Any Star Wars fans out there? I’m making a painting for my hubby today. We are both big fans of all things Sci-Fi but for me, Star Wars is the best story ever written. I’m crazy about it. So when it comes to pouring on records, well they obviously look like planets so I wanted to create a Star Wars planet pour. Introducing Hoth, the ice planet.
A combination of dirty pour and swiping, I was trying to use a combination of blues and white to get an icy look, but on a small scale as if it were a planet seen from space. So I only wanted to create smaller cells on this one, for the right scale.
Here’s how I did it, and then what happened 🙁
OK, so I messed up by putting my thumb in it while it was still wet and convinced myself I didn’t like it anyway. The record was easy to scrape and wash so now I’ll have to give it another try. You can’t win them all!
Please PIN and share this article and video. Save it for later and share it with your painting friends ? Thank you.
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.
