I had a load of fun one day recently doing some acrylic flow painting, it is the best! Apart from the actual canvases, I tried picking up the paint that was wasted on the plastic, and I loved this one.


The tardis was painted separately and glued onto the background, then I pasted the whole thing onto a canvas and painted the sides. The tardis was still popping too much, so I washed it into the background with some watercolours.

So cool! I am itching to try this but a bit afraid of the mess I'm sure to make. One of these days when it's nice outside and I've got time to haul all the supplies out to the yard. Yours look great! I bet it is so fun to watch the cells form.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

it is such fun. You definitely do need to do it outside, but check out this too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTVC02Gn0bM I hate waste and this is a way to use up some of the waste paint.

Super cool! I have been fascinated by this technique, too, but concerned about the waste. Also, the to-try project list is pretty long, so it may be awhile before I get to this one. I definitely have some inspirations pinned and will be adding these!

These are awesome!  I esp love the Tardis one.  I really want to try acrylic pouring.  I'm afraid of how much a mess I will make.  I can get pretty sloppy.

I love the idea of doing the pour over freezer paper so the overflow can be used later. Here's a video of her letting it dry and turning it into strips of tape. It could be cut into sticker shapes, etc. So cool. Gives you an excuse to be as messy as possible, ha ha.

Beautiful!  I love how free form they are.  Each are so unique and interesting, but I think the turquoise and grey might be my favorite.  Smiley

These turned out so well! I tried to do some of these myself and I had a hard time with too many pinholes in the paint once it dried. I'm not sure why, but it was disappointing and I gave up. I will just have to look at everyone else's awesome pours in the future like these.
