Exploring Acrylic Pouring

Yes, I meant it to rhyme!

I had fun today playing around with acrylic pouring.  I’ve been watching videos of it on Youtube for the last few days and decided I wanted to have a go.  Pretty happy with how it went, and think I may be doing this again real soon.

My favourite is the last one (excuse the bad photo, the lighting wasn’t good in the kitchen by the time I finished doing it).  It is true fire engine red, with tones of black, and I was so happy to see the cells form that large.

      Thanks Allie, that one is my second favourite so far, I really liked the colour combination.

    Wow … really, truly stunning. I do love that last one … the shapes are incredible. All of them are fantastically organic 😊

      So glad you liked them Osyth. Yes, the red is my favourite, the cells formed really nicely, and I love the simplicity of just the 2 colours. They are drying now and I can see that I probably did not pour on enough paint as I am starting to see the texture of the canvas underneath, but it is all a learning experience, and I am really really happy with how they turned out for my first attempt.

        That is nice place to be … so happy with the first go. Many happy experiments to come!

          Oh, I’ve done lots today, some worked (kind of) and some didn’t, but I had fun, and got a really lovely one at the last pour again today.

            My husband quotes an old colleague often who used to say ‘you must learn to know when enough is good enough’ … it seems to me that your paint is doing the job for you by giving consistently saving the best til last!!

                I know he is but I’m darned if I can practice the wisdom all the time!!!

                  I understand what you are saying. I also wonder why it is that non-wisdom is so attractive to us?

      Thanks WD, glad you liked that one, it’s my favourite (I may have said that!!!).

      I’m trying to get my “creative” working again Ruth 🙂 This is a good way to increase it. Thanks for your kind words.

    I like them all, but I’d have to go with #3 as my fave. I just really like the colors, even though the cells aren’t as distinct as the others…

      Hi Brian, I like some of the colours in that one, the Burnt Sienna made it look a bit earthy, but yes, there wasn’t much cell forming going on! Think this one is a mutant (I didn’t spray any silicone into it, nor get the mix/pour right) Still, practice makes perfect, and I did lots today too.

    Damn, I wish I was this creative. Really like the 3rd one, but the red is definitely my favourite. On a large canvas, both of these would take pride on my wall.

      I am working up to the bigger canvases – just got to make sure I get the technique right. I have drooled at so many Youtube videos of people doing this, it is so hypnotising to watch. I suffer from YSOAA) younger sister of an artist syndrome – but this is something anyone can do if they get the paint mix right -and cheap as to try at the start, and strangely soothing. 🙂 Well I am a world famous fluid artist I shall present you a HUGE canvas (P.S. you don’t want to be holding your breath for that) 😉

        Ooh, a signed Ceenoa artwork! Similarly, when I become a world famous authour (not sure why I can’t say that without laughing out loud) I too shall gift you with my first novel…in case you need something to burn on those cold nights. 😉

        Btw, I suffer from OYBMJOSAS. Older yet bitter mother jealous of son’s artistic skills.

          Laughing, these syndromes are nasty things! 🙂
          I shall look forward to the book – I have an A/C so won’t need to burn it 🙂

    The red one puts me in mind of science class, in a good way. Looks like a fun method to let your creativity run wild!

      It is, and there is a bit of science in the way the paint reacts to movement and colours.
