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,
