Phosphorescent Glow-in-the-Dark Paint Pouring ~ Aurora Fluid Art 

Welcome to the new Northern Light - Acrylic Pouring Abstract Art tutorial. Today is a fluid art experiment time! I'm so excited to try out the phosphorescent gel in landscape painting with fluid acrylics. These new paint pouring supplies are supposed to glow in the dark once the pour painting is dry. 


So, I have a yellow and a green one. These are gel, not paint. Also, I have prepared a whole bunch of different colors that I want to use along. I thought about what can be better to test out phosphorescent gel than to do Aurora painting. So this is what I'm up to in this fluid art video tutorial.

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.

"Aurora Bliss" is a secret message for this pour painting. So, I have prepared this gel, I also have a bunch of other colors, mostly green like an Aurora Northern Light, and a couple of other colors to complement - some purple and pink. And this product is a gel which means it's supposed to dry transparent but it glows in the dark. So even though it kind of looks greenish and yellowish right now, I don't know exactly how that's gonna dry, so I want to accompany it with actual green colors that dry green. And for the base, I want to experiment with the fluid painting composition. I want to let the paint and gravity decide the layout of my Aurora lights. 

Let's see how this abstract painting idea turns out and let's see how this product works. And let's get started.

This abstract pour painting is done and finished. I covered it with the glossy varnish. This acrylic painting turned out so dreamy. So beautiful. It's like a winter fairy tale. And this winter landscape painting got a lot of texture. I love how the trees turned out. And I got some texture in the Aurora section though, so it's definitely very unique and very interesting fluid painting. I added some reflection of this Northern Light glow on the snow and on some sides of the trees, and this effect definitely makes more sense when you look at this abstract painting in the dark. So, yes, I am truly in love with this piece of art. 

I hope you enjoyed this acrylic painting tutorial and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
