Adventures in Paint Pouring

For the longest time I have wanted to try Acrylic Paint Pouring.  I have been watching youtube tutorials for months, but not been brave enough to take the plunge.

Well today I finally stopped procrastinating and got my paint on.

I just did what is called a basic flip cup pour, where you layer the paints in a cup and then flip it onto the canvas.

The only thing I added to the paint was Decoarts Pouring Medium.  I have read and seen loads of info on adding silicon to get cells (which is the little lace like holes that appear), but I thought I would keep it simple for a first go and yay I do have some cells.

I used 4 colours in my pour all cheap acrylic paints from Hobbycraft.

Dark Green
Bahama Blue
Pearl White
Lime Green

I can see this being very addictive, it is so much fun, waiting to see what appears as you turn and lean the canvas, I think this looks a little under the Ocean like.

International Art & Soul - Marine/Ocean/sea
