My second pour attempt turned out so much better than the first.
- PAINT: little bottles of liquid craft acrylics
- COLORS: Royal Purple, Vanilla Ice Cream, Pure Gold, Black
- FLOW MEDIUM: diluted Elmer’s GLUE ALL
- ADDITIVE: hair clipper oil (didn’t have silicone OR hair oil, figured close enough)
- GROUND: same sheet of 140 lb., 100% cotton, cold pressed watercolor paper.
- METHOD: drizzle/pour paint mixtures directly onto ground
- BLOW TORCH: no
The biggest surprise discovered about pouring on nice thick cotton paper was how good it feels, almost like a leather or something, after it dried. Yes, it warped a bit as it was drying, but a little flexing made it flat again. When you pour on paper, you can cut out interesting areas as smaller art or for other uses, perhaps to make a cover for a homemade journal book.
I’ll experiment with other grounds later… right now, I’m playing with paper.
UPDATE: I chopped it up.
Thanks for reading!
