Multi-Layered Ganesha Wall Panel

Hello creatives, 

Roopashree here! I am back with yet another spectacular project with Little Birdie Acrylic Pouring Paints. 

As the festival season is on & Ganesha Chaturthi is drawing close, I thought of making a wall panel using a Lord Ganesha idol and fluid art technique.

Before starting with the project, a brief introduction about pouring paint art, tips & tricks.

Acrylic pouring art has been known by many names like fluid art, liquid art or acrylic pouring art, this is a painting technique where acrylic paint is mixed with a type of pouring medium and then poured onto a surface in a variety of ways. Pouring art is so much fun! This form of abstract art has endless creative possibilities. 

Tips & Tricks:

  1. For best result & right consistently use Little Birdie Acrylic Pouring Paints with Little Birdie Pouring Medium.
  2. Wear disposable gloves while working on acrylic pouring art.
  3. Use disposable cup & popsicle stick to mix the colors with the medium.
  4. Pour & spread the base color generously, this will help the colors to spread & run easily all over the base.
  5. Acrylic pouring paint + pouring medium should be mixed in 1:1 ration to get a perfect consistency.
  6. The paint should be runny in consistency not in dripping consistency.
  7. Do not work under the fan. This tends to dry the pouring paint+pouring medium mixture quicker than you want.
  8.  Dry it naturally. It will take 24 to 48 hours depending on the thickness and layers of colours used. Apply varnish only after the colours have dried completely.
  9. Use Little Birdie clear resin which gives volume & glossy effect to the project.

Let’s get started with the project.

Step 1 :

Take four square MDF bases – size 12″x12″, 10″x10″, 8″x8″, 6″x6″ & one circle with 4″ diameter.

Stick all the bases (except the 12″ x12″, we will use it later) one above the other in descending order & the circle base on top as shown in the image. Let it dry.

Step 2 :

Choose any pouring paint colors of your choice, dilute the paints with pouring medium in a ratio of 1:1 in disposable cups separately. Mix them well with popsicle sticks. Here, I have taken Cherry Tomato, Black Pepper, Pearl White, Grassy Green, Timeless Teal & Tinted metallic paint color Golden Glaze to add a shimmery effect.

step 3:

Take the base you have prepared & pour Black Pepper color & spread it with a palette knife covering the base generously with a coat of paint. This will help the pouring paint to spread onto the surface easily.

Step 4:

Take a disposable cup & add all the colors in layers & pour it on the base in a swirl technique. Keep tilting & rotating the base to spread the colors all around.

 

Place it on an elevated object so that the excess paint drips down. Let it dry naturally. 

Step 5:

To add extra volume & a glossy effect, I have spread a layer of Little Birdie clear resin on top.

Step 6:

To give a finished & complete look take the 12″ X12″ base, frame it with wooden beading & paint it with black gesso. Rub some metallic wax on it.

likewise take an idol of Lord Ganesha, paint with Black gesso & rub it with metallic wax.

Step 7:

Now take finished project and stick the framed base at the bottom & the Lord Ganesha idol on top.

Here are some clicks of the finished project.
