Reverse Painting on Plastic

This was one of my favourite pieces that I really enjoyed doing and had no plans of selling.
It found a home with a special lady, now in Chicago (yoo hoo! hope you are enjoying your new life-you are missed).

About the Painting

It is a mixture of collage (using modge podge), and acrylic paint on a lucite shelf I got from a Liquidation Outlet in Dayton Ohio. They were selling boxes of these for 25 cents apiece. Of course I went mad and bought a gazillion and who knows if I will ever use them all LOL!

Wow, I can't even begin to imagine how dificult it is to do a reverse painting. Yours are great.

Hiay undaunted, it takes practice lol, but is sure is fun. I love doing the finger painting and smudging part.

Thanks Linda, michellle.

Oh my dee, that is really cool, thanks :)

connie, I agree about the Mod Podge. Oh dear hansel is smitten with the art obsession, isn't it wonderful :)

Margot Potter said...

Oh, wow, cool! I want some of those!

Someday maybe I'll have time to make paintings instead of craft projects...ya think?!


Lana Gramlich said...

An intriguing piece of work. :) Do you have problems with acrylic paint peeling from or scratching off of the lucite? I've never found acrylic paint to be very effective on a smooth surface, personally. Just wondering about your experience/thoughts...

JafaBrit's Art said...

lana, I haven't had that problem, usually because I seal the back after I have painted them, or the back is protected when mounted into a box frame. I suppose if I was to paint on the front of the plastic it would be a problem since its exposed. Are you talking about paint ON plastic or doing reverse painting?

Very cool, I would like to learn to paint in this way. I can see why you would have wanted to keep it, it's got a big voice. :) I really like the collage and paint together, I don't think I have ever seen a reverse done in this way, of course it would be you to show it to me, of course!
