Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Acrylic Pour Painting - Fluid Art Idea

Welcome to the new Day and Night Pour – Mixed Media Abstract Art tutorial. In this paint pouring art lesson, I want to do a painting with a color split base with a little bit of twist. I want to create a day and night sky kind of painting. 

For the night sky, I want to have dark moody blues and some movement for some depth. For the day sky, of course, I want to have some lighter sky blue with pops of white. And in between these day and night parts, I want to create a really vibrant flow with the colors of the sunrise. I have some magenta, gold, some oranges, violets. It’s a very vibrant color palette. “Celestial flow” is a secret message, and of course, I hope to achieve beautiful celestial harmony in this pour painting.

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’m working on an 18 by 24 cradled wood panel. For my color split, I want to go for a wavy movement. I don’t want it to be fully symmetrical. I’m going to add white in between my dark and light parts. First of all, so that the colors don’t overmix when I blow it out, and second because I’m going to be using some magentas and violet, just to help my colors stand out better because they’re quite transparent. It’s definitely a good idea to use them over white. So let’s see how it turns out. And without further ado let’s get started.

I made two major mistakes during and after the drying of this abstract art beauty which created a lot of problems. And I want you to use this video as a guide on what not to do.

TIP: If you see cracks on your acrylic pour paintings when it’s dry, the resin will not fix that so need to paint over. If it’s something minor or this is painting that you really like you can definitely touch it up on top. But if you got a lot of crazing and cracking, in my opinion it’s just really not worth it. Just use this messed up canvas or panel as your practice panel and learn the lesson and move on to the next one. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
