Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Amazing Acrylic Pouring ~ Fluid Art | 3D Art

Welcome to the new Dancing 3D Flow – Mixed Media Abstract Art tutorial. This time, I want to create a dancing flow with beautiful aqua and blue colors and emphasize it with a 3d effect. So again I’m going to use my ring and create an appearance of flow going through this ring. I love adding this effect to my pour paintings, and I haven’t done one with ocean colors. 


So, it’s time to fix it. “Splendid Aqua” is the secret message for this abstract painting. And the base, I want it to be a little darker, so I’m using Phthalo blue color, it dries quite dark. To create a more variation of color, a more multi-color base, I have prepared one more color, and this one is a little lighter. So, I have greenish blue with some turquoise in it. I think it will help my base look more interesting.

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.

I am working on a 12 by 24 inches canvas in this fluid art tutorial. I have pre-painted the sides because I want my sides to be covered. Phthalo blue is quite a transparent color, so it’s definitely a good strategy to paint the sides if you want to have good coverage on them as well when the painting is dry. So, without further ado let’s see how this creative abstract art idea turned out!

I have embellished my ring a little more. I added just more details to make it more sharp and crisp. And I love this 3D look that it creates with this ring it definitely adds so much dynamic feel to the composition of the whole acrylic painting. I used silver inside of the flow, and this color works amazing with blue and turquoise colors. And I really like how it looks when it’s dry. It adds so much of the subtle shine and it’s more interesting than just plain white color. So I do feel like I should use silver more often.

I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
