Acrylic Paint Pouring – 4

This one is huge – 30″ x 40″.  It did not turn out at all like I was intending, it’s way too busy.  But as usual, I learned a lot.  For instance, I tried to do a second pour to touch up some spots.  Nope, not happening…  The paint doesn’t move the same way, and I ended up with texture that I didn’t want.

I’ve noticed that on most of the tutorials on the ‘net about this process, people are using 6″ x 6″, or 10″ x 10″, canvasses.  Now I know why – this took MASSIVE amounts of paints.

I’m going to try it with high gloss house paint next, for the base colors, to see if I can do it more cheaply, yet still get the same effects.

This is currently hanging in our powder room.  When you stand at the sink, looking into the mirror, it shows up behind you, and is pretty dang gorgeous.
