Red Lotus Pour – 

Mixed Media Mandala Art ❤️

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Acrylic Pouring with Embellishment | Abstract Art

Welcome to the new Red Lotus Pour – Mixed Media Mandala Art tutorial. I have a new stencil this time. This is a beautiful lotus design and this is what we’re going to use along with the acrylic pouring technique. The plan is to create a really beautiful vibrant sensual color base with a bunch of reds. “Inner strength” is a secret message for this abstract painting. I’m working with quite powerful symbols and of course, the red color is a symbol on its own. So that one definitely stands for strength and energy. 


And for my base, I have prepared custom mixed pretty much all these colors except for maybe one or two because I want to have some darker and some lighter to create the really movement and depth in this acrylic pour painting. In this fluid art lesson, I work on a canvas 18 by 24 inches.

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.

I have painted the sides of this fluid acrylic painting with red previously, and I have taped to create little dom, because I’m going to be doing some tilting and I want to catch all my drips with that. And for the colors, I have some metallics and iridescent colors for a multi-color base. And without further ado let’s see how this creative abstract art idea turned out!

I really love how this acrylic pour painting turned out. And the lotus is such a beautiful powerful symbol and it can symbolize a couple different things depending on the culture and tradition. And for me, in combination with such a strong red color it symbolizes strength, resilience and affection, and this is the kind of energy I tried to put in this lotus painting, I think it worked out. I’m glad that I used varnish and not resin for this one because I keep touching the texture here on the lines and on the mandalas, on the stencil as well. This fluid painting turned out super cool. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
