Students will be given a successful formula to prepare acrylic paint for use in acrylic pours. Examples will be shown and the uncontrolled aspects of the pours will be discussed. Two pour techniques will be demonstrated at the beginning of the workshop. Then students will explore and create three of their own acrylic pours (one 8” x 8”, one 5”x 4” and one 4” x 4”) to take home and marvel over! It is quite addictive and fun, some even find it relaxing.
