On this page are pictures of Spin Art I made many years ago. Spin art is made by placing paint on a piece of cardboard attached to a platform that can be spun by a motor. The paint can be dropped on while the platform is spinning, or beforehand. A containing cylindrical wall catches the paint thrown off, but the patterns created on the cardboard are hard to predict ahead of time. This was a popular toy at one time, but I made my own machines for making spin art, some quite large. These are pictures of the smaller ones I made, ranging from 1" square to 5"x8". A cousin of mine recently reminded me of this art I had experimented with as a teenager, and that gave me the idea of posting photographs of the results, which I had saved in an album. In fact, I still have the Spin Art machine I used to make these. I have grouped them in bunches of ten pictures, but some photos show several spin art works.
