Pouring Art

Hey guys!  Lately, I’ve noticed a lot of people making really cool abstract-looking poured pieces, so I decided to try it for myself!  Keep reading to find out how you can make your own:

  1. Acrylic

  2. Water or Floetrol

  3. Glue

  4. Silicone (optional)

Mix the materials above in a cup, using equal parts water/floetrol, acrylic, and glue, adding a couple drops of the silicone to create the little bubbles or “cells” on the canvas.  If you have different colors, first mix them in different cups and then you can choose to either pour them separately or put them into one cup.  Then, you can take a blank canvas or one that already has a base color painted onto it, and pour the paint onto it.  You can do this by either pouring the paint without the cup touching the canvas or you can place the cup upside down on the canvas and lift it up.  Either way, you’ll end up with a puddle of the paint on the canvas that you can tilt around to get the pattern you desire.  Once you let it dry, you can coat it in a layer of varnish and you’re done!
