acrylic skin

I have tried to make an acrylic skin a number of times in the past.  I was never successful as I didn't have the right substrate.  Yesterday in a workshop at Sandra Spagnuolo's she provided a 6mm vapor barrier plastic.  It worked great.  The skin pealed off it in one whole piece.  It's possible that using a good quality acrylic paint on the first layer made that easier.  I used cheap acrylic paint for the last layers as you don't see them.  You just need them to build up thickness.
