Our Facebook Group has almost 90,000 members with hundreds of posts each day. We’re amazed at all the work artists like you are creating and wanted to share some of the highlights. Our staff has searched through the group and picked the top 10 pouring posts from the last month based on likes and comments (and what we could find).
We were impressed with the variety of pours that were popular with the group, as well as the variety of skill levels. While most artists below have had years of experience, there were some that were just beginners which created some incredible work. That’s something we can all appreciate about Acrylic Pouring – at any skill level you can create something breathtaking with a little inspiration and luck!
In the future we hope to share more of your artwork, so if you’d like us to share what you post then please use the hashtag #pouringblog. This can help us know that you’re willing to allow us to share your work, as well as help us search through posts. This is the first time we’ve created a post like this and we’d love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think in the comments!
- Cloud Effect Pour
For this pour, I used 2 parts Floetrol, 1 part Liquitex pouring medium and 1 part water as my pouring medium. I then used 3 parts of this pouring medium to 1 part Liquitex Basics paints. I then added 25% of the Decoart satin enamel white paint to my Liquitex Basics paints to give me the cloud effect. If you are using thinner paints, you will need to use less pouring medium to get your mix to the correct consistency.

My biggest tip would be using a piece of scrap cardboard folded to act as a corner guard when you don’t want to lose all your paint off the side! ☺️???????? yay for recycling lol

4. Skull Interior
Artist: Brian Quinn
5. Blue Horse
First try at this technique. It is basically a negative technique after the pour. I poured on a 18×24 inch canvas. After it was dry I sketched my horse. I then painted the background black. I then used acrylic paint to emphasize the features of the horse.

My friend drew out the Octopus on the plywood and I did the rest. Wasn’t as easy as I thought to pour the paint and move it around without crossing over a leg and messing it up. So I decided to just do whatever and go with it.

After being told in high school that she was so bad at art that she should switch to another subject, Deby didn’t paint again for 35 years. Then a stroke released a new wave of creativity and she began exploring with dot painting, abstract and eventually acrylic pouring, and at last the joy of working with color returned. You don’t need ‘talent’ to be an acrylic pouring artist – just enthusiasm, some basic instruction, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. Paint along with her and learn from her many mistakes, and you’ll soon make great art together.
