Fluid Acrylic Direct Pour Abstract Painting Experiment Artist Loft Paint...

It is fun to just pour paint just to see what happens! 

This experiment is with Artist Loft acrylic paint and Liquitex Pouring Medium. Red, White and Blue for the Summer Independence Day Celebrations in the USA. 

You can do this with any color combinations that make you happy! Just remember that colors that are opposite on the color wheel like Orange and Blue, Green and Red and Purple and Yellow will all go murky or grey when they are mixed too much with each other. They are complimentary colors that make each one look amazing side by side but will mute each other if mixed together. 

Part of playing with colors is learning what mixes well and how far you can push the colors before they walk over the wall to the land of mud!

This painting was done on a 5"x 7" canvas panel. I like to experiment on smaller panels so I don't have to mix up too much paint. :) It is more economical for supplies and for storage space. :)

The Paints:
Artist Loft Acrylic Paint Phthalo Blue, Brilliant Magenta, White. All were mixed with Liquitex Pouring Medium in a ratio of 2 parts pouring medium to 1 part paint. Each color in their own little cup. 

I pour layered puddles directly on the panel and right before I tip the canvas I drag my finger through the paint to see what happens! That's a trick I picked up from MelyD.Artist another fluid acrylic Artist on YouTube.

There's no silicon oil or torching in my 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 down the line 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. 

I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.
