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.

Getting started with Acrylic Pouring EBook download. Beginners tips for acrylic pouring, swiping and more.

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.

  1. Can I download the ebook as many times as I need and to any devices? For example, if I download It to my mobile phone, could I do It further to my PC? Can I download it again and again? Thank you!

    1. Not at all. This is a PDF ebook so you download it to your computer immediately after paying. No shipping required 🙂

  2. Deby, get it translated into French, and possibly other languages by some one. You might find a translation service on the Internet. It seems that there is interest in many art forms in different countries.

    1. I did get the whole book translated into German but it hasn’t sold any copies, so I can’t really afford to go through that expense again without some sales to pay for it. I think it won’t really sell because people who don’t speak English won’t be visiting my site anyway.

      1. Hello from Denmark. 🙂 I´m a danish woman and have just read about this (in my world) new art form. Just joined your news letter too. I´m not a pro in your language, but I´ll surely do my best, to find out more of how to work with this beautiful new art. Love your site. I also have bought you e-book “Getting Started with Acrylic Pouring. Regards from Marianne.

  3. Are the supplies listed in your e-book available in the US. I use (and have a large stock of Golden fluid (liquid) acrylics. Will they work with the methods suggested in the book?

    1. Yes all the supplies are listed with US links where you can get them. The recipe in the book uses the standard acrylic paints though because this is what the majority of people use. I’ve never tried the fluid or high flow acrylics so can’t suggest the perfect recipe. It looks like mixing them about 1:10 with your pouring medium gives the correct ratio from what I have read.

    1. Absolutely they are, yes. You will find that everything in the UK costs more than the US, isn’t that always the case, but you can get everything you need. The book also includes UK links for all the materials.

    1. Je suis désolé, je ne parle pas ou j’écris en français assez bien pour pouvoir faire des vidéos ou un livre. J’espère que vous pourrez trouver un blog ou un groupe français qui peut vous aider.

  4. Will your course work for someone using house paint ?

    The closest art supply store is 225 miles away.

    Ordering online can take up to 2 weeks before delivery and the Post Office is 65 miles away, I get my mail once a week.

    1. You sound like you have similar supply issues to me here on the island. I have to wait 8 weeks+ for my supplies to arrive so I understand. My post office is a 2 hour trip as well. However, I have never used house paints for any of my paintings so I cannot give you any recipes or advice for how to work with those. I wouldn’t recommend the class if you only have access to house paints because I’m not able to predict how the recipes would work with them. Sorry.

      1. I hope you don’t mind me asking but you sound English yet you seem to live on a remote island – may I ask where this is? x

        1. I was born in the UK and lived near to Bristol for a long time, but after some time of travelling around, we have now settle in the Cayman Islands for more than 10 years now. It’s a British Overseas Protectorate, so it feels familiar and yet has better weather.

  5. Hi I’m from India and silicone, floteral are not available here neither they are shipped what to do any alternative for making cells

    1. You can get supplies from Amazon in India. Here is the right sort of silicone for example. Your local paint stores may have some sort of paint extender or conditioner which is similar to Floetrol but a different brand, or you can use a gloss medium which should be available in good art stores.

    1. Vous pouvez copier et coller le contenu du livre dans Google Traduction, mais le contenu vidéo n’est disponible qu’en anglais, car je ne parle pas suffisamment d’autres langues pour faire une vidéo. Pardon.

    1. That is not a brand I am familiar with, so I can’t give any exact recipe for that one. Sorry. But all acrylic paints seem to work well with this style of painting, providing you get them to the right consistency to pour.

  6. Hi, I am trying to find a cheap, minimal equipment list and I can’t find one anywhere!!!
    What are the basic things I need to do this?

    1. Sorry no, it’s just a digital version. Much of the value in the content comes from the links and the videos, and those wouldn’t work in a paperback book.
