Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Acrylic Pouring with Molly’s Artistry | Dutch Pour

Welcome to a new Diptych Art Challenge – Mixed Media Abstract Art video. In this acrylic paint pouring tutorial, I want to try something absolutely new for me. We are with Molly in Molly’s art studio up for a new art challenge. We’re going to be spinning the wheel this time to choose the colors for the pour painting. Hopefully, we will win a beautiful color palette. 


“Friendship” is a secret message for this fluid acrylic painting. We’re going to do a diptych this time. We’re going to go for a color split base, and we agreed that one color is going to be white just to keep it a little easier for ourselves. And the second color of the color split we’re going to pick from the wheel.

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.

And after that, we’ll need to create a beautiful flow on the base. Also, we’re going to pick two colors inside of the flow and after that, each one of us will be allowed to pick the other two colors for her side of the painting. But two we’ll have the same and we’re going to pick them randomly from the wheel. This art idea seems to be very funny and inspiring! So let’s see how this turns out. And without further ado let’s get started.

And here is this beautiful abstract art painting is all dry. I have to say I am so happy with the way my yellow dried. This is definitely not the color that I would choose for the color split base. I usually use yellow just as an accent along with gold. But this fluid painting it’s turned out so full of energy, it’s very dynamic, and the colors are just popping. And of course, we got kind of lucky to get magenta and greenish blues. All these colors are so bright and vibrant together! I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
