One of the interesting techniques is the pouring technique-Fluid Art.
How it works?
Acrylic paints are diluted with water to a consistency at which they can flow freely over the canvas. Several colors can be mixed before pouring acrylic onto the canvas. In this case, the pattern will be more interesting. But it is important not to mix too much so that there is no dirt on the canvas. PVA glue or machine oil can be added to the paint. This creates additional painterly effects.
Paint can be poured onto the canvas by tilting the canvas in different directions, you can blow the paint with a straw, direct the paint with various stacks or a hairdryer. The arsenal of tools for working with liquid acrylic is huge.
So, Fluid Art literally means mobile (liquid) creativity.
The process of creating a painting consists in filling the canvas with liquid acrylic paints of different colors. You can do it one at a time or at the same time, choose yourself. Then the surface is gently tilted in different directions, mixing colors create a unique pattern that resembles an abstraction.
What will you get from the liquid acrylic technique?
We declare with confidence that in the end you will get a unique picture,
because it is impossible to repeat what will happen in the process of its creation!
