Instructables Creative Use of House Paint Contest

It’s the slowest part of the slowest summer month so we’re posting this for fun and prizes! Ever since Jackson Pollock began dribbling and dripping house paint across his canvases, and perhaps even before, artists have used commercial house paint products in innovative ways. So when I read that Instructables had paired up with the Olympic paint company to offer a contest with prizes, I knew right away that there must be an artist out there to win this contest.
