Gorgeous VIOLET

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

TURQUOISE + GOLD Dutch Pour | Fluid Art Tutorial

Today I will share some of my best must-know Acrylic Pouring Tips + show you how to create GORGEOUS Violet Bloom or maybe even open a door to another dimension? Playing with a NEW blow dryer! In this acrylic pour painting tutorial, I share a lot of tips and tricks! Hope you’ll find them helpful 😉 


This time I’m working on a really beautiful and rich dark blue-violet base. 

So as always for the dutch pour all of my colors are mixed with water only. There is no pouring medium. And today I’m working on 16 by 16 cradled wood panel. To cover this size of panel or canvas I need approximately nine ounces of paint all together.

Acrylic Pouring RECIPE used for today’s flow art painting:​

Acrylic paint is mixed with water only to a fluid consistency. I add approximately 30-50% of water to my colors. There is no exact % or proportion because this ratio depends on initial paint viscosity, which significantly varies from brand to brand and even from color to color.

So this is just a rough number because it varies depending on the consistency of your paint and the technique that you’re going to do. So, here I have eight ounces of this violet color. And I’m leaving one ounce for colors that are going to be in the puddle for the dutch pour blowout.

I think this painting turned out really cool. I love this extra bright splash of color. There is definitely a lot of gold. So all this is mostly gold and just a little bit of yellow in a few areas. But on such a dark violet background it totally works! And I like that all cells in the center are so different in size, different shapes, different colors. 


I think it gives this area a lot of life and beauty. And notice how all the colors remained really vibrant and saturated? I also really like the areas where green-blue, the iridescent green-blue blends into violet. These colors totally work terrific together. Working with just paint and water and fluid consistency in fluid painting you can achieve cool lacing effects and some amazing density cells! I hope you enjoyed the process and all the acrylic pouring tips and tricks! 💙 Happy creating!
