Dancing Flow for Beginners 

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial 💛

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Multi-Color Base Abstract Art | Fluid Art

Let’s create a Dancing Flow for beginners acrylic pouring tutorial. This is going to be a Dancing Flow painting on a multi-color blue base. For the base of this abstract painting, I have some really beautiful dark blues. I also have some phthalo blue and greenish-blue, and a few other shades to create some nice pops and vibrance in that base. And the flow is going to be really bright gold with some pops of pink colors. 


I’ve been playing a lot with these colors and I know exactly what I want to do for this pour painting. I am super excited to get started with creating this artwork. “Coalescence” is a secret message for today’s fluid painting. I want the base to be primarily greenish-blue. I really love how this color dries and how it also works with turquoise, gold, and with white.

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.

But to make it more interesting I want to add some phthalo blue. Compared to phthalo blue greenish-blue has more green in tint. Because phthalo blue is just a phthalo pigment. And greenish-blue is a mix of phthalo blue and also phthalo green. This color is so beautiful. You can mix it yourself from other colors. I also want to add some turquoise and some iridescent blue-green and some violet. I don’t really want to have pure violet sections in my abstract painting, but it’s a really dark color and will help me to create some nice shades. So let’s see how it works. Let’s get started.

I absolutely love this acrylic pour painting. It’s all so beautifully connected. Perfect match for the secret message and for what I initially planned. There are so much balance and unity within this pour painting despite all the different flows and really different directions of the movement. All are dancing together. I love making my colors dance.

Little Tip for beginners: I usually look from above to check out the composition of my abstract painting and see if I like or dislike any sections or is there anything else I want to change. This really helps when working with bigger pour paintings. 

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