High Flow Acrylic – Danny Clark

With my continued acrylic play I have discovered that pouring medium is just an absolute mess.  I have seen some people demonstrate the process.  While I am not one to hold back on making a mess, I do find there is a tremendous waste.  I still do enjoy playing with the process, but my color pallet has not dialed in just yet.

Yesterday I made this little 5X5 pour with a couple of different inspirations.  One inspiration from the process of Ebru Art.

Ebru art is a fabulous painting process and creates beautiful patterns that remind me of afghan blankets.  When I was a kid, my grandmother would crochet afghan blankets.  I remember having one most of my childhood.  These were super comforting, but when it was cold, your toes would stick through the yarn, so it wasn’t the best thermal application.

I tried to capture most of the process in a video on my YouTube Channel.  It was fun but I have a little more work before I commit any larger piece to the process.  If you have any hints or tips please feel free to let me know.  I am always open to new ideas.
