Abstract Art❄️

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Acrylic Pouring with Embellishment | Mixed Media Fluid Art

Today let’s create a TEXTURED SnowFlake Abstract Art. So, this is going to be a really interesting mixed media project. I want to create a blowout, fluid art technique and it’s going to serve as a base and as a background and then after it’s dry I’m going to use the stencil to add the snowflake. Well this can be anything really this can be sun, this can be a star, this can be a mandala. So for me, it’s going to be a snowflake. 

I’m going to add it on top with a little bit of texture, and I think I’ll use some metallic colors so it’s nice and shiny. I’m super excited about this project. I think it’s perfect for the Holiday season. For my colors, I have a very limited color palette today because I want it to be very cold, of course, for the snowflake and very shiny and shimmery. 

TEXTURED SnowFlake Abstract Art Mixed Media with Olga Soby

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 got some Prussian blue and some silver, some Iridescent turquoise, some just turquoise blue and some white. For my snowflake, as I said I want it to be in the center, and I want it to be light because it has to be light. Prussian blue is going to work as a background, and I’m going to do a center blowout because I want to create an impression that it sort of shines and there is a little halo around it. For me, the snowflake is definitely the perfect pour painting for this time of the year. And without further ado let’s get started with mixed media snowflake.

And here it is all done. Finished, can be touched, and it’s actually really fun to touch because it has some texture. And if you haven’t tried this stencil fluid art technique, where you add embellishment to acrylic pour painting with a little bit of texture just totally do it. It works so well. And I really like how this snowflake design really complements the burst of color in this abstract pour painting. And that shine with some metallics and iridescent colors is just perfect in this abstract artwork. So I think it also worked very well that I used not just silver for my snowflake but also some iridescent turquoise. It creates a very interesting texture and it makes this whole texture design a lot more appealing in my opinion.

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