The Acrylic Pouring bug not only has me hooked, but hubby has caught the bug as well!  If you read the last article I wrote you will know he helped me tremendously with getting started, getting set up and of course spending money! Because: buy all the stuff!

But now it’s his turn to learn! He really liked how my first pour came together, you can read about it here An Acrylic Pouring Beginning, and wanted to outshine me! Challenge accepted! If it’s gonna be a competition, he only gets the supplies I had for my first pour! Take that mon concurrent! 

He started with the same cheap paints from the dollar store, nothing new was purchased, just used the leftovers, hah! 

But, he used a marvelous amount of the “RainX”  where as I just used a few drops. 

He chose to use a flat canvas vs the stretched canvas I had used, we purchased both styles in the very first run for supplies. 

The gloves I had didn’t fit his manly hands, so he had to bring his own to the competition.

Ready?

Set.

Pretty colors! 

How does he do that? 

Look at that! I’m jealous already! 

Wow! That is turning out amazing!

Methinks the student has become the master! 

He applied a little flame and look at those cells POP!!!  

Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!! 

 This is seriously impressive!

He got incredible cells!

Gotta be Beginners Luck! 

Okay, okay I concede.  

Yeah, he did an astounding job on his first pour! But wait!  I’m not gonna concede just yet! Let’s have a VOTE!  

You all decide which first pour is better, and the loser has to buy dinner! Sound like a plan? 

Vote for Hubby

Or Vote for me!

You all get to decide!!

In the meantime, there were some awesome suggestions in my first article as to what to do with white, black and gray paint, and we’ve got some exciting pours to share in the very near future! 

God Bless!

  1. It’s really difficult to choose between you. Hubby’s has that lovely olive green to it and the colours are just a touch sharper and vibrant. Sorry, but his just pops!

  2. Vote for hubby. But that’s a personal choice of aesthetics for balance and color dominance placement.

    1. RockenGranny,
      That is an excellent observation. I like how you think!
      Thank you!

    1. Gwendolyn,
      You got this!!!
      Maybe teach him first! Show him what hubby did!
      Sometimes we learn more by teaching than studying!

  3. Love those cells (what is Rainex?) I live in Australia so maybe we call it something else – I tried pure silicone spray from the auto store but think I could do better.
    PS Hard to choose but think I have to go with the big beautiful cells this time.

    1. Hi Sue!
      This is from their website:
      “Rain‑X® Original Glass Water Repellent dramatically improves wet weather driving visibility. Simply apply the treatment to exterior glass and watch the raindrops fly off your windshield while driving. Rain‑X helps improve visibility by repelling rain, sleet and snow.”
      Hubby Says Thank you!

  4. 5 to 1 for Hubby! Looks like I’ll be buying dinner! OUCH!
    Maybe I’ll wait a few days to see if we get more comments!
    Here’s to hoping!

  5. I’m voting for your hubby. Not just because I love his painting, luck or not but, because he actually participated! I try to tell mine all the time, you pay for all the stuff why don’t you try these things with me too? He just says “Nope, doesn’t look like fun that’s your hobby not mine!” Well, I guess that’s fine because I don’t go fishing with him so he stays out of my craft room. lol. I guess that’s how we’ve gotten along 26 years together. I am kinda jealous of you though. I do love both your paintings. I do have something to ask you about though… RainX??? Please tell me more! I had no idea and if I missed a previous post about it I apologize in advance. xx Giamarie from Carson City NV

    1. Thank you Giamarie!
      Maybe there is an activity you’d both enjoy?
      From the RainX Website:
      “Rain‑X® Original Glass Water Repellent dramatically improves wet weather driving visibility. Simply apply the treatment to exterior glass and watch the raindrops fly off your windshield while driving. Rain‑X helps improve visibility by repelling rain, sleet and snow.”
      Been using it on my windshield for eons, and heard a lot of people are using it for acrylic paint pouring, so thought I’d give it a go!

    2. Rochelle, do you use the rainX as the pour medium then or as an additive for the cells?

    3. Hi Giamarie,
      As an additive for the cells.
      So far, we’ve used Mod Podge or
      white PVA glue as the pour medium.
      Thanks for asking!
