The technique used for this painting is to combine acrylic water based and metallic paints with silicon oil and a flow effects medium which are then poured onto the canvas and allowed to run into each other. Heat from a blowtorch (don't try this at home kids) is then applied to dry the paints quickly before they mix completely. Doing this also causes thicker paint to crack and wrinkle so giving the work texture. Finally two coats of varnish to protect it and leave a subtle sheen. Due to the paint being allowed to run onto the sides of the canvas it can be hung unframed. It is signed Paul C in the bottom left hand corner but written in such a way that it reads the same whichever way round the painting is hung.
