Default TLC792~Acrylic Pouring~04/27/2020

TLC792 Acrylic Pouring

I've been playing with acrylic paint and pouring media and made some real fun backgrounds, I hope you'll enjoy to get dirty, this takes a bit of time so I know your cards won't be in the gallery very quickly but I hope you'll give it a try and show me what you've done, if you have questions, I'll do my best to answer as quickly as possible.


Here we go:

First of all cover and protect your working place





You'll need acrylic paint, no matter the one you use, cheap one will do, if you've got pouring media that will be great if you don't, you can make it yourself with paint glue and water,you add a bit of this in each container with the paint.

I've used also acrylic pouring oil but that's not a must, maybe you want to try something else.

You can add glitter metallic paint and so on.



You can see how to work, you take some plastic or glass containers, the ones I've used are very old, we can't buy them anymore, but you can keep any containers, clean them and use them.

First I've put a bit of pouring media, then black acrylic paint, pink, green and finally I've added a bit of gold metallic.

The glossy photo paper or glossy card stock or backside from a block, is covered with white paint on the 4 edges just avoid a circle in the middle, that's where you'll empty your container.(picture 1)

You turn your container upside down but very quickly, and you move your paper to let the paint flow, it will go over the paper so I hope you've covered your working space, the paint which is falling will be used after.

So you've got one print which will take time to dry, and with other card stock you pick up the fallen paint mix.




You can make a Dutch pouring if you want to, there's no need for pouring media, just paint and water, I've made some , here's one:



I'll add a PDF in the thumbnails and some pictures, just mix and have fun

Here's a link to our TLC792 Acrylic Pouring gallery.
Here's my card:

I'm sorry in the post here above it isn't the Dutch Pouring, but the acrylic pouring on glossy photo paper.

Here's the

I read and tore out a feature on mini-pours using disposable shot glasses late last year, and bought the shot glasses which sat on my desk all through the Christmas holidays. And until St Patrick's weekend when, having been further inspired by pidgesmom's blog post (http://papervernissage.blogspot.com/...t-pouring.html) and buying pouring medium on my last visit to my sister before lockdown, I finally had a go. And then I didn't know what to do with the pieces I made. After 5 weeks I finally turned two of them into cards this weekend, l'll be along shortly...A UK company sells two paper pads with acrylic pour designs, and I felt I'd have just as much trouble using those. Just not "my"type of background, I guess.

Yes this is a little messy, and the drying time (for me, I did them on Yupo and they took about two days, the mini canvases dried faster) felt like forever, but I'd strongly encourage you to give it a go. It's great fun, and don't we all have plenty of time right now?

The big canvases one sees are amazing, but I did two little ATC size ones and was delighted with them. I'd recommend shot glasses as being a great size for anything up to an 8" square, and my experience was that the paint and medium needed to be much thinner than my first try.

TLC792 Seahorse Seen by Cook22



TLC792 Waterlily Fun by Cook22



My pieces (you can see them in the raw on my blog here: My Miscellany: A Mixed Bag) all made me think of aerial views of the sea. One of them made me think of Italy, except it's facing the wrong direction. I tried my dolphin and seahorse edger dies with them, but it didn't come together. Not sure why, maybe I just didn't want to cover up that much of my pours! It's taken from St. Patrick's weekend till this one to finally start making them into finished pieces - but doing the pour was great fun.

I couldn't sleep last night so did my pour at 1:30 this morning so it was dry when I finally woke up a 7:30 AM. Here's my late night results:

Loved the fun, experimental challenge, Anita. I used an acrylic glaze and this took over a week to dry. The paper wasn't very porous either, so live and learn.
