Acrylic pouring technique Puddle Pour, Fluid Art

Puddle Pour Acrylic Pouring

Acrylic pouring technique Puddle Pour is considered one of the basic. For beginners, its study is necessary in order to move on and study more complex techniques of working with acrylic paints.

To tell you briefly, in this technique, the paints are alternately poured onto the canvas in puddles. In this case, the canvas is pre-covered with a base layer of paint. Each new color is placed in the center of the puddle. There may be one large or several puddles on the canvas. Then, by rotating the canvas, the paints roll out on the surface forming a pattern similar to the rings of a tree saw.

Creating puddles of paint

The features of the acrylic pouring technology follow from the name of the Puddle Pour technique. We put a layer of paint on the canvas to improve the sliding of our future drawing. We pour the paint with one or several puddles. Different colors are poured in turn. If there are several puddles, then it is advisable to place them close to each other. It should turn out something in the form of such a drawing.

Puddles of paint

While the acrylic painting does not look very interesting. Although for novice artists, such a result is good. Further, there are many options for improving the drawing.

Working with puddles

You can simply stretch the puddles on the canvas by swinging it in one direction or the other. It turns out something like this picture.

Stretched puddles

You can make several sliding movements through the circles of paint with your finger, wand or any other object. Then we stretch the drawing on the canvas with swaying movements. It turns out to be quite an interesting pattern.

Complex pattern

If you are already an experienced artist, then you can use the SheleeArt technique. This is drawing puddles, followed by inflating and stretching the paint. One or more colored puddles of paint according to a certain recipe are covered with another puddle of special paint (cell activator). The drawing is inflated by breathing or a hair dryer with the formation of beautiful colored cells. Then the drawing is stretched across the canvas by swaying or on a spinning table.

  1. SheleeArt Technique, one puddle.
  2. SheleeArt Technique, lots of puddles.

You can not use complex techniques, but just put a lot of puddles on the canvas and that will be enough. The main thing is to choose the colors well so that they are bright and contrasting.

A lot of puddles in the picture

Another option is when filling with puddles can be done in Reverse dip or flower dip technique. To do this, we apply a napkin or film to the paint on the canvas, as if gluing them together. Carefully smooth it out so that there are no air bubbles left between the surfaces. We separate the surfaces from each other.

Reverse dip or flower dip technique

An important point. Almost any technique can be diversified by adding silicone to the paint.

There are many more ways to create an interesting pattern using the puddle filling technique. Fantasize and invent your own techniques of pouring with acrylic based on Puddle Pour.
