Pouring Acrylic Paint, my new obsession
I really like this fun method of playing with paint. I have a bunch of tube paints left over from when I taught classes at Michaels a couple of years ago, so I thought this might be a good way to use them up. I think I spent about $50 buying all the supplies I needed to do the process, to use up Free paint. LOL. But, it was very therapeutic. Now all I have to do is finish cleaning off the silicone slime that forms on top of the paintings, and varnish them. It will take awhile for them to dry as well. Here are my first Poured Acrylic Paintings. Yes, I am obsessed. I did all these in one day.
These are all small paintings, 2.5 x 3.5 inches to 5x7 being the largest.
Below are a few closeups of some of them, not great pictures yet, because these are still wet. I am afraid to move them much because they keep changing if you tilt them, and I am a real butterfingers, so accidents could happen.
Close up look at one of my favorites, only 2 colors, dioxazine purple and white
This is my really most favorite, and it is in a 6x6 Davinci Liquid Art Panel.
I think I need about 50 more of these panels from Jerry's Artarama.
Ready to hang after it is dry and varnished, and I add a hanger.
5x7 mat board - looking for a picture to put in this one.
I did a bit of dragging on this one, to make the little spires.
Tiny Canvas, would look great on a tiny easel.
Primary colors 1 - 5x7
Primary colors 2 - 5x7
Odd color mix? ACEO
Oh, and yesterday I did my very first one which is quite large, so I decided to do smaller ones from now on.
12 x 16 on canvas board - they usually name these, but I just call it blues and greens with a splash of magenta.
