204 – CD Art Mandala

CD Art Mandala by Swapnal

One of my favorite “DIY” sites, Instructables, had this creative idea posted for repurposing old CDs by Swapnal entitled “CD Art“.

I love the mixed use of symmetry and asymmetry in her design. On the post, she presents other examples to give us plenty of ideas from which to be inspired.

I’m intrigued by this project especially since I own lots of old CDs and DVDs that could use some better purpose than taking up valuable real estate in my home…they instead could be adorning my walls.

The process:  essentially you paint the CD black and then scrape away the design so that the shiny part shows through…like reverse painting.

Time to pull out those old CDs…

Happy Coloring!
