Acrylic Pouring is fluid painting technique which creates surfaces and textures through the pouring of liquid acrylic paints onto canvas and distributing them by tilting the painting surface. Choice of colour, medium and additives can create a multitude of different effects.This workshop is designed to give you the tools to do pours successfully during and after the workshop. You will learn essential vocabulary and create surfaces using specific pours you can build on.
In this workshop you will do five hands-on pours and surprise yourself over and over. We will use additives, create various sizes and kinds of cells, swirls, and rings, and we will experiment with different paints including metallics. You will love the process and the results.
