Acrylic Paint Pour Tutorial
Acrylic pouring is an awesome craft! Fun for all ages, the process is rather therapeutic and rewarding. You do not have to be a wildly creative human to get beautiful results. Let's jump in.
Mold Design Some basic materials consist of craft store bought acrylic paints, pouring medium, gesso, canvas or something made from plaster of paris and optional personal protective gear such as, latex gloves and those "shop clothes" that you don't feel terrible about getting paint on.
Prepping for a Pour While fluid acrylics have a high viscosity straight from the container, you may want to thicken or thin out the consistency of the paint. What you will add depends on whether you are shooting for a coat finish, where the finished pour has even layers of color, or maybe a washed finish, where the final product looks like layers or rings of color.
