A bit of Paint Pouring

Over the last few months I've become rather addicted to acrylic paint pouring. I spent several weeks watching YouTube videos, buying supplies and trying to catch up with other commitments so that I could clear some space in my craft room and get ready for action.

Here are the photos of the first few pours I'm willing to share (yes, there were some disasters!). This one is a swipe -



Another two swipes - both of these were still wet when I took the photos but they dried nicely and kept their colours and are now ready to varnish.



(The white at the bottom left is reflection, it is really black!)

I've learnt a lot from doing these, and from following Deby Coles website, Facebook group and YouTube videos. There are many people putting up videos and it's worth watching a selection as everyone has a different way of doing things. I have started off with PVA glue as my base but if I ever want to do more with my artwork (like selling it) then I would need to look into using more expensive ingredients as PVA glue can yellow over time. But, it's good enough to practice with!

So that's it for today - already a third of the way through October and I've managed 2 posts - I'd better buck up my ideas!! See you soon :)
