Collage and Paint on Plexi

Lynn Whipple ( Year of the Spark, Lesson 3 ) shared her experience of collage and reverse oil painting on Plexiglas®.

I used acrylic paint instead of oils mainly because acrylics dry quickly.  Painting on the reverse side is a slow process because there is a lot of turning back to front to check how the painting is progressing.

Having completed one of these acrylic panels I have to say that this technique is very messy - at least the way I do it - which gave me another reason to be happy that I chose acrylics.  Cleanup is much faster than with oils.

I like the technique a lot...messiness notwithstanding :-)
