Ice Painting 3

Ice paintings are one of my favorite rainy afternoon photography project. It’s easy to accomplish. First, freeze a container of water into ice. A disposable food container works great. Then, set up some lights or use natural light if it’s available. Slowly add your favorite colors of food coloring or acrylic paints and take macro shots of the results. You can also change the affect by using salt to create more texture.

    That is a cool idea. Too bad I don’t have a macro lens or I might try it this weekend. I love the shot. It feels like an abstract painting.
