The last painting swap was another massive success! We’ve been blown away by the awesome-ness there in the swap album.  There have been requests for us to organize another and we’re so excited to help organize one again! Details and dates below.

July 2019 swap details:

WHAT/SIZE: Every participant will make, send and receive a small painting as part of the swap.  We suggest commonly available canvas sizes such as 8 x 10 inch or 10 x 10 inches, on a stretched canvas.  The style is makers choice and can be anything that displays your creative point of view, but it should be an acrylic pouring style painting. It is encouraged that you take your swap partner’s preferences into account if they have given colors that they like or don’t like.

WHEN: Sign Ups start NOW and will close on June 30, 2019

WHERE: Everywhere! This swap is open to everyone. Each participant will be paired with a partner in their general area to keep shipping costs low. For those not in the US, we will do our best to match you with a painter in your own country. If you are willing to ship internationally you can say so when you sign up.

WHO: All acrylic pour painters are welcome! Please remember when joining any swap, your partner may have a different skill level. We offer helpful hints, technique-based tutorials, and videos to help you succeed. Because of our community atmosphere, you are able to get help and ask questions along the way via the Facebook group.

Price: $5 per SWAP.

And here’s how it will work:

The July Swap is open for sign ups until June 30th, 2019.  Once signed up you will be directed to a quick questionnaire to help us pair you with the perfect painting buddy.  Then it’s time for us to get to work partnering you with the perfect swap partner. After the swap, each participant is invited to share what they have received/exchanged on our community page for all to enjoy.

While waiting for your swap partners information, you can start to gather your materials and consider the style of painting you will make for your partner.  Swap partner information will be emailed by July 3rd, 2019. It is encouraged that you reach out to your partner after receiving their information to find out more “fun facts” about them.

All paintings are to be mailed by July 31st 2019.

Remember to take pride in your work by doing your best work, and finishing and presenting your painting nicely. Also, please think about how the person receiving this special package will feel when opening. Including a small treat or a notecard, is totally encouraged and will be much appreciated by your partner!

Why should you be part of the painting swap?

Who doesn’t love a handmade gift?! By joining the Swap, you will not only be exchanging paintings but you will be partnered with a painting buddy that shares your passion, understands your need for more paint and the joys of creating with color. Basically, someone who “get’s it”!

We welcome you to join our Facebook group where you can upload pictures, ask questions and meet other members, you can also share your work over on Instagram- we’ll be using the hashtag #pouringblog. You can follow us on Instagram here.

  1. I got a name and address for the May swap, but when I tried to e-mail the person back, it was returned. I informed you but never got another address or person to swap to. Do I have to pay the $5.00 again for the July swap?

  2. I would like to participate with the July 2019 swap.
    But a little hesitate since my first participation in the March 2019 swap left me a bit disappointed. My matched partner never sent a canvas and eventually stopped even replying to emails! She told me in the last email she has been very busy and attempted 3 pours for me and none turned out to her liking.
    She said she received mine and even had it on the wall. Never got a photo of that either.
    Did I just happen to get matched with a random mismatch? Do you think I should try again?

    1. Hey Darrell, this can happen. Sadly it’s not really in our control how the partner responds to the swap, but the majority of times it works out, so you were just a little unlucky. If you could email us at [email protected] we can do our best to make this right for you.
