Variations of Acrylic Pours

Dirty pour and balloons.
 A few years ago a friend convinced me to try acrylic pouring. It took a little convincing because I didn't think it was something I wanted to do. It was just too trendy...everyone was doing it. I usually prefer to try things that no-one has seen before and try to do my own take on it. I didn't think acrylic pouring was something I could experiment and make into my own style.
   As you can guess she talked me into it. Our first attempt was fun but not what I would call successful. After doing some more research and some help from a fellow artist we were off and runner. And I have to say somewhat addicted. If you've done some acrylic pours you already know, you can't do just one.

   After doing a multitude of dirty pours and teaching a number of workshops with it, I started to try some other techniques. First was the Swipe and with it the wave and layers. This became my second Acrylic Pours workshop.

   This past month I gave myself a few days to do some more experimenting with a variety of pour methods. All the images here are from those 3 playful, experimenting days.

Tree rings.
   Some of the methods that I tried and had success with were tree rings, cloud effect and balloons.

Swipes and balloons.
   I have a little more experimenting to do and then I will be sharing these methods in a new upcoming workshop. If you've done some pouring or are a newbie, this workshop promises to be a fun one.

   I will keep you posted when the date is set for it.

Keep creating!
