Today we will discuss how to do acrylic pouring for beginners step by step.
You can get it done in 30 mins or less, instead of working on something for daysss….
Supplies to get you Started:
- Pouring Medium: Beyond water, a good pouring medium is key!
- Liquitex Professional Pouring Medium – helps to create even puddles, poured sheets and flowing applications of colour.
- If you are after a cheaper alternative, try: GAC 800 – sometimes crazing may appear and may dry not clear, so not great to use as top coat.
- Isopropyl alcohol – for creating circular effect.
Alright, all supplies ready? The workspace is ready? Let’s start pouring!
We will start with 4 basic techniques not to overwhelm you.
1. Straight /Puddle pour:
2. Dirty Pour:
It is a very fun acrylic pouring technique for beginners. All you need to do is to place all of your paints in 1 cup prior to being poured across the surface.
Make sure the paint is not too thin, because the paint will mix inside the cup providing muddy results. For the wash pours it won’t work well because the colors are quite thin.
4. Funnel Pour:
Another fun and beginner friendly technique you can try.
At the end you will have a professional looking piece that you can hang at home!
