I am so excited and delighted to finally announce that the Getting Started With Acrylic Pouring guide is now ready. I took into account all of the questions being asked over and over in our Facebook Group to make sure I didn’t leave out any of the essentials that a new painter needs to know in order to be successful with their first pours.
The Getting Started With Acrylic Pouring guide is a PDF e-book you can download and read on your computer, tablet etc and includes:
- Safety considerations
- Terms and definitions
- Tools and equipment you will need (and where to get them)
- Which additives to use to make cells
- Mixing your paints to the right consistency (with video)
- A basic paint recipe to get you started
- Preparing your surface
- Instructions for a regular pour, a dirty pour, a flip cup and a swipe
- Tips on drying, cleaning and finishing your painting
- 4 exclusive videos to get you started
The guide includes a basic get started recipe that you can use with regular craft paints to take the guess work out of getting the right paint consistency. A video shows you exactly how to mix up the paints and get the right consistency for the perfect pours. I worked very hard and did a LOT of experimenting to work out what I think is the perfect beginner formula to be able to create cells in your painting without the need to use a torch.
