Tutorial and tips for getting started with pouring paint at home

To get started on the adventure of pouring painting, you will need a few things.

In addition to fluid acrylic paints in the colors of your choice, you will need to have a suitable support such as a canvas or a wooden panel .

A pouring medium , which will provide the necessary fluidity, will also be essential.

Tutorial for preparing your acrylic pouring at home

Once you have gathered your materials, here are the main steps to follow to create a basic pouring painting:

  • Prepare your support by covering it with varnish or pouring medium to facilitate the flow of the paint.
  • Mix your acrylic colors with the medium in different containers.
  • Pour and flow the paint mixtures onto your support, alternating the shades.
  • Gently tilt your media in different directions to guide the movement of the colors.
  • Allow your creation to dry completely before displaying it, approximately 24 hours.

Variations of pouring painting for fun at home

Once you have mastered the basics of pouring painting, you can begin exploring more advanced techniques. Swipe, dirty pour or even flipcup will allow you to obtain even more breathtaking visual effects.

  • Swipe : This technique consists of spreading and sliding the paint on the support using a tool (plastic card, spatula, etc.). By “swiping” the surface, we create very aesthetic patterns of waves, vortexes or fluid lines.
  • The dirty pour : Also called "dirty pour", this variation involves pouring a first coat of paint, then deliberately adding one or more other colors on top. The resulting random mixtures give unique texture and depth effects.
  • The flipcup : This method consists of filling a container (often a cup) with several colors of paint, then turning it over on the support before gently lifting it. The paint then flows, creating very original circles and organic shapes.

But pouring paint is not limited to traditional canvases. 

Give free rein to your creativity by testing other original supports such as everyday objects, furniture or even clothing. Imagine the unique look you could get on a vase, a flower pot or a simple t-shirt!

Do you want to go even further in personalizing your creations? Add decorative elements , play with textures or even incorporate glitter for breathtaking effects. Your pouring paintings will become truly unique pieces, reflecting your style and personality.

You are now ready to embark on the exciting adventure of pouring paint! Whether you are a beginner or an experienced amateur, this creative technique will allow you to give free rein to your imagination.

Beyond the aesthetic result, pouring paint will also offer you a real moment of letting go and relaxation. Let yourself be carried away by the fluid movements of the colors and give free rein to your creativity. You will be amazed by the organic and unexpected compositions that will be born before your eyes.
