Pour It

  I used watered down paint on this canvas, but there’s no reason you can’t pour ink as well.  (hmmmm I should try that).  This is such a fun fun technique!!  It’s very simple actually, if you use paint, just thin it down and put it in a cup of some kind and tip your canvas on end, and pour!  If you did it in a smaller version with ink, I’m thinking that an eye dropper would work.  I do hope you’ll take the time to play with this technique because it’s just so fun!  I wonder what else you could pour to make art?

    Pouring is great fun, I pour paint all the time. On my blog,I’m currently posting the steps I take to pour a painting. Eye droppers, squirt bottles work beautifully.

    Helen I’ll come see!! I used little cups to pour watercolours – worked okay for the first experiment!

Whats This All About

Each week a new challenge will be posted. Your task is to then go create!!! When you're done, upload a photo of it to your own blog or website. Then post a comment here with a link to your photo so that we can all see what you've created. WARNING: THIS IS A FLOURISH FREE ZONE!!!!! I love flourishes just as much as the next artist, heck, I've even got one tattooed on the top of my left foot. However, flourishes seem to be IN everyone's box these days. Since this is an OUT of your box challenge, lets refrain from using them for these challenges.
