that is not fluorescent but seemed very bright.
- Let’s start with a blank page in my Moleskine art journal and simply rubbed a few patches of fluo paint here and there (nothing fancy!). I can confirm they are very bright!!
- I then used my freshly hand carved stamps to create fun details with my StazOn Stone Gray Ink Pad (by the way, stamp carving is a fun and awesome skill to have for all mixed media artists as it allows you to express yourself even further! You can learn how to carve stamps too here and get your carving tools and carving material here)
- Lots of colours were then added as well as gesso blobs, then black paint through a chevron stencil.
- Now let’s do a little highlighting with a white pen (I recommend a fine tip white sharpie marker) then more fluorescent paint as a lot of it on the background had disappeared!
- I toned down my pages and gave them a grungy look by spreading white acrylic paint with a plastic card…
- Then I repeated earlier steps: stamping, highlights, more paint and stencils until I was happy
- I added final touches: uneven gold lines created by stamping my gold ink pad straight onto my pages and white dots with the eraser from a pencil 😉
- The cherry on the cake: a quote written in black ink over patches of gesso as I wanted the words to stand out from my busy background!
