I've wanted to try this technique for AGES and finally decided to jump in. I started small: three tiny 4x4" canvases.

It was a lot of fun! But it also left a lot of paint in the bleed off. I try not to be wasteful so I grabbed a pack of blank white Tasha's and started dipping! I think the tags my be my favorite part. The colors and cells are so deliciouly pretty.

In the end I also added a butterfly in white India ink to finish off the canvas.









There were 21 tags in all, each unique. The tags went to Wulf and the canvas to Cabaute for the recent Happy Mail Swap.

It's beautiful!  Do you mind sharing how you did it?

I have searched and searched but I can't find the exact video I watched (which sucks because it was a good one.) There are a number of different ways to do acrylic pouring. Some archival. Some not. Some cheap and easy. Some expensive and involved. The results above are from a dirty pour with several different colors. My paint mixture was part flotrol, part paint, a little bit of water. Then I added a few drops of silicon liquid to each paint cup and mixed before adding them to the main dirty pour cup. If you search for "Acrylic Pour" on youtube, you'll find a ton of videos. Oh and I didn't use a torch with my canvases or tags. Hope that helps!

Thank you for your detailed answer, but I don't think I'll be trying it.  It sounds so involved!
