Using Pebeo Acrylic Paint
Paint on the acrylic paint reasonably thick so it just covers the cd. But not too thick.
Use a smooth bristled brush to get a smoother surface
Choose whatever colours you want
using the blunt end of a large needle I began scratching off the paint to reveal the shiny mirror like surface of the CD/ DVD
Search online for different patterns, pictures that you could use
They reflect the light and look very sparkley and pretty
Finished and how effective
Pink paint! You can draw your design over the paint, it works really well and makes it a lot easier. You can even sketch out designs for the kids to do
With this one the paint came off a little rougher but is most effective for this design so I went with it.
I trialed two Paint colours together, Pink and Purple. Its pretty and opens up another whole world of options for this project.
Gems can be added to dress up your creations
adding pink purple and white Gems
I had fun creating these pretty little works of art. They can be used as coffee coasters, glittering Mobiles, or wall hangings. My daughter has claimed the pink ones for her wall.
