Welcome to new SPRING Butterfly Acrylic Pour Painting Video Tutorial. This time I’m going to create a butterfly with the chain pull technique. I think chain pulling is the best technique to create a beautiful butterfly. And for this pour painting, I want to do a side view butterfly. I find such acrylic pouring composition to be a lot more interesting.
So I am super excited to work on this fluid painting. I want to make it extra bright, happy, light, and cheerful. “Joyous flow” is a secret message for this abstract artwork. And as always for the chain pull technique we need to start with the base. The most important thing is not to add too much paint. The overall layer should be pretty thin.

Also I want to have my base, the background for the butterfly multicolored with some green and some blue. I want to add white first and then I will add other colors. I want to have some of the green on the bottom and some blue at the top.
TIP: If your paint is barely moving when you’re tilting this is actually a pretty good indication for this particular acrylic pouring technique. That means that the overall layer of paint is not too thick and it’s also not too fluid. Personally, I like to use a little thicker consistency for this technique. So without further ado let’s get started.
Here is this pour painting all done, finished, covered with a layer of epoxy for this beautiful glossy finish. I think this abstract butterfly turned out so beautiful and so elegant. I just love it. I worked on a few sections on the wings after this fluid painting is dry and change that flower a little bit, especially the stem. I wanted to make it just more thin and elegant. Also I love how the background turned out with that white green and some of that blue. I think it looks very airy and light and at the same time makes the overall composition of abstract painting more dynamic. I love the outcome! It’s so full of color and energy. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
