A. Create a surface that has defined walls that are at least 1/8” high. In this example I used paint and impasto medium to create a rock wall. These walls will confine the liquid mixture when poured onto the canvas.
B. Mix a few colors of fluid acrylic paint and glazing medium. I mix about 20% paint to 80% glazing medium. Mix thoroughly – when complete the mixture will be the color of the paint.
C. Pour the first color onto the intended area of the surface
D, E and F. Pour the other colors onto the mixture
G. Begin to rotate the canvas at slight angles so the liquid mixture will occupy the entire area – the wall will confine the mixture from flowing over into non-intended areas or off the canvas
H. As with any technique experimentation is the key. Here with the left over mixtures I poured contrasting colors onto one another. When dry the paint and glazing medium will have little color shift form wet to dry and will remain shimmering for an interesting effect.
