How it is done:

  • Cover the work surface well and prepare the working materials. Put on work clothes and gloves if necessary. Stick pins into the back of the stretcher so that the paint can flow off better.
  • Shake the Pouring Fluid and acrylic paint well before use. Pour each acrylic colour into a separate cup. Pour in several parts of Pouring Fluid. Mix very thoroughly with a painting knife or spatula until a homogeneous mass is formed. If necessary, add Pouring Fluid or acrylic paint and mix again until the desired consistency is achieved. The consistency of the colour-pouring mixture should be thin so that the colour flows from the painting 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.
  • Now pour the other colours individually onto the canvas.
  • Apply a rich coat of opaque paint (often white or black) to the edge of the canvas.
  • Draw or wipe over the other colours with the help of a painting knife, spatula or damp paper.
  • This creates a great cell effect and lovely net structures.
  • Allow the pouring artwork to dry. The drying process can take several days. Position the canvas horizontally so that the paint does not flow further and can dry well.
