The COVID-19 situation has been a frustrating time for all of us. And with the rainy season already upon us, things will get even gloomier than usual. As a way to cope with these trying times, people have been reconnecting with old hobbies and getting in touch with their creative sides—like painting! There are so many media to choose from, as well: from your reliable, old paper, to your concrete wall. People also paint on furniture, clothes, and even industrial material, as well. Some of those materials are metallic panels, fiberglass, and acrylic sheets.

Painting on acrylic sheets is not exactly new, but it has steadily gained mainstream popularity over the years. And it’s no wonder, since acrylic is a lightweight and durable material that will last you a very long time. It’s also affordable to source, allowing you to relieve some pressure on your wallet, as painting can be an expensive hobby. The transparency of acrylic sheets also provides a see-through aesthetic for your art project, and its versatility means you can do anything you want with it. From painted acrylic wall mounts to personalized gifts; the possibilities are limitless.

Times are tough right now, making it more important than ever to give ourselves a well-deserved break. Fight the gloom and doom by embracing your creative side and unleashing your inner artist. You’ll even have something pretty to show off in the end, too!
