03.09.2018 : Acrylic Pour #1

in #art3 years ago (edited)

If you can believe this, this is the 2nd time I'm uploading the video.

Why? Apparently, even though I remember signing in, I wasn't. So here I am, seriously thinking if videos are the way to go seeing as it took 2 plus hours to upload an 800mb (8 minute) video yesterday and this so far has taken at least 30 minutes.

Is my mountains connection letting me down here?

That aside, I love how I can show you guys the process and you can watch the paint move and cells form. I also love how I don't have to take so many darn photos.

As simple as it looks, there is actually a lot of technique involved in acrylic pouring. Most of it is with the paint mixing itself but once you get that part done (I am still working on that!) you should be fine to move on to more complicated and adventurous techniques.

I saw someone do a pour and it ended up looking like flowers. Like wow!

I'm hoping to video day 3 of my free form geode this week. It's been way too cold and rainy here to be working with resin so I've had to settle with acrylics. Next week I'll be on Orgonite mode - Yay!

And with that I'm off to do today's pour as this one is still uploading, and I'll upload yesterday's second pour tonight.

I hope you're all having a great Tuesday!

I love acrylic pours. I remember when I first came upon acrylic clear gloss, I was so excited because the old type was so toxic and you need so much ventilation. I even did an entire show once of my printmaking on board with clear acrylic pour and acrylic ink abstractions added in. The stuff is so fun to use!

It's so much fun isn't it? I would love to see that show, sounds like next level stuff! I'm only a beginner and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'll be googling clear gloss :D

Is that a varnish or paint sealer? I usually use resin, not for painting, but Ive seen people do resin paintings with ink. They look amazing and definitely something I want to experiment with.
