Productive multi-smashing of acrylics

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.
Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories,
instead of theories to suit facts.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle

If you are going to smash paints, you might as well multi-task. So I smashed pages in the exacompta, a loose art journal background and an index card or three. For the exacompta pages, I actually started with a layer of peachy paint, then played around with the japanese brush I found at the craft store, with dry brushes of black paints on the first layer. When I started smashing, it sort of rubbed off some of the black dry brush marks which was a neat effect but I'm not sure I could replicate it!

Smashing is seriously messy. Use protection.
