How to use Poured Fluid Acrylic Skins to make a Painted Pendant

This was so much fun! I love the tiny worlds we can find in the fluid acrylic skins. These skins that are made from leftover paints and waste paints, Recycled Paint at it's most surprising! Even more surprising was that this tree was painted in using a toothpick! 

This time we are making a Tropical Sunset - I show How to use Poured Fluid Acrylic Skins to make a Pendant necklace. It is so easy and fun!

Materials:

I show you step by step how to make these fun inchies into wonderfully easy pieces of jewelry!

By peeling the paint off the freezer paper and using scissors to trim the skins to the right size you can glue it all up and have a fantastic piece of art to wear any time!

Materials:
Flat Toothpicks
Scissors
Clear Gloss adhesive for Jewelry (I used Lilly D's Glaze Gloss Cabochon Glue - https://www.lillyds.com/) Any thing that dries smooth and crystal clear will work!
1 inch square Jewelry blanks - (I got mine on Amazon)
1 inch square 25mmx25mm Clear Glass Dome Cabochons (I got mine at Amazon) 
Black Satin Necklace Cord with lobster clasp (I got mine on Amazon)

The Acrylic Skin! Was made with Leftover Paints - Sorry no recipe!
Golden GAC-800, 
Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints and Golden High Flow Acrylic Paints - Primary Magenta, Primary Blue, Primary Yellow, Phthalo Blue, Dioxazine Purple, Titanium White, Carbon Black.

There's no silicon oil or torching in our projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of heating the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. I'm also concerned with the possible issues in time with the paint not forming a good bond with the surface because of the oils preventing proper adhesion.

We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful, but there can be consequences we don't know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. :) 

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my creative projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.

Fluid Acrylic Pour and Dip Painting is Oddly Satisfying Paint Recipes in...

What can I say? Fluid Acrylic Pour and Dip Painting - It is mesmerizing, relaxing, oddly satisfying and so much fun to dip card stock into puddles of paint and pull up beautiful unexpected imagery. I love the variety of a garden and the wonderful possibilities that they hold!  Then to have the paint skin on a clear piece of hard plastic that had a doodled flower design on it just adds to the creative possibilities!


There's even a mishap that totally came out of left field for me and I show you how I recovered from that too! We can't always have things go smoothly. Sometimes I just have to share those crazy things that happen. :)

Materials:
Clear plastic from a picture frame cut to 5x6 inches-- 

I Doodled  a sweet little garden using a Sharpie Permanent Marking Pen. The intention was to have it end up like a faux stained glass translucent sun catcher. I think I succeeded too. :)

Cut pieces of 80 lb colored card stock 3"x3.75"

Paints and their Recipes (No Water, No Silicon)

Golden Fluid Acrylic Primary Cyan 20 drops in to cup with 20 grams of Liquitex Pouring Medium

Apple Barrel - Caterpillar Green, Pumpkin Orange 2 grams Paint and Liquitex Pouring Medium 20 grams.

Pebeo Studio Acrylic Iridescent Red/Orange, Red/Blue 5 grams Paint mixed with Liquitex Pouring Medium 20 grams.

Pebeo Studio Acrylic Iridescent Green/Blue 5 grams paint mixed with 20 grams Floetrol for Latex paint.

Artist Loft Flow White 5 grams paint mixed with 20 grams Floetrol for Latex Paint.

Decoart Crafter's Acrylic Grape Taffy 10 grams mixed with Golden GAC-800 (Golden's version of Pouring Medium) 30 grams

There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I am concerned about the longevity of the art work and about the possible long term side effects of burning the acrylic paints and any additives that the materials they are made from. 

We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful but there can be consequences we don't know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. :)

Easy 2 Cup Dirty Poured Acrylic Landscape using House Paint Recipe in th...

Summer Vacation continues and I'm getting ready for the Eclipse in August 2017!

  Right now I have figured out how to do the rolling high desert of Eastern Oregon using Behr Premium Plus Ultra interior house paint in a 2 cup Dirty Pour. The Recipe is in the description below.


Now, I need to figure out how the dark sky of the eclipse and landscape will work together. l get to see the totality of the Eclipse as I'll be in the middle of the path! I'm so excited! I want to get the eclipse with the diamond ring effect and I think I'll have it all figured out before too long!

There will be a few more poured landscape paintings as I work out how to capture an eclipse in flowing paint!! I'm close to having it all figured out. 
For now I  have a great little landscape to share with you all! 

In this Fluid Acrylic Painting experiment I'm using only Behr Premium Plus Interior House Paint mixed only with Liquitex Pouring Medium.  (I'm not sponsored by anyone for this video)

There's some Dirty Cup pouring, Direct to Canvas Pouring, and some Swiping with a craft stick.

This time I used a little 4 inch x 4 inc gallery wrapped pre-gessoed stretched canvas and really you could do this on a board from the hardware store too! I just didn't happen to have one late at night when I was recording the video. LOL!

Materials:
Craft Sticks (for stirring and swiping)
A Scale or measuring spoons that are just for the craft room--
small cups to mix up the paint
Acrylic Paint ( Dark Blue, Bright Yellow,  Bright White and Medium Green) I used Behr Premium Plus Ultra in these colors: Majestic Blue, Yellow Grove, Nano White and Banana Leaf)

Liquitex Pouring Medium- It can be expensive and if you have an alternative medium you like--start with my recipe and substitute your choice of alternative mediums and then experiment until it works for you. :)

Recipe for All the Colors is the same ratio of 1:1 -- I used 20 grams Paint mixed with 20 grams Liquitex Pouring Medium. I did NOT add any water or Silicon oil to any of the paints. 

There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I am concerned about the longevity of the art work and about the possible long term side effects of heating the acrylic paints and any additives that the materials they are made from.

Sunset Starry Night Sky at the Beach Fluid Acrylic Painting House Paint ...

It's Summer Vacation (for me) and I'm going to the Beach. 



I love the Sunset Night Sky! It is so peaceful at the beach, when the birds have calmed down for the night and the saves are rolling in and lapping at the rocks on the shore.




In this Fluid Acrylic Painting experiment I'm using only Behr Premium Plus Interior House Paint mixed only with Floetrol as the pouring medium. A real Hardware store challenge . (I'm not sponsored by anyone for this video)
There's some Dirty Cup pouring, Direct to Canvas Pouring, and some Swiping with a craft stick. The only actual Art Material was a 10 inch by 10 inch pre gessoed stretched canvas and really you could do this on a board from the hardware store too! I just didn't happen to have one late at night when I was recording the video. LOL!
Materials:
Craft Sticks (for stirring and swiping)
small cups to mix up the paint
Acrylic Paint ( Dark Blue, Dark Purple, Bright Yellow, Orange Red, Bright White and Dark Brown) I used Behr Premium Plus Ultra in these colors: Majestic Blue, Virtual Violet, Cherry Red, Yellow Grove, Nano White and Rave Raisin)

Flood Floetrol (I used this as the pouring medium- It is safe to use when you follow the directions on the packaging. Remember that the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product says don't Heat it as it can emit harmful fumes if heated- (Section 2 )click link for more safety information http://bit.ly/2szggeo

Recipe for All the Colors is the same-- 1:1 20 grams Paint to 20 grams Floetrol. I did NOT add any water or Silicon oil to any of the paints.

There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I am concerned about the longevity of the art work and about the possible long term side effects of burning the acrylic paints and any additives that the materials they are made from.
