Acrylic pouring

Comment Finished date started 2023-08-03 and ongoing
I have been wanting to try acrylic pouring for a while. This batch of paintings were done with (mostly) galeria paint, pebeo poring medium to start with and later Liquitex. Most colours have a drop of silicone of them. Media Acrylic
Canvas No brand
Size 20 x 20 cm (most of them)
Reference none

The set-up, all paints had been mixed with pouring medium. Some was also thinned with water and the black also have silicone.

Swiping with a palette knife & blowing on the paint with a straw

My first attempt, after pouring and when it is dried. The ground was made with swiping and the tree blowing. Also posted here.
The black had silicone in it and kept expanding as the paint was drying, so the tree became very abstract...

My second attempt, just using blowing

Third attempt using white

Fourth canvas, testing black again, but not filling it all with colour

Then I tried tree ring pouring, after I had streched the paint out over the canvas i torched it to remove bubbles

The colours i used                                                               and when they had been poured into the cup

Poured on the canvas in a circular motion                             and stretched out over the canvas and torched

And the same again, with other colours


This is what they look like when they dried

Then I tried to thin the paint a bit more, and NOW we are talking! I just thinned the same mixtures with water


And then I learned that it is important to let these dry flat... a lot of the paint slid of. This is how it dried.

Then I tried this

After that I tried using a glue mix instead of pouring medium, it looked great wet but dried pale

So I went back to pouring medium (Liquitex by now, I was out of Pebeo). I think I tested matte wall paint in the pink one.

And then this

And I tried to pour a flower, it has it's own page

Then I tried a couple on matt white housepaint
