On 8th Feb our fellow artist Robin gave a demonstration of 3 different Acrylic Pour demonstrations to the art group members. Describing what acrylic paint is, how it’s consistency is different from manufacturer to manufacturer and how it behaves when various mediums and chemicals are added. In its simplest form adding water to acrylic paint can thin the paint which makes it suitable for pouring. The consistency you are trying to achieve is more ‘latte than tea’, similar to single cream. Robin added other mediums, like PVA glue, silicone as well as professional pouring medium to illustrate the different effects.
Robin then produced three colourful pictures, a Dutch pour blowout akin to a dancing dragon, a chain pull butterfly and a central swipe example all using various tools including a hairdryer, a kitchen torch and straws. After the coffee break the members had a go producing some interesting and amazing effects.
An enjoyable and interesting mornings painting with a difference. Loads of fun and sure to be repeated at some point. Here are some examples of the results, enjoy.
