Was up north with my friend Amanda and she wanted to know how to do a pour for a while now, so I decided to do a tutorial of the techniques of fluid painting, fluid acrylic mixing with the silicone, Floetrol, glue and distilled water. Plus, it was a perfect chance to be able to get some close up shots of the paint mixes for you all. I have started using some clear cups. Amanda used a swipe technique to make the cells occur more. The silicone really brings the cells out when swiping. Acrylic reacts to the silicone. I hope my mixes will help you too.
I use only regular gloss acrylic paints… Not matte.
