Manasa Priya here, back on India’s favourite craft blog – Itsy Bitsy with a DIY welcome board using the newly launched Pouring Medium.
I am a very frugal crafter, using all my art supplies dearly and sparse. That’s one of the many reasons I never tried acrylic pour before, even though it’s such a simple form of art. But, trust me when I tell you this is such a relaxing and addictive form of art that you wouldn’t stop with one project once you start POURING.
By the way, have you taken part in the blog challenge yet? It is simple, just use anything from the pouring art range and submit your entry and tag us.
There is a beautiful range of colors available in acrylics at Itsy Bitsy. I have chosen Plum Orchid, Cherry Tomato, Icy Blue and white this time.
So get your disposable cups and mix the acrylic paint and the pouring medium in 1:1 ratio. Make sure it is evenly mixed and there are no bubbles.
I took an MDF base and painted the it in the color Icy Blue.
Now comes the fun part of randomly pouring the colors of your choice. Always make sure you use complimentary colors so that they don’t mix into each other and become muddy.
Next, I took a straw and gently blew into each other to form patterns. Tilt the base a little so all the edges are evenly covered. Once done, place it over a even height base… So the excess would drip.
Let the pour cure for about 24 hours to completely dry.
Now, using the Fibre Texture paste and a stencil…I stencilled over the remaining portion.
I just love this texture paste with beautiful fibre in it. Adds a great dimension to your project.
One good thing about Little Birdie Texture Fibre Paste is that it dries in few minutes.
I hope enjoyed looking through the making of this fun fun project. Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
Until next time.. ❤
