DIRTY POUR with Marabu acrylic paints and Marabu Pouring Fluid

Pouring – the fascinating acrylic technique used to create surprising patterns and breathtaking effects. With DIRTY POUR, all of the colours are added to a single cup, then jointly poured onto the background.

  • Our Marabu acrylic paints work brilliantly with our Marabu Pouring Fluid. Try them for yourself!

How it is done:

  • Carefully cover the work surface and your clothing. Shake the Pouring Fluid well before use. Get out the required materials, acrylic paint and Pouring Fluid. Insert push pins into the back of the canvas frame so that the paint can run off better.
  • Pour each acrylic paint into a separate cup and add several parts of Pouring Fluid. Use a palette knife or spatula to give the mixture a good stir until a homogeneous substance has been created. If necessary, add more Pouring Fluid or acrylic paint and mix again until the desired consistency has been achieved. The mixture of paint and Pouring Fluid should have a runny consistency so that it runs off the palette knife.
  • Priming the canvas frame makes the paint flow better. To do this, pour the content of a cup (in the desired colour) onto the canvas frame and lightly spread with a palette knife.
  • Pour the remaining paints into a mixing cup one after another.
  • Pour the cup over the background.
  • Move the canvas backwards and forwards until the desired pattern has been achieved.
  • The artwork you create using a pouring technique may well take several days to dry. Important: the background must be positioned horizontally so that the paint does not continue to run.
