Acrylic Paint Pouring
In this messy, experimental class, we’ll explore the fun and very addicting technique of “dirty pours” and “flip cup” acrylic pours. The results look like marble or even planets, when poured onto circular supports. Learn how to create “cells” within your pours.
This class includes a ton of paints, pouring mediums and several supports (canvases, etc.), so you will definitely get your money’s worth. You will finish the session with at least 3 finished pieces.
