Create three simple acrylic pour paintings

Let your creativity flow and create three simple acrylic pour paintings!
In this project we'll show you three different ways to create a simple pour painting using our Pouring Acrylic Paint Set in coral, so you can take a look at how it’s done, then give it a whirl yourself.

Open a set of Coral Acrylic Paint kits paints and pour each colour into a cup.

Hand pouring a Mont Mare Acrylic Pouring paint into a single plastic cup.

Add a small dash of water to dilute the pour paints (you won’t want to fill the cup all the way) these will create cells.

Mix each paint in with a palette knife to stir.

Prop your canvas up using four plastic cups on either corner, to protect the table.

Don’t forget the edges of the canvas.

Then watch the cells form and wait for the paint to dry, then you're all done!

Pour white pour paint onto the canvas (You can use a palette knife to control how much paint is poured on, to avoid saturating the canvas).

Blow the paint around with a straw, remember to blow out, not in!
