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.

Did you use the liquid varnish only in the white? Do you still have to seal it? Blessings, Lin
I have been trying my hand at Acylic pouring, and have been getting better after making mistakes. I haven’t tried adding Varnish to give it a sheen. Would love some tips on using it as a pouring meium.
You didn’t mention what kind of bait you are using, meaning what brand. That would be nice to know.
Those tubes look like Monte Marte
I’m a new acrylic pourer and finding some recipes quite expensive , is there any alternatives to the Sheerart recipes instead of wood and metal base C and polycrylic ? Thanks Karen Hemstock UK
You can paint on almost any surface using house paint. You may need to thin some with small amounts of water. Test on paper or glass instead of the surface you are painting on.
