Great craft for all ages, one that can be quite simple or more sophisticated techniques can be used.
Then go get your supplies and have them handy to turn any rainy day into a hole lot of messy fun creating unique art.
The Dirty Pour
Things are about to get messy, as artists embrace a new form of completely utensil-free painting. Known as dirty pouring, it involves mixing multiple paint colors in the same container before pouring on canvas or other materials. Here’s why we think it’s the bomb: The paints mix as they leave the cup, blending the colors and creating unexpected colors and ultra-cool effects. You can even do a double dirty pour (a blend of blues and greens in one cup; reds and yellows in another-for instance). Cheers to that!
Acrylic Paints-At least 3 colors
Pouring Medium-Floetrol, Liquitex, GAC800
