Free-Flowing Fluid Art.
This past weekend, I experimented with another form of art using an acrylic pouring method to create these abstract pieces.
These are my first efforts, and there is so much more you can do with this technique using different tools and surfaces and colors. I’m longing to find time to try again and create “cells” in the pour by adding oily products to the paint and pouring medium.
The main objective is to create a pouring texture of paint using an additive like Floetrol (used by house painters to improve performance and reduce brush marks as well as allow latex paint to spray like oil-based paint, and ultimately to save money by “stretching” the paint). You can also purchase pouring medium products from many acrylic paint companies like Golden or Liquitex. Some people use Elmer’s glue! Water will even do the trick (though may dilute the paint a bit more).
These are done on artist quality canvases and sprayed with a gloss varnish to seal the paint and make them shine.
What a joy to let loose and create magical mysteries.
Wishing you a day ahead that is sprinkled with magic and mystery.
Cheers & Hugs,
