(168) Acrylic Pour Painting - The Dutch Technique - Fluid Art on Canvas



hey everybody Gina DeLuca here gonna try something different today I had of your comment and asked me about the Dutch border I didn't know what that was so I looked it up Rinka downa is the person who I've seen posting about the Dutch poor and what it appears to be is kind of a reverse swipe over a puddle poor with very thin paint and it gives a very almost like alcohol ink type effect she uses a blow dryer with one of these attachments I have four blow dryers in this house and many of these attachments and none of them fit except on my very very good hairdryer that I got for hair school and I cannot sacrifice that hairdryer for art so I will be using my hair compressor I haven't set pretty high to like 45 psi I will see if that is too much or too little and I do have it on a lazy susan here so that I can just easily turn it colors I have phthalo blue with golden I know this stuff is expensive but with this technique I'm not using a whole lot of paint so this was basically a little slightly bigger than a pea maybe like the size of an edamame bean and then I mixed it with two parts float raw and my 90% water 10% float all mix until I got the consistency of about what I would do for a poor when it drizzles off of your stick it does not make a mound that got a little bit thick so we had family a blue and green shade we have the phthalo green in blue shade these two colors together are just magical I mean I love these two colors together I also threw in some dioxis in purple by basics and some old gold by artist loft this is gonna be a very Mardi Gras colored painting I think okay so let's lay down a base coat this is just artist loft white and flow acrylic rings gonna use a titanium white which is different than the flow white titanium white actual titanium white is much heavier so I don't know if that's gonna make a difference I'm just gonna see what happens when we do it this way let's experiment okay my base coat is down I'm gonna hit it with a torch to pop any bubbles I don't always show this but I always do this if you don't when you torch it at the end the bubbles that are in your white will come up through your colors and then you wind up with those little white cells unless you're going for a galaxy pore then that might actually work out perfectly then you can use that to your advantage all right I have left some white as a reserve because you're going to do a puddle of white around your colors and this is not going to require a lot of paint because you want a wispy effect all right let's pour a puddle when rinse could did this she did a much smaller puddle in the center okay and then back out okay well that's pretty that looks like a flower I would really like to try this again with just that green and blue maybe the some gold or silver I just these colors together are just stunning to me and I actually I have enough paint to do another one hmm okay let's hit the center with a torch bit well I am pleased with this that is very pretty if viewed from this way for you guys to me this looks like an iris perhaps when it dries I will embellish the center a bit or something maybe we'll see but for now this is it I dig it I really like this technique and I think I'm going to try it again right now because I have some paint left over so tune in tomorrow for another attempt at this I will try it with less paint to get more of that wispy effect but for the first shot I'm pretty happy with it I hope you guys liked it I will clean up first that's why I was chasing his tail right now and he keeps attacking the the drop cloth so I'm gonna clean up I'll bring you in a break close-up okay here it is that's a cool cell action even though there is no massage me there's no silicone in here this is all due to the rayleigh-taylor effect third instability I should say yeah if you look that up it's it's basically a law of fluid dynamics and that is what gives you cells with no silicone that is the basis behind straight board rayleigh-taylor I'll put it down in the description box anyhoo please like and share and subscribe and all that good stuff do check out the description box below for links to my PayPal tip jar if you feel so inclined my amazon store anything that you purchase off the entire site of Amazon I receive a small commission of at no additional cost to you also go make some art join us on Facebook post your masterpieces ask your questions and my website Gina de Luca dotnet you can purchase my paintings my music and basically check out what I'm up to there all right you guys that is it for me I hope you enjoyed I hope you have a beautiful day now go make some art
