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.
