We have all used CDs if we have worked on computers. But in the recent times, if you have discovered crates/boxes of unused CDs, either you can donate to the shops who still use them or you can use them to uplift your home-decor. Together, we generate tonnes of e-waste. How about making this small initiative to contribute less at your end. We at 'Repurposed Art Studio' will guide you to use your old CDs creatively.
Shiva - CD art work
CDs or compact discs are flat, round, optical storage medium used to store and retrieve a large amount of data or music through computer. When the CDs arrived, they made floppies obsolete. But gradually, even their days are numbered. When I bought my new laptop last year, it dint even have a CD drive. With the arrival of pen drives and increased portability of newer computers, storing data on CDs isn't worth anymore. So what will you do with all your old CDs? When I found them, I couldn't resist painting them. Here are 5 of my recent artworks without cutting or destroying its structure. It is majorly plastic and eventually an e-waste.
I have used acrylic colors to repurpose them into something decorative for my house and others as well. Prepare a base colour and just draw whatever you want. Its very easy.
