What are Acrylic Skins? How can you use them to create an artwork that is completely unique?

An Acrylic Skin is a dry acrylic film that can be made of paint, medium or a combination of paint and medium, that is not attached to any substrate.

Making and collaging your own acrylic skins offers a flexibility in designing your paintings that is truly freeing.

The process of layering Acrylic Skins as collage elements is simple and fun, yet offers endless creative possibilities.

Expand your bag of tricks and create seductive surfaces with texture, depth and rich colours.
