Fluid Painting 😍

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Gold, Copper, and Green - PAINT and WATER only - Acrylic Pouring

Welcome to a new video tutorial – Fabulous Palette Fluid Painting. This time I’m taking a part in the paint pouring challenge. This is a fun interaction between artists where we would give each other three do’s and three don’ts for our acrylic pouring process. Alright, so for my do’s and don’ts: first – do make a triptych and don’t use panels smaller than 10 by 12. Got it. Here I have three panels 11 by 14 each. 

Next, the colors: Do use gold and Don’t use blue. So, first, when I was planning my color palette, I thought: “Okay, gold will look very nice with purple, but purple is also a color that I use a lot”. Since it’s a challenge, this time I decided to push myself even further and use green as a base for all three panels. I will use phthalo green color for a base for my pour painting. This is a darker and a little even more turquoise type of green.

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, I think that will look amazing with the gold. I also want to add some white and maybe a few more colors. This was for my colors. For acrylic pouring technique – don’t use the open cup technique. Okay, not going to do that. So, the panels under each other. This is super interesting because I have never done acrylic pouring triptych. And while I will work I have to put them side by side, because otherwise just they just wouldn’t fit on my table. But at the end of this fluid art tutorial, I will hang them on the wall horizontally. And with that being said, let’s get started.

I am just beyond happy with how this abstract painting looks dry, especially now when I covered it with epoxy resin, and this pour painting is all shiny and glossy. As you can see the phthalo green has dried super dark. This dark background really makes all those colors pop so much. And I think this is my favorite part about this triptych, how this gold and white and some magenta pop, and there are many bursts of color all over the three panels that are just connected in one dancing flow. And I love to make my colors dance, so this fluid painting is perfect. Happy with the outcome! 

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