Flow Art, aka Paint Pouring, is an easy and fun project. You Tube is filled with tutorials and various ideas on how to create Paint Pour Projects. Here is a basic pour on canvas with instruction on how to create your own:
Mix acrylic paint with 20% glue or Floetral and water. The consistency should be a little thinner than cake batter.
A few drops of silicone is added to two of the colors to create “cells,” the round dots of color.
Layer paints, one color at a time.
For a 12′ x 12′ canvas, I use about 10 ounces of paint.
For this project, I use a 12″ x 12″ canvas that has a light coat of mint green acrylic paint.
Use push pins at the corners to allow paint to drain off the edges without sticking to the drying surface.
Place canvas on top of cup.
Flip canvas so that cup is upside down. Allow to to sit for 30 seconds, or so.
I like to use a box to hold my canvas for initial pour.
Place canvas on top of box.
Lift cup to reveal your paint pour.
Here is the Flow Art. Tilt your canvas to spread paint, allowing paint to cover the edge.
Voila! Paintings take at least 24 hours to dry.
