A few days ago I shared on my Facebook page that I was up to something with some very strange tools! Sometimes I take a break from my usual art to do some experimenting. This was extra fun! Here is what I doing! I thought you might like to see my process for making an Acrylic Paint Pour.
This is the first time I used have every used Floetrol for an Acrylic Paint Pour. In this video (my first every how to… I did a swipe, a feather string pull and a flip cup at the end. It was my first time getting real cells and I think the results are AMAZING!!! Here is the recipe I used for this video. Items needed: Floetrol for latex paint, acrylic paint (I used Liquitex Basics), water, rubbing alcohol and silicone oil (treadmill lubricant). I mixed my paint with the Floetrol before adding other products to prevent changes in the structure of the acrylics. I used 2 parts Floetrol to 1 part paint, 1 part water and 1 part alcohol (I used a 1 ounce measure), then added 2-3 drops of silicon. To get larger cells you do not stir the silicon when you add it to the paint. Once paint was applied to the canvas I used a heat source to bring out some cells and pop the bubbles in the paint. In a few days I will cover the pours with some resin.
