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.
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!
Let’s see, where to start? Ah yes, the introduction: My name is Rochelle Freeman and I live in Sunny, Windy, Hot, Cold, Dry, Don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes Desert of Southern California in the good old U S of A.
The Love of My Life and I met when I was in High School, and we’ve been happily married 36 years. (Shhhh don’t try to guess my age, that’s not polite!) During the weekdays, I work for a paycheck, gotta pay for that crafty stuff somehow! During the afternoon hours I tend to the farm critters and the house. Somewhere in there I manage to squeeze in a minute or two of creativity.
When I was 6 years old, the woman who lived next door to me introduced me to working with resin, crochet, & knitting. The woman who lived on the other side of her, introduced me to sewing. In 3rd grade, we were blessed to have a teacher that was very crafty, and had us doing every conceivable art within the scope of 3rd grade, even to the extent of having us use knives to carve apples!
By adulthood, I had taken every available craft, art, & photography class, and even a wood shop class or two! As a grandmother, I continued to learn new handicrafts, and enjoy teaching them to others.
