Golden DRAGON 

Acrylic Pour Painting

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

NEW Pacific Vibe ~ Abstract 💙 Fluid Art

In today’s tutorial, I’m gonna create Golden DRAGON Acrylic Pour Painting. It would be paint and water only fluid pouring with a multi-color base. Today’s plan is to create an oceany turquoise blue base and then the golden flow over it.


Do you ever get those times when you have beautiful idea in your head, but when you start pouring it doesn’t work out as good or doesn’t look as you planned? And the process didn’t go as smoothly as I would like it to be. I think it’s very important to remember that even though probably if you’re watching a lot of youtube videos it’s easy to get under impression that acrylic pouring is so easy.

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.

You just take fluid paint, you blow it out, you pour it out, and boom! It’s ready, it’s beautiful, it’s like magic. But in reality, it’s not like that, or at least not always. So even though I think it’s important to plan out your colors, plan out your composition. When you’re inside of that process, you have to let it all go and really let your creative intuition guide you.

Some acrylic pour paintings make you sweat and today’s painting is one of those. I hope that today’s example helped you to realize that there are always challenges involved in any abstract art creation, even tho you’re the only one who gets to decide what you want it to look like. Yes, we’re our worst critics, but moving forward no matter what and following your heart I think is the only way to overcome that, as in doing so you stay true to yourself. I’m in love with this gorgeous Golden Dragon pour 💗 This blowing technique requires a very fluid consistency, which allows creating the most beautiful color transition with the most simple pouring recipe. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
