Dear Apartment Therapy,

I have done this to create work to put in my cottage. I like using Toni Grote http://artisttonigrote.blogspot.com/ as an inspiration. Creating art over found, ugly pieces = free art supplies/frames! I mix my paints with different mediums to create texturized workable acrylics. The texture helps hide the fact that I am creating over a piece. It looks like the above painting is using a heavy medium. When I am done, I add a few layers of Winsor and Newton finishing spray to amp up the gloss. This adds to the credibility. With a little creativity and time you have a great piece!

So wonderful! I want my basement to look this chic! I think you have inspired me to get painting. The orange and green are spectacular and bold.

They should have used a fast food wrapper instead of a plate! LOL.

I have used this idea in my classroom. We used white rain gutters to achieve the effect. Tip: don't use the cheaper gutters, they will bend under the weight.
