Acrylic Mania!

I am in the middle of switching over to a new, higher powered computer, so, unfortunately there will be no hump-day post this week (I still am trying to get all of my software moved over, not to mention all of my hardware hooked up). But I have an exciting announcement!

I have received a ton of questions and comments regarding acrylic and acrylic album techniques. So, starting next hump day, I will beginning a month-long series of posts focused on acrylic and other clear material techniques. I am planning to discuss:

  • Where to buy acrylic albums and what shapes and sizes are available.
  • How to make your own acrylic albums.
  • Binding methods for acrylic albums.
  • Adhesive methods for clear surfaces.
  • Page layouts conducive to acrylic and clear pages.
  • Acrylic and other clear material specific techniques (paint, ink, rubons, etc. on clear surfaces).

At the end of the month long series, I will be posting a new acrylic album that I am currently working on!

I can't wait to hear more! I feel like I am just grazing the surface on what's possible with acrylic supplies. I bought some styrene at a craft store... do you know anything about using that?
