by Frank Morrison
Here’s how Frank created this beautiful piece of art:
I used heavy styrofoam and bamboo skewers to hold the ornaments stable while pouring individual colors directly on the outside of the bauble. The consistency I prefer for the paint is slightly thicker than what you might use for a traditional “dirty pour” on canvas.
In order to blend the colors into desirable patterns, I used a flexible straw and sometimes spin the bauble around on the skewer. After about a week or so I used Krylon Triple Thick to protect them.

At the first glance, they look like bath bombs but they’re actually very stunning. Caren says some of these ornaments are glass while others are plastic. She’s used 2 coats of acrylic paint to seal them and they’re looking great. Moreover, Caren has painted the outside because it’s pretty difficult paint the inside. You may also try this trick if you want.

Here’s what Diane says about her experience in Acrylic Pouring:
I would have never ever imagined I would find such peace and contentment in painting. I stumbled upon my arty side quite by accident i was so bored whilst recovering from illness confined to barracks and going stir crazy for almost 18 months. Now my mind is always buzzing with ideas hatching plans for my next artistic adventure.
Diane Uses Acrylics and glue gun to give these pieces a stained glass look. These aren’t the only Christmas pours she has shared in the group but there are many others. So, you can visit the group to explore more of her work.

Ana’s thoughts about this acrylic painting:
The Pouring is a swipe. The Christmas balls I first painted with chalk on it and then with a brush and acryl. It’s a 50x50cm card.
By Amy Bennett Kitchen
How can we forget the Christmas tree while talking about Best Holiday Pours? Amy ordered these Christmas trees from Amazon and then prepared these pours. I believe she could’ve prepared these trees herself but she preferred ordering them from Amazon because she wanted to save her time.
And why would someone waste time on something they can easily get at a reasonable price. These were basically the wooden trees but Amy has added life to them. Some of these are ribbon pours while others are flip cup. You may also try this technique this year as you can easily order these wooden trees from Amazon. So, it’s time to show your skills to others.
by Kayce Leigh Starnes
These Christmas balls look stunning, don’t they? Kayce really deserves appreciation for putting in so much effort. She says that she was initially trying to paint the balls from inside. But after several failed attempts, she decided to pour on the outside and it went perfectly fine. Kayce used cake pop sticks to keep the ornaments in place while pouring on them.
You may also try this method to keep the balls vertical and raised. These black ornaments are really interesting. And you can also get them from different online stores.

by Jeff Stocker
It’s one of the most amazing holiday pours we’ve seen so far. We’d like to appreciate Jeff for sharing such an amazing piece of art with us. You should also show your holiday pours to the group members and see what compliments you get for your work. Jeff wasn’t quite satisfied with the pour but when he shared it with the group members, he realized that people found it quite interesting.
So, it helped with boosting his confidence levels and he started trying some new and unique ideas afterward.
