Introduction to acrylic pouring

Acrylic pouring or fluid art is currently the most popular form of abstract art.

Its biggest appeal is you don’t need an art degree or even Any art experience!!

Acrylic pouring is an experience where you continue to learn and experiment each time you do it. Trying the many different mediums and additives available and then looking at the multitude of different canvases you can add your own flair to. Sometimes you create a masterpiece but quite honestly your not too sure why that piece came out better than previous attempts.

Currently in the UK there are not many places to go to learn the basics of Acrylic pouring. Just online videos and experimenting, the initial stage costs me small fortune until I figured out my own pouring formula that I can adjust depending on my canvas.

This in turn means there is a desire for little old me to share my experiences and knowledge I have learn’t to give you a head start on your acrylic pouring journey.

Workshop content

To introduce the most popular pouring mediums on the market that can be used.

I shall share my own recipe which is more affordable (key when getting though a lot of it) but also archival (if you create a masterpiece it will last forever).

Tips for natural cell production and looking at additives to get cells every time.

Types of paints that can be used.

Paint consistency, this makes or breaks a painting so I shall work with you to feel comfortable with the consistency of your paints ready for pouring.

A look at a handful of canvases I use to give you ideas and the opportunity to question me while your creative juices are flowing.

During the workshop you will create 2 of your own small pieces (10cm x 10cm) and I will supply suitable boxes to carefully carry your wet work home in.

I shall also cover any canvas preparation and finishes I use that work best for me.

Included are all materials required on the day , gloves, disposable carry boxes and a handout covering key information. Please wear old clothes.

Please note …. This is very much a introduction to the art form of acrylic pouring, you will not leave feeling like an expert and in fact will probably have more questions than prior to doing the workshop.

However the aim is for you to leave excited and with enough knowledge to be able to go away and start creating some beautiful art.
