  1. i love fluid acryllic painting but i want to merge my other artwork techniques. i was wondering if anyone knew the best way to isolate fluid acryllic painting to sections of the canvase? can i just cover the other sections i dont want painted in tape? how effective is that? whats the best material to use to cover? would mean so much to me if someone was able to help me?

      Contact paper works well to isolate the part of the canvas you don’t want covered in paint.

    2. You could also do a pouring on Freezer Paper (at most grocery stores). Let it dry completely. It peels off easily and you can easily “edit”,cut in shapes desired too. Then use gloss or matte medium to adhere to the canvas or paper (always both sides), before or after your other techniques. ( After worked for me so I could move around the pouring to test out placement.) This has worked for me many times. This method also allows you to see the underside of the pouring, which sometimes is even more interesting then the topside! It is very easy to do and you waste much less paint because you can use the left over pieces for other projects.

  2. I want to do a pour on glass, how do I prepare the glass for the pour, so that the paint clings to the glass

    1. Is like to know this as well. I have a large glass piece I want to pour on.

    2. Clean the glass and then pour. It will stick just fine just like it does to ceramic tiles. Try doing on picture frame glass. When dry you will have a frame all ready to hang. Cheers
