Acrylic pouring is an interesting and fun way of painting with fluids. What makes it different from other artist paint is its pourable consistency. Get your acrylic pouring paint set from Art to Art and start experimenting with an abstract art style that will challenge and delight!

So, how do I create art with fluid acrylic paint? Basically, you pour the paint from your acrylic pouring kit onto your medium. Then, using painting sticks or heat from a blow torch, you move the paint around until you're satisfied with how it looks. You can also add extra silicone oil to create stunning cell-like patterns. Leave it to dry for 24 hours and you've got yourself a completed work of art!

An acrylic pouring paint set makes fluid art super easy for beginners! The colours come premixed and are complementary, so all you need to do is set up your canvas or surface, then pour them! Just make sure you have something underneath to catch any excess paint. Once you’ve got a hang of paint pouring, you can watch some YouTube tutorials to experiment and improve your technique.
What do you need for pouring acrylics?
Apart from the paints, other art supplies you'll need are:
board or canvas,
Some cups to layer your paints into
Some disposable gloves to keep your hands clean
Some wooden painting sticks
Some acrylic mediums and varnishes like gesso
A heat gun or hair dryer
And a willingness to experiment!
You can often use tools that are in your DIY kits or things you might have lying around the house, so get creative. Remember, once you've gotten your paints onto the canvas, you'll need about 24 hours for it to dry. Ignore your drawing sets for the day and get pouring. Have fun!
