Creating art is so super fun with DecoArt’s Paint Pouring Medium and paints because every single time the masterpieces come out so different. Depending on the colors of paints chosen for the making, the works can be used to decorate for themes (think holidays, sports teams, school colors, etc.). The one I am sharing in this article is for the holiday coming up next, Valentine’s Day! I used FIVE colors of paint so it is super awesome and festive. I am going to explain how I made it AND share tips for successful paint pouring too.
If you want, you can skip this whole post and get all of the details on my YouTube video!
Okay, Lets make it!
You will need the following supplies and materials:
- DecoArt Paint Pouring Medium
- DecoArt Americana Paints
- Craft Sticks for Mixing
- Small Throwaway Cups
- Board or Canvas Surface (Can be done on LOTS of things!)
- Pan or Container to Catch Paint
Pour each color of paint in a separate cup.
Add an equal amount of Pouring Medium to the cups and stir them up.
PUT ON GLOVES!
Hold the surface over the pan and pour the paints on it! It can also be rested on something at a slant. There are lots of ways this can be done so play around and experiment.
Pick up your surface and jiggle it around a bit to swirl the paints (IF DESIRED).
Wait. It takes a long time for the masterpiece to thoroughly dry. As it dries, it will change appearance a bit. It is like a magic reveal art!
MY BEST PAINT POURING TIPS:
- Use 4-5 colors of paint.
- Use the smallest plastic cups needed.
- Wear gloves.
- Be prepared for spills with paper towels.
- Allow plenty of drying time (in a cool temperature)
It is really FUN! Try it. Be sure to share your paint pouring adventures on social media and tag me on Instagram!
Cheers to Creating Valentine’s Day Decor!
