Hello, I have been lurking here for awhile and finally made an account so I could post.  Cheesy I've been working on some rasterbations this weekend and am really stuck on one of them.  Undecided I don't have a pic of the actual rastorbation yet but here is the image I made it from. (Yes I made myself a giant lava lamp, lol). I have a piece of plywood to mount it on with an extra 1" of plywood on each side. I'm pleased with the way the rasterbation turned out but now I just cannot decide how to finish the plywood. I was thinking I could just paint it with brushes and acrylic paint (maybe red?), maybe just stain the wood, paint on some kind of patterned border, or decoupage something on? I have some really cool 60's ish wallpaper scraps but I'm afraid it will look too busy if I have a big pattern for a border. ack, help?



also, I wasn't sure if this was the right forum?

Fabric?  Hmm... maybe it depends where you want to display it when you are done?  are you going to hang it or lean it?  whats the area/wall/decor where you want to put it?

I'm really digging the thought of fabric behind it Smiley

I'm planning to make a set of them and hang them in narrower wall spaces. We're painting the house a combination of green, orange, brown, and creme/white,  house still has a lot of the original interior from when it was built in 60s. Fabric does sound cool...would I just glue it to the border of the wood?

and thanks!  Cheesy

I think it would depend how thick or thin a fabric type you choose.  If it's thin enough, you could just do the border.  But if it's a thicker fabric, you might want to upholster the whole board, so it doesn't leave any funky lines/bumps on the edge of your rasterbation Smiley

I would imagine using a spray glue on both surfaces, letting them dry for a few moments, then joining them together.  It forms a pretty strong bond.  Cheesy

Maybe someone else could be better to comment on that portion though... my methods tend to be a bit less-than-traditional.  Tee hee!
