Seas of Summer

by Scuff Scotch


I was very inspired to do an ocean-related picture and had to figure out a good way to make what I wanted work. I mixed floetrol and acrylic paint as I usually would for all the blues and blacks I used in the picture, however when I mixed the white, I made sure to make it especially thin and watered down.

I did a flip cup with the thicker colors mentioned, then poured white around that and used a scraper tool to push all the thin white on top of the rest of the paint. After that, I just used a torch and it worked perfectly to get that ocean effect!

Here is What Julie Says about this pour:

“Seaglass” an acrylic flip cup pour using glue and water as my pouring medium and treadmill silicone for cells. I mixed my paints a little thinner for this pour, layered the paint in cups, and flipped them onto my canvas. I tilted the canvas to get the surface covered, then torched lightly to bring the cells up.

Love Bridges Worlds

By Linda King


Linda Says:

This is a 6 flip cup pour with blue and white alternating layers in each cup(bottom layer blue, white, blue, top white). Each cup used a different hue of blue from light to darker.


After flipping each cup I would pull the cup toward me to help drag the paint into the elongated layers on the canvas, then tilted to give the layers a sense of undulating movement. There is a drop of silicone in each of the blue colors but not the white!

Deep Sea Coral

By Bobbi Willmer


Bobbi’s Comment:

It was part of this series called “Treasure Falls”. Many comments compared to the artist Gustav Klimt. The technique used was a swipe with a damp paper towel. I used floetrol and a bit of Liquitex gloss medium and varnish.

Underwater Life

By Sheila Eichele


A few Words by Sheila:

“Ring pour with hand-painted freehand jellyfish.

I used 3 colors all mixed with glue and water. White, cobalt blue, and aqua blue.

I layer my cup with several layers. That gives it the fine lines.”

      I noticed this as well and was hoping itnaas just a mistake whwn uploading.

  1. I have just become aware of paint pouring now–I tried it years ago. There was no information and mostly it was just a big mess. I am absolutely mesmerized by this art form today. I love the ocean and all of the pours are soooo beautiful!!

  2. Hey there,
    I tried ocean pours myself.
    Everything seems to be working. Except my white turns purple when it dries. Does anyone know why this is?

    I use Byron brand acrylic paints and Floetrol.
    I mix my own blues using a warm/cool blue and adding some yellow here and there.

    But I really don’t understand why my white becomes a bright purple when dry! If it would dry a light blue I would just think that the color is too transparent. But in this case I don’t know. I have been mixing 1/2 paint 1/2 floetrol and a dash of water. I also tried adding more paint in it. But still hasn’t worked.

    Any hint would be much appreciated.
    Thank you
