Yes please, scratch those CDs

cd art

Check out these cool scratched CDs for Free Art Friday, Salem!


This is a fun, simple process that all ages would enjoy and uses any old CDs you have laying around. Simply brush two coats of craft paint on the shinny side of a CD (waiting for it to dry between coats). Then take a sharp tool (we used screws with tape for a cushion for our fingers and dental tools too) to etch off the paint, revealing the shinny under coat of the CD.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can draw out your design with pencil before scratching or simply scratch free form. You can add a varnish to seal them and use for coasters or hang them from tree limbs, in a window, or up on the wall to enjoy. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We’ll leave these out this Friday for all of you Free Art Friday seekers. Enjoy! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
