Resource list for workshop participants

Shadow Galaxy 18x18 sold

This painting was inspired by a Hubble telescope image. It is acrylic on canvas with glass spheres embedded into the surface. A great couple I met in Santa Fe added it to their collection. 

I recently returned from southern CA where I taught three workshops at Create. In one workshop we worked on Plexiglass, painting on both sides. I am going to do another painting inspired by astronomy but I am painting it on three levels of Plexiglas. Look for it next month.

I promised the workshop participants some links for resources so here they are.

Water slide decals-

Cast acrylic can be found at hardware stores, scraps may be found at frame shops and auto and home window replacement shops carry it. For specialized acrylic sheets-
