Acrylic Pouring 🦋

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

New Style STRING Pull Technique | Abstract Pour Painting | Fluid Art

Welcome to Satisfying BUTTERFLY Acrylic Pouring tutorial! This time I want to do a chain pull butterfly. But Instead of adding my paint in lines to outline the butterfly, I will add it in drops. Let’s see how this fluid art idea will work. And for my negative space, I want to go for black color. For the colors of my butterfly let’s keep it simple this time – aqua green, turquoise, and turquoise phthalo shade. As for the recipe for this acrylic pour painting, all of my colors are mixed with Floetrol and water. 

“Harmony” is my secret message for this pour painting. I’m working on a 12 by 12 cradled wooden panel and this time I’m not going to be too worried about covering my edges. In this fluid art tutorial instead of creating lines that would shape the butterfly, I actually add my paint in drops on the canvas.

As you might have guessed I’ll use my chains as a guideline just to keep my butterfly a little more symmetrical. Also, I want to add a drop of white to every drop of color, hopefully, that will create a lot of contrast and help my colors stand out and not disappear in the black base. And I want to try to align my chain right outside of the color dots, not on them. Let’s see how that will work.

Wow! I totally love this abstract painting! This butterfly acrylic pouring is so gorgeous! I like how it turned out from the drips rather than from the lines. This is a butterfly that wants to be a bird one day. I love this effect, I definitely want to try it with some other styles. I like the color palette and dark base in this pour painting! And I really love the outcome! This Butterfly makes me feel so happy!

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