I'm fascinated too - I haven't tried it, but Amber Hight has been posting her pics on Instagram and it's intriguing! I'd love to find someone here who's tried it!

I have done several pours. About a 50% success rate. Can I post some here? I would like to do some on yupo or heavy (300lb) watercolor paper for backgrounds

I'd love to see them Lori! I disappeared down a total acrylic pour rabbit hole on YouTube a couple of weeks back but managed to convince myself (for now at least!) that I really don't need another addiction!

Default Acrylic pouring

I have seen this done on Mixed media, but not for cards- it looks so beautiful!

I think it looks like alot of paint is used! $$$$$ I would be afraid to waste good paint on a bad looking background.


I wonder if it can be thinned down for stamping? Maybe not- bet the paint would mix if it were thinned down..... Thoughts?

There is a lot if waste. But l I make make own window cleaner, I use dryer balls instead of softener, pack my lunch and all that savings should go into retirement but it goes into craft supplies! I use craft paint. I use floetrol from the hardware store instead of pouring medium so there are ways to make it less expensive. It is messy fun. When the sun goes down I will post some pics.

here are a few from my pinterest board. these are on canvas but i would like to try on 300 pound water color so i can stamp, if the design lends itself to that.

This does look like fun! I think people use cheap acrylic craft paint. I think I would cut heavy cardstock to A2 size or slightly smaller so I could use the pours for card backgrounds as I have no use for wall art. My friend did some recently so I hope to try it out at her house soon. Love how the colors swirl together!

I wonder if there is a way to use something for a release on a stamp so you can stamp into the paint like you can with heated embossing powder?

If you use Archival ink maybe you can stamp on it. Maybe stamp a sentiment or image onto a piece of velum or acetate that you wrap around the the piece and adhere to the back so your pour still shows through.

arlenevita,

I have zero use for wall art. this is not even the style that is anywhere in my house! I have no idea what I am going to do with them!

Those are looking great Lori, I especially love the long, slim, bronze-toned one! There's something fabulously organic about the look, isn't there?

I wonder whether it would work to do a bigger piece on heavy card or watercolour paper and cut it up? I'm thinking that starting out with a small piece might not allow the patterns to develop as well.

Let us know how you get on if you try something for card making!

I thought about the larger sheet and then cut it up for that very reason but I wonder if the paint load would even make 300lb warpy. I guess there is only one way to find out.

I love watching pouring video's but but it is WAY too messy for me to actually try. I can feel my heart racing and my BP sky rocketing just thinking about it. At least watching those makes gel printing seem tame on the mess meter in comparison.


So post away with those pics and video's and I'll live vicariously through y'all.

I guess you could try the same trick as you would do for a watercolor piece - tape all four sides to a solid surface with painter's tape and see if that helps minimize warping. You'll get a narrow border where the tape was but if you're going to trim out in any case then that shouldn't matter too much.

Yupo could be interesting since it doesn't absorb moisture so I guess that should mean it doesn't warp even with a load of paint dumped on it.

yupo takes a while to dry, but you have to be super careful when you torch it. and it is harder to tilt to move paint.

the messy is the part i love. i love stamping, but not messy stamping. that makes my heart race, getting a smudge or not a good impression, especially when you have already put a lot of work into a card and then into the trash it goes. if a pour looks awful and 50% of the time it does, a handful of paper towel (ok two or three handfuls) and you can wipe a canvas clean.

Smile acrylic pouring

I am anxious to try this technique as well and got some of the stuff to try it and looked at info and postings about it online. But since it would be my first time, I am fearful to actually do it myself! As you have done it, can you share some tips and advice as well as pics? It looks like so much fun....thanx


Mary

I have never heard of this (and I'm not going to go look it up!) but your panels are wonderful. I especially love the brown one.

I just watched a youtube video of someone doing ATC pours! And she managed to spill her cup of mixed-colors paint but carried on after some cursing. LOL It does look fun!

Lori, which silicone do you get?


It seems like it would be fun to stamp on it and/or add die-cuts or sentiments stamped on CS. I was in a few short mixed media journal page workshops at an LSS and once we used acrylic paint and then stamped on top of it. Do you think this would be different due to the silicone?

you do need to remove the silicone to put a finish on the canvas. so far i blotted gently with alcohol and it worked. my silicone comes in a yellow bottle. drops not spray.

Thanks for the pics, your pieces are lovely.

It's always interesting to me to see how differently we crafters/artist react to various techniques. The muse either can't wait and is chanting in our head "lets do it" or she she runs away screaming "no, no, no!"

it makes me feel like an artist and that does not happen often. it really is just a crap shoot if it turns out, it is more science than art, but i love it.

Since making card background is a favorite, my muse says "yes, yes!" as long as it's all set up elsewhere and "we" would just show up and play. ; )

I do it in the basement. I cover my table with dollar store shower curtain. i have goodwill tray thingy that i cover in tinfoil. i should wear gloves but i do not. the shower curtain i just leave and reuse and the tinfoil i just ball up and throw away. it really is not so bad. i do wear an old apron because i tend to wipe my hands on myself.
