Finally, here is an easy acrylic medium for creating thick leveling, resinous pours of colour. It does not require the two part mixing nor solvents. Just add any acrylic colour, stir and pour. Liquitex Pouring Medium can be used in combination with acrylic colors to create seamless surfaces and puddles of color. Liquitex Pouring Medium is formulated to create a smooth, seamless, and strong body of paint when poured or dripped onto a surface.
TIPS & TECHNIQUES
Paint wet in wet! Multicolored compositions can be created in one sitting if several colors are prepared at a time. Apply the next color directly after the first pour for spots or crisp concentric circles.
Marbled surfaces can be created using multiple colors applied side by side and then blended using a palette knife or by dragging a fork or pointed tool through the surface. Turn the support on its side to create thin drips. Allow the paint to run down the support surface at a variety of speeds.
Pours and pools can be layered. Apply another coat after the first has dried for layers of color.
For sculptural applications, directly pour medium and paint mixture onto a glass surface to create a moveable, flexible paint slick.
To make removable pours, treat the glass surface with a mold release or quick release spray for easy removal of the paint after it dries. When dry the poured paint can be sewn, glued, or rolled for different sculptural effects. In order to ensure the continued strength of the paint film, do not mix water with the Liquitex Pouring Medium.
