Pouring is fascinating and unique
Acrylic Pouring is an ancient color technique that has recently been rediscovered for new fascinating color objects.
Pouring describes what this technique is all about: through arbitrary or involuntary pouring of liquid acrylic paint to use emerging color effects for an acrylic painting. This experimental design with acrylic paint is fascinating. In combination with other painting and design techniques, many unique works of art or color surfaces succeed.
The new color hobby, also called Acrylic Pouring, is experimental designing with brilliant acrylic colors.
Why is Acrylic Pouring also called Fluid Painting?
By adding pouring medium, the creamy consistency of high-quality acrylic paint becomes more fluid without limiting color brilliance or destroying the paint's color structure. The medium is stirred into acrylic paint (hence Acrylic Pouring) until it is easy to pour.
How does Acrylic Pouring work?
The paint is always poured alternately with a complementary color onto a stretcher or other painting surface. Therefore one speaks of acrylic pouring. If a drop of silicone oil is added to the mixed paint at the end, great new color effects (bubble formation) are created.
