ACRYLIC PAINT POURING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

Acrylic pouring is a technique that allows artists to create their unique artworks. It is simple, but some tricks and tips can help you get the best results. When you pour acrylic paint onto your canvas or board, it creates an effect similar to a watercolour painting. This technique can be used for a multitude of purposes, from abstract expression though to eye-catching marbling artworks

必要な物:

  •  デリバン・ポーリングメディウム(250mlのメディウムで、40x40cmサイズのボードをカバーします。

  • アクリル絵の具、またはアクリルインクでメディウムに色をつけます。

  • 木のボードや、アーティスト用の固い表面のボードなどを使います。

  • プラスチックコップ(10−20個)

  • プラスチックの手袋

  • クラフト用のスティック(かき混ぜ用)

  • Squeeze bottles (Derivan 136ml Refillables bottles are ideal)

  • 水準器、またはスマートフォンの水準器アプリ

TIP ONE


Mixing paint and medium in a 1:10 ratio is a good place to start. If you want a more opaque finish, use more paint. For lighter shades, add less paint. For heavier shades, add more paint. EXAMPLE: 90ml pouring medium with 10mls of colour

TIP two


Don’t be too rough when mixing the paint into the medium. Mixing slowly will prevent air bubbles from forming, which can end up in your work. When mixing paints, mix in small quantities and work with one colour at a time. If you’re making custom colors, pre-mix your paints first then mix with the pouring medium.

TIP three


Once your colours have been mixed, pour them into Derivan Refillable Bottles. These squeeze bottles are perfect tools for creating acrylic pouring techniques. Perfect for working with  a few different colours stops you from getting into a mess.

TIP four


水平を保ちましょう。

このテクニックをする上で、一番重要になってくるのは、水平を保つことです。基底材が水平を保っていないと、メディウムが流れ落ちてしまう可能性があります。水準器を使ったり、iPhoneのアプリ又は、Androidの水準器アプリを使って、基底材の表面が水平を保つように調節しましょう。(アップルコンパス、またはアンドロイドのバブルレベルなどのアプリ)

TIP five


Place the chosen surface on top of three plastic cups. This prevents the medium and paint from sticking to the worktable. You can also use reusable putty (eg Blutack) to secure the back of the chosen surface and bottom of the plastic cups. This will keep your surface level so it dries with a professional finish.
