My eye has been caught by beautiful paintings, made when artists use the acrylic pouring technique. And WOW, they are gorgeous! For example, Emma Lindström’s paintings…
Here’s Emma worthing her magic .
So. I wanted to try. I researched and found out what tools I would need. I still don’t have everything.
You need lots and lots of acrylic paint. Then you need a medium to mix with your paint of you don’t buy the ready to pour kind. I used water for some, and GAC 800 medium gloss acrylic additive for some. To maje the gorgeous bubbles you can use bike brakes oil! I tried coconut oil (the liquid kind for hair) for the silicone. Hmm, then you should have a creme brulee burner to use the heat to bring out the bubbles, I don’t have that yet.
I used paint, oil, and water. Here’s my results so far… oh and metallic powered pigments. .
I’m super happy with how these turned out, I did most of them on ceramic tiles, and one on a 28×32″ canvas. I love love love to work big, but I’ll have to wait until I have gallons of paint for that! Let me know that you think, or if you have any advice or tips I’d love to hear them
Thanks for reading,
