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:
- For best result & right consistently use Little Birdie Acrylic Pouring Paints with Little Birdie Pouring Medium.
- Wear disposable gloves while working on acrylic pouring art.
- Use disposable cup & popsicle stick to mix the colors with the medium.
- Pour & spread the base color generously, this will help the colors to spread & run easily all over the base.
- Acrylic pouring paint + pouring medium should be mixed in 1:1 ration to get a perfect consistency.
- The paint should be runny in consistency not in dripping consistency.
- Do not work under the fan. This tends to dry the pouring paint+pouring medium mixture quicker than you want.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
To add extra volume & a glossy effect, I have spread a layer of Little Birdie clear resin on top.
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.
Now take finished project and stick the framed base at the bottom & the Lord Ganesha idol on top.
