'super' paint skins

Paint skins are those intriguing films of dried up acrylic paint that we who work in acrylic all seem to collect. I have a pile of them about an inch thick that I've stuck together, that I have plans for 'one day'.

A project or two ago I did a casting project with the kids I teach, and it got me thinking, what if I poured acrylic into the mould?

I've made the mould from plasticine, and filled it with coloured moulding paste, which in hindsight may not have been the best choice, not fluid enough, but we'll see. That's what experimentation is all about! I'll let you know in a day or two-when it dries- how it turned out.

Tonight is the opening for the square foot show at the Art Exchange in Wortley Village in London. It should be an interesting show, I hope to see you there- 7:30 pm.
