Spin Art

Some painting methods are easier than others. This spin painting method is the easiest one that I know of; it’s incredibly easy to get good results with it, even for people who swear they have no artistic talent. Maybe you can’t draw a straight line, but I bet you will be able to paint lovely circles and spirals easily when you use this method to do it. There’s sound science behind this approach; centrifugal force does most of the work for you in this painting method. I hope you’ll give it a try!
