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. :)

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"

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. :)
