How to: Dutch Pour - Fire & Ice Edition
"A dutch pour is an acrylic pouring technique that uses air to manipulate the paints on a canvas. You can use a hair dryer, straw and lungs, or anything that blows air to make a dutch pour." -- acrylicpouring.com
Materials you will need:
- Classic Acrylic Pouring Paint Set
- Blow Dryer
Step 1: Set aside your canvas and select the following colors from your Classic Acrylic Pouring Paint Set.
- Lemon Yellow
- Sky Blue
- Cadmium Red
Step 2: Apply enough White pouring paint to cove the entire canvas, including the edges.
Step 3: Use a blow dryer to spread the paint evenly throughout the canvas.
Remember to cover the edges.
Step 4: Now we will begin the layer process.
First layer: Cadmium Red
Second Layer: Lemon Yellow
Third Layer: Cadmium Red
Step 5: Apply the same steps with the blue hues.
First layer: Ultramarine
Second Layer: Sky Blue
Third Layer: Ultramarine
Step 6: Pour White around and in between both puddles.
Step 7: Use the blow dryer to cover up the puddles.
Step 8: Spread the Ultramarine and Sky Blue towards the bottom right corner of the canvas. Continue spreading until your desired look.
Step 9: Apply the same technique to Cadmium Red and Lemon Yellow but towards the top left corner of the canvas. Continue spreading until your desired look.
Side note: Since we lost some of the blue tones, we applied one more layer of Ultramarine and Sky Blue with White surround the 2 colors to complete the look.
