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 
  • Canvas
  • Blow Dryer

Let's begin!

Step 1: Set aside your canvas and select the following colors from your Classic Acrylic Pouring Paint Set.
            - Ultramarine
            - 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.
