Hey Botanist Wannabees!
Wouldn’t you like to see the Acrylic Pouring Flowers by some amazing artists?
We have an incredible community of Acrylic Pouring Lovers on Facebook where artists proudly share their artwork with other members. Recently, we decided to create a post about acrylic pouring flowers and we found some of the best pours there.
In this post, we’re not just sharing those flower pours but we’ve also collected some valuable tips from these artists. We hope you’d get to learn something new from these artists.
We’d urge everyone to share their artwork in our Acrylic Pouring group because we’re always in hunt for some amazing acrylic pours. Who knows you may also get a chance of getting featured in our future post. So, feel free to share your artwork with the community members.
Before we take a look at the acrylic pouring flowers, we’d like to share some valuable resources with the acrylic pouring lovers.
Now, let’s take a look at the acrylic pouring flowers we’ve collected from our group.
Grace Over Granite

This acrylic pour painting was created with black, white and metallic silver. I love experimenting with new ideas and decided to paint a flower over the top using oil paints.
The black paint was thinned with Liquid to achieve the transparent shadow, and I love that the oil paints worked great over the acrylic pour. This process was fun and I’m creating an instructional video for the flower embellishment that will be available on my Patreon page.

On a side note, to complement your Acrylic Pours, I highly recommend using a Cricut Machine (my personal favourite is the Explore Air 2 machine) to design and print yourself beautiful crafts on all sort of supports. Check it out here! Now back to another flower pours.

The original flower was created by a dutch pour. I used Arteza paints and Controlled a dutch pour. The stems were created with Arteza paints.
Tip: We can combine acrylic pouring/fluid art with traditional painting to create beautiful artwork. There are so many possibilities with the artwork and that people should push themselves to do more with their works. Try new things, learn to control what some call random. Enjoy the process along the way.

Flip cup pour, chameleon technique & balloon kiss.
Tip: let your painting sit for an hour or two before chameleons & balloon kiss.

This is a smaller canvas – 12” x 16”. The background of this piece was a ‘failed’ attempt at my first time trying to use a hairdryer to blow out a puddle pour. I did not like the results so I used a wet paper towel to swipe over the canvas. Weeks later when I looked at it again I decided to paint the flowers over top.
A tip for painting petals is to load your paintbrush with several colors (highlights, deeper colors) at the same time and then apply paint to the canvas in one quick motion. Try to keep the highlight on the same side of each pedal.

It was created using the ‘flip cup’ pouring technique. I used a mixture of glue and water as my pouring medium, then mixed this with acrylic paint. I added silicone oil to create cells. The paint was then layered in cups and flipped over onto the canvas.
I tilted the canvas to spread the paint, then torched it lightly with a butane blowtorch until the cells appeared. I then dipped a small balloon into the center of a cluster of cells, creating a gorgeous little flower effect.
Julie is one of the best artists in our Community. She always shares outstanding pours in the group. You can find her work on Youtube.

This technique is Flower dip with the zipped bag with puddles. You just put some puddles on wet canvas in the shape of a flower or just a circle and dip it with blown up zipped bag. And this creates a beautiful flower painting.
Colors: – titanium white – metallic white – crimson red – cadmium red hue – orange – mid yellow – Indian yellow – cardinal red – yellow green – green gold All my paints are mixed with acrylic primer in 1:1 ratio.

After being told in high school that she was so bad at art that she should switch to another subject, Deby didn’t paint again for 35 years. Then a stroke released a new wave of creativity and she began exploring with dot painting, abstract and eventually acrylic pouring, and at last the joy of working with color returned. You don’t need ‘talent’ to be an acrylic pouring artist – just enthusiasm, some basic instruction, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. Paint along with her and learn from her many mistakes, and you’ll soon make great art together.
