The remains must go! Casting acrylic is always a coincidence. Nevertheless, I usually try to create a certain composition in my pictures. Today, however, coincidence again decides what kind of picture arises. I had already done so in December and was surprised by the result.

Therefore, I was quite excited today which image would arise.

Where do the remains of acrylic casting come from?

They are left over from my Pourings, I collect them covered with foil and today it was time, everything in the cup, sometimes with, sometimes without silicone and see what happens.

Have fun watching and pouring yourself and thanks for your feedback.

best regards


What do you need for acrylic pouring / fluid painting?

In acrylic pouring or fluid painting, diluted acrylic paints are cast on the canvas using various techniques. This results in quite random results. Every picture is unique.

1. acrylic paint

We need artists acrylic paints, here there is no fixed brand. You can use what you like here. Acrylic paints from brand companies usually have a thicker consistency and therefore lower consumption. Cheap brands are often thinner, you need a little more color.

I use different brands, look for what suits you and your wallet. Possibly. you have to adjust my Pouring recipe, which comes down below with your acrylic paint something.

2. The Pouring Medium

The Pouring Medium ensures that the acrylic paint is fluid and pourable. There are now many varieties here. I myself use Liquitex because even without silicone oil beautiful cells are possible.

3. Water

Only acrylic paint and casting medium is usually not enough, the color must be made a little more liquid, but I use normal tap water. At the end, the ready-mixed color should flow evenly off the stirring tool like warm liquid honey.

4. silicone oil

Silicone oil is used to get nice big cells. The silicone oil only in colorful colors, not in black or white. Add 3 - 5 drops / puffs of silicone oil to the ready - mixed colors and stir only briefly - one to three times. There are different consistencies I use cst 400.

5. Final treatment

If the pictures have dried after about 3-5 days, the acrylic paint will not shine as well as when wet. To restore this shine, use the Pouring Medium. But you can also use special gloss varnish to create even more shine.

Otherwise you only need a canvas in its preferred size and a few cups to touch the colors.

My acrylic pouring recipe

1 part color
1 part Pouring Medium
1/2 part of water

!!! Important, the canvas must first be primed with Acrylic Pouring Medium or paint, otherwise the edges absorb too much paint.

Cast acrylic - quantity calculation
How much color is needed for his canvas?

Approximately 0.3 grams per square centimeter, this is the complete mixture meant. Suppose you have a canvas of 40 x 40 cm = 1600cm2. Calculation 1600 x 0.3 grams = 480 grams of complete mixture so all colors, pouring medium and water added up.

For a 40x40 cm two-color image, the mix looks like this:

Rounded up to 500 grams so that no later color is missing:

100 g of colorful paint
100 g of fluid medium
50 g of water

100 g white color
100 g of fluid medium
50 g of water

On the bottles is usually a milliliter indication, you can take that in grams, 250 ml color is not exactly 250 g, but the difference does not matter.
