Ill have to look for Floetrol the next time Im out! It could be exactly what we need. Thanks again for the suggestion!

And, kittykill, its really fun! Just the simple act of dumping out the paint is so freeing! And, its a bit magical to see the cells form (even though I get the science, its still cool!).

I like this! Ive always wanted to try an acrylic pour with floetrol, i once made the mistake of trying it with just water and the colors were quite muddled. Well done!

Wow! Thank you! 

And, you will have a lot of fun with it! It's fun to just play around and get some unexpected color combos and patterns. I bet you'll really enjoy it!

Floetrol is on my shopping list! Will it cause less color mixing? If you try it, let me know Smiley

I went through the same things you did craftADDchick when trying this for the first time.

The Floetrol helped but I've seen people use nothing at all so I think it's all in the drying. I had cracking no matter what I used so I wrapped my pieces in plastic wrap (I tented it so it would not touch the piece of course) and let it dry over a week, at least. It totally helped.

I watched Myriam's Nature on Youtube. She has so many good tips! A lot of times she gets awesome cells without the torch. I also love her technique of manipulating the paint after the pour.

Also, I did a pour over the dried cracked pieces and they looked fine. If anything they are good practice canvases.

Thanks for the additional tips, curiousfae! I think that well have better luck the next time. It wont be as hot, and well have more space to lay them out to dry (my sister was still setting up her studio). Our attempt to cover the tub with plastic didnt seem to help, but if we used a different system, Im hopeful!

And, I thought cells were possible without a torch, so Im glad to hear that it really is (I dont have a torch here).

I am so glad you  experimented  with this series of work. I've often wondered what could be created using inexpensive supplies since often the tutorials advise expensive bits. Its lovely to see amazing results are possible with a bit of experimentation  and low cost supplies. This is now on my bucket list.

... it's very, very special because, if you can see, the numbers all go to eleven...

Eleven, theres definitely a lot of variability in the process! Mine were made in the heat of the summer, and I bet Id get less cracking now because theyd dry slower. Regardless, its a lot of fun, and waiting to see how they come out is part of the enjoyment:)
