All about Paint Pours

Paint pours are when you use 2-8 colors to pour paint on a canvas makes cute designs.

Swipe technique where you put a base like white and then put your colors in a line across the middle in layers then take a piece of cardboard to swipe from the middle to the edges in lines/columns. Then you can tilt and turn the canvas to spread the paint. You can pour excess paint on edges that are dry to help the paint to move along. You will see a lot of cells and a line in the middle of the canvas. Make sure you get the edges! To get a lot of cells you can mix white or black with water/floetrol and thin it down.

More swiping techniques are to first pouring puddles over the canvas then pour a white line across the top and swipe down. The large white areas you can play in by adding drops of colors and blowing (ex. With a straw). You can use playing cards, paper, paper towels, or cardboard to swipe.

Layering technique is when you pour a line or squiggly line of paint across the canvas and then put white on top then either tilt and turn or swipe it.

 When pouring you usually start with a white base and pour on canvas then you can use a blow dryer to spread the paint. Then instead of layering paint into a cup you can pour directly on the canvas and layer that way. You can make circles or lines. Using white paint to act as a medium to move paint.

When starting first you need to mix your paints with floetrol 1:1. Then you can add a little water to make a warmed honey consistency. Then when making your cups start with white then color then white etc. Use a small cup for your pour to get cells. Always prep canvas with the titanium white to help paint slide. Then flip the cup on the canvas and wait a minute for cells to form. Slowly remove the cup. Let the paint sit for another minute and then remove any bubbles you see. Tilt and turn canvas to spread. To get more cells you can also optionally use silicone.

Advanced techniques are to paint the canvas a color of your choice then coat it with floetrol and water to keep the color. Then pour on you paints into a 8 figure instead of a puddle.

You can also use a turn table, spinner, or cake turn table to spin the pour.

You can also find your own technique and experiment with pouring sliding, splattering combined.

Paints to use are flow acrylics or basic acrylics. For silicone you can use spot on treadmill lubricant or OGX coconut oil serum.

For pours other things you can use are applicator bottles, funnels, etc.
