1. Introduction: in this course, I'll be teaching you a quick and easy way to make your own fluid acrylic masterpiece. This course requires no prior experience. Anyone can do it. Now let's begin with what you'll be needing. Uh. 2. Materials: to start with, we're going to need some paints. Any acrylic paint will do, and you can use as many colors as you want Today. I'll just be sticking to titanium white, pink, cobalt blue and ultra marine blue. But as I said, it doesn't matter which colors you use. You'll need to canvas. I chose to use four small ones, but you can always change the size to your preference shot glasses. These will be used for pouring the late paint onto the canvas. The bigger the canvas, the bigger the shot. Glass or cup should be paint thinner. I decided to use float around this time, but any paint thinner work just fine. If you're painters still to thick, you can always add some de mineralized water. Though normal water might work. Justus well. Cups will be needed for mixing the paint together and a small plastic knife from mixing and spreading the paint. You should also have a dust free room or some kind of cover for the painting, allowing it to drive without the dust settling on the wet paint. Keep in mind it needs to let the air circulate around the painting, so don't just put it in a covered. Now let's move on to the part you've been waiting for 3. What To Do: to start with, makes 40 grams of flow troll with 20 grams of acrylic in a cup and repeat for all the colors you're using. I made two batches for the white necks. You'll also want to adjust the quantity of mix to the size of your canvas, but try to stick to this ratio. Your mixtures should be the consistency of pouring cream. If it isn't, then add some de mineralized water to dilute it further. Leave the paints for a few minutes to special and allow the bubbles in the mix to rise an escape. You'll need to elevate the canvas slightly. This could be done with a food calling rack, a metal tray or even drawing pins on the back of the canvas. This is to allow any drips to fall off, preventing a curtain edge. Make sure the canvases level so the paint doesn't all run to one side. Grab your short glasses and begin filling them with different layers of paint. Keep in mind that the color at the bottom will be coming out last. I've also found that white paint usually sinks, so I prefer to keep it on the bottom of the glass way . I use the paintbrush or plastic knife to spread some colored paint of your choice over the edges of the canvas, leaving the centre dry. This is done because paint slides easier on wet surfaces. Once all this is done, you can start pouring the paint from one of the shot glasses slowly onto the canvas. You can make swells or circles toe. Add a specific pattern to it. Once you've tipped most of the paint from the glass, you can lift up the canvas and tip it from side to side to direct the flow of the paint. - It is normal for a lot of the paint to drip off the sides, and this could be collected on a tray underneath. Dependence and other art pieces later on. The paint needs to have dripped all the way around the canvas to allow the paint to run off easier. - Leave the painting in a dust free room or container and ensure it has some airflow to increase the drawing speed. Depending on the thickness of the paint. The drying process may take from a few days up to two weeks, and there you have it, your very own fluid acrylic poor art.
