Today was play day.  I've been following some painters on Facebook who paint on copper panels (yes, real copper.)  I love the luminance that they get.  At least one of the artists has painted using acrylic copper. That was in my budget so I decided to order some and try it out.  It arrived yesterday.  I primed some panels last night and then just played with applying the paint today.

I really like how they look in person.  The copper doesn't show off too much in the photo, but in person if they are lit they really shimmer. Nice.

Two paintings today...that makes up for at least one of the days I pooped out.

Nice paintings! I like the idea of painting on the acrylic copper and I might just have to give that a try.
