by Julie Cutts
Julie is an incredible member of our Facebook group because she actively shares her stunning pours. We’re glad to have her in our group. We’re sure she’ll continue helping others in the future as well.
Here is What Julie Says about the Pour:
“It’s an acrylic ring pour, spun out on a cake turntable. I used Elmers Glue All, Floetrol, and water as my pouring medium and mixed it in equal parts with my Mont Marte acrylic paint. I kept my mix quite thick (a mound on a mound) so that my rings would keep their shape. I used yellow, purple, lime, and turquoise and poured each color into a four-compartment split cup (one color per compartment).
I also used black which was a bit thinner. It was two parts pouring medium to one part paint. I covered my canvas with black paint. This allowed my colors to glide easily across the canvas. My canvas was 16″ square and I used a total of 20oz of mixed paint. I also used a portable doggy pool to keep my mess confined.
As I poured the colors from my split cup, in an anticlockwise motion creating rings, I slowly turned my cake turntable in a clockwise direction. This created a beautiful feathering design. Once my cup was empty, I gave the canvas a good spin. This pushed the paint to the edges of the canvas, covering each corner.
When I was happy with my design, I torched the paint with my blowtorch to remove any bubbles. The trick is to have your paint quite thick and not to spin too much paint off or you will lose your beautiful design. Give it a try, it’s a lot of fun.“

By Saskia Smit
Here’s an overview of the Process Saskia used to create this beautiful pour:
“I made this Venetian mask with plaster of paris casting in a mold (plaster of paris and a little bit of cement).
After it dried I used a concrete wall primer to prime it. After that, I painted it black with acrylic paint.
The colors are all ColourArte Primary Elements pigments, mixed into Vivid Polypour (pigments in 100% polymer medium with paint pouring consistency)
The black cell activator (what is creating lacing) is a mix of Australian floetrol and Golden carbon black.
All these ingredients are important to get a result like this.
I made a puddle with colors on top, added a black cell activator, and blew it out with an airbrush (just using that air to blow).
The mask is glued with hot glue to an MDF board.“
We must say Saskia has done a marvelous job. You may subscribe to her Youtube Channel and see what you can learn from her.

Here’s what April says about this pour:
“This pour was on a very small canvas 5 x 7 inches. I used 2 small flip cups of Dark Blue, Light Blue, Turquoise, White, Gold. Using glue and paint a 1 to 1 ratio. Also silicone in each color but the white. Then I tilted it and torched. The app I used to create the bottom part of the pour is called Mirror Lab. It’s quite easy to use this app. You just download the app and then add an image. There are endless options to choose from.”

By Jessica Nisbet Gibson
Here is information about the process Jessica used to draw this pour:
“So when I made this piece I was going for a sunset look. I actually scraped off the first try on it. I used a dark grey base color. The other colors I used were magenta, lagoon, sapphire, red, gold, and white. All of the colors were metallic except the white and dark grey.
I always use three parts floetrol to one part paint in all of my pours. In this one, I also added a few drops of wood conditioner in the white and that is what gave it most of the cells. Metallics with floetrol also give out pretty good cells. So I put my base down over the canvas.
I layered all of the colors on top of each other down the center of the canvas. I swiped to one side with the base color. Then I tilted one way and then back the other to cover the whole surface with the swipe. I tilted back and forth probably 4 times before I decided to stop.”

By Bethany Finn
Here’s the detail of the process Bethany used to draw this pour:
“This piece was created one afternoon in September after a month-long creative void. With this particular painting, i decided to let my mind be free, get lost in the music, and allowed what felt good come through in the process. I began by pouring a black base coat using Mars Black to cover the surface with a white canvas.
From there, I layered the paints into a shape resembling a rainbow. I used a hard-edged plastic tool with a small width for the swipe to pull the colors in different directions from various points along with layers. The colors used were (From Liquitex) Naphthol Crimson and Brilliant Purple.
Golden fluid acrylic was used for Cerulean Blue Hue, Pyrrole Orange, Primary Yellow, and Quinacridone Magenta. Grumbacher Academy was used for Mars Black The best advice I can give that I can give is to let go of your inhibitions, trust your intuition and let your imagination flow. I find when I am able to do that, I am most happy with my work.”

By Mik Mike
“The picture was made using a triple flip cup. As a medium, I used vinyl glue and only two drops of silicone.“

By Marie-ange Faisan
Here are Marie’s thoughts about this pour:
“Big cells were achieved with a 20cl cup containing 80% of white. I poured in it Blue, then green, then gold, then red, 5% each.
Small cells are the results of torching selected areas of the canvas.“

Thanks for checking out the top Acrylic Pours from September 2020, all selected from the Acrylic Pouring Facebook Group. Make sure you don’t get disappointed if your work isn’t featured here because the competition is really tough. We’re regularly monitoring the work of the artists and we’re pretty sure you’d get a spot in our future posts.
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.
