Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Chain Pull Technique ~ Satisfying Fluid Art ~ Flow Art

Welcome to the new UNIQUE BUTTERFLY Acrylic Pouring Video Tutorial. This time I want to do a butterfly chain pull. And this acrylic pour painting video tutorial is inspired by designer Gemma and her beautiful butterfly. So this time I’m going to play with a chain pool, and I have never done string pools or chain pools before. 

And let me tell you that this acrylic pouring technique is not as easy as it looks, and starting out with the butterfly is quite challenging for me. I hope it will succeed. But I’m not sure.

I have experimented with it a few times and what I have discovered for myself, it’s very important and almost critical for this acrylic pouring technique is to have the base layer on the canvas very thin before you even start doing a chain pull. I hope that maybe it will be helpful for some of you, as well if you also decide to try out this butterfly chain pull technique. So without further ado, let’s get started and see how it works.

Wow! I totally love this fluid abstract painting! This butterfly acrylic pouring is so gorgeous! Guys, I am just beyond happy with this butterfly. I know it’s far from perfect but the way the colors and a little bit of cells all play together… I think is just amazing. I like the color palette and I’m really happy that I decided to create this acrylic pour painting! The Chain Pull technique is so satisfying to work with! The possibilities of Fluid String Art are nearly endless! 

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