Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Abstract art 🪐 - Amazing Galaxy Art Tutorial for Beginners

Welcome to new Magma planet paint pouring mixed media abstract art video tutorial. I am back to my “Dancing Universe” series, and this time I want to create a planet pour. In this art lesson I want to switch my process a little bit. In all my previous planet pours I have first created the planet and then the negative space around it. So, let’s switch it up, and create the negative space first and the last will do the planet. 

“Tranquility” is a secret message today for this abstract painting. And for creating the negative space I’m going to go for dirty pour technique. I’m going to use Prussian blue as my base color.

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 I want to add a few other colors inside of it. First is iridescent black-blue. You know I’ve been using this color a lot for my space paint pouring series and it’s absolutely gorgeous. Then iridescent black-blue, it dries with a beautiful serene shimmer. I also want to add a little bit of silver. And then I want to add another iridescent color, iridescent blue-green. It also works amazing for creating some shimmer. And it works very well actually with the Prussian blue color. I love them as a combo for my galaxy art. Let’s see how that turns out. So without further ado let’s get started. Let’s go.

This abstract diy wall art is all dry now and finished as always with a layer of epoxy resin. And I absolutely love how this fluid painting dried, and with few small touch-ups on the planet it looks absolutely perfect. And I want to name it “Magma planet” because I think it definitely has a beautiful melting magma energy with these hot colors. And the negative space in this acrylic pour painting is absolutely mesmerizing. It’s my favorite part. Very abstract, very moving a lot of really cool lines and details all over. And I love how they all bring attention to the center – to my planet. 

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