How to paint onto Acrylic

Hello everyone, welcome to my second piece for this month's challenge over at Country View Crafts,which is Wings and Things. Today I'm sharing an acrylic Butterfly Stack with easy tips on painting on acrylic.

The stack - That's Crafty has 4 layers but I only used . Th last piece is Mdf board which I covered in Multi Matte Medium - 13Arts and Dutch Gold Leaf, which comes in sheet form. I've actually had this about 10 years. I put it away safe, and then forget where I've put it, I've done that three time to my knowledge. Lol. Anyway I know where it is now.

I left it quite crinkled as I liked the look but with smoothing you can get it crinkle free.
On one piece of acrylic I stamped the tiny flower from Beautiful You - Rubber Dance. I coloured it with the chalk pens from Jane Davenport.

Stamp one side then paint on the other, you can then see what bits you missed as above, I did go back and correct them but forgot to take another photo.

On the last piece of acrylic I stamped the large flower from Power Flower - Rubber Dance randomly over the shape.

I used Fresco Acrylic -Paper Artsy to paint the flowers again on the backside. Once dry I used the same Gell Medium on the pieces 
To join them together. They do come with four screws and predrilled holes, but I want to use the top two to hang it and the bottom two I will add studs.

All the stamps used are from Rubber Dance designed by me, and you will soon be able to buy them from Country View Crafts.
Take care
