Have you tried a puddle pour yet? They are incredibly satisfying to create. Many times I’m so excited by how cool the initial phase of the puddle pour is—that I leave it and don’t continue the process of swiping with a finger or craft stick and tilt. One of my (many) challenges is that I tend to stick to the same palette over and over again. I do it because I have favorite colors that I gravitate towards. Today I wanted to branch out so I selected a color palette from Pinterest that I would normally never use. Quite frankly I find these colors boring and ugly.
So making my judgy self take a backseat today, I decided to do a pour using these colors with the intention of adding a hand painted embellishment on top of the pour—WHILE STILL WET!
Supplies I used:
- Arteza Acrylic Paint in Mars Brown, Violet, Mars Black, Titanium White, Magenta Light, Raw Sienna
- KY True Feel
- Solo Cups
- Craft Sticks
- Paint Brush
Stick around folks, grab an adult beverage and let’s see how it turns out.
Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed watching the video. We fast forwarded for your enjoyment—translation: so you didn’t die of boredom while watching a 45 minute video. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to share similar puddle pour/embellishment projects.
Here is a photo of the final piece. Sorry, but I failed to record myself adding the snow because I didn’t know I was going to do it. I just looked at it hanging on the wall while I was wondering if it was finished or not, and the next thing I knew I had a stiff scruffy paint brush in my hand and I was dotting the trees and land with white paint. It’s definitely a departure from what I normally do, but I think it turned out ok. What do you think?
