Title "Swiped Acrylics" painted CDs
Description I use CDs as the 'canvas' when I teach folks how to do "Swiped Acrylics" (which is a technique I derived from 'poured acrylics' last year). I teach small classes in my home in Davis, California.

"Swiped Acrylics" painted CDs

Last year I started with pouring, but was not satisfied. It used SO much paint, took forever to dry, and (most annoying) continued to change after I was done 'painting!

So I studied on the physics of it all and devised a variation that I call "Swiped Acrylics" which allows me to create the cells and lacing using much less paint. I began with abstracts and now do landscapes as well. I am making lots of art and I also teach this technique at my home in California.

Since swiping doesn't work very well on paper, I was thinking we could do a painted CD swap instead of ATCs. Would you be interested?
