I have been fascinated with the paint pour artwork trend that has been floating around the creative community. Some talented artists are creating gorgeous works of art by strategically pouring paint to canvasses. I decided to a little small-scale art of my own, using 4×4 glazed tiles as my canvas.
Watch this video to see my experiments with paint pour art. If you like this video, check out my whole YouTube channel. I release two new videos each week, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on anything.
My experiments taught me a few things:
- The paint has to have the right viscosity for this to work properly. Choose a thinner, runnier paint than standard craft paint for best results.
- Paint pour art is MESSY! Make sure you have your work surface covered and paper towels available before you start working.
- Because you will end up with a thick layer of paint on your final project, be sure to build in plenty of dry time before moving your finished works of art.
If you do any experiments of your own, I would love to see them! Post a picture on social media and tag me, I am madincrafts across all social media.
