A Second Life for CDs
Snoderly, Kathleen
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n9 p19-21 May-Jun 2011
Cutting a few CDs apart with scissors, the author found that the process created somewhat brittle shards. As a result, she started to paint a few with acrylic, finding to her amazement that the paint gave the CDs a leathery, more manageable texture. Upon further experimentation, she found that if the CDs are painted somewhat translucently in places, they resemble stained glass. In this article, the author describes how to make stained-glass inspired art from discarded CDs. (Lists 1 online resource.)
