I had a student many years back that worked on plexi. 20 years later the
acrylic paint is still holding. If you use Keith's "etching" technique, the
paint will hold even better. Paint on the back of the plexi. Give a great
effect from the other side. Takes a big of doing, but I have seen people
cut the protective paper away, paint, cut more, paint, cut more, paint, etc.
until they had a finished piece to ve viewed from the reverse side (unpainted)
side of the plexi. Memory suggests a book by Chicago sculptor Jack Burnham
called ? Beyond Modern Sculpture ? He uses light and it ?might? help.
