What is it?

In visual art, mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium has been employed.

When creating a painted or photographed work using mixed media care is taken to allow enough drying time between the layers to ensure the final work will have structural integrity. If many different media are used it is equally important to choose a sturdy foundation upon which the different layers are imposed.

Mixed media art, a visual art, is distinguished from multimedia art which combines visual art with non-visual elements, such as recorded sound, literature, drama, dance, motion graphics, music, or interactivity. (Wikipedia, 2018).
