Learn how to make beautiful paintings that look like ice using acrylic paint and plastic wrap. I use these paintings on paper for greeting cards, collage and all kinds of other crafts too.
I love observing the changes in nature during each season and am making a conscious effort to make my art lessons tie in with nature. When the creek in my neighborhood ices over I usually head out to get some photos as inspiration for my artwork. This technique of using saran wrap to make textures is nothing new but I love the way these paintings on paper turn out.
Watch the making of my painting Ice Ice Baby to see the plastic wrap technique in action.
