Pour Painting – The Stools

Fluid Painting / Pour painting is amazing! I could sit and watch the videos all day.  My first attempt was the tissue box and it came out great.  (In my opinion!)  All of my sisters have birthday in January.  I thought they would each like a stool with the top poured.

First I sanded, stained and applied varnish to the stools, except for the top.  For the top,  I applied a coat of white primer.  After the top dried for a couple of days, I wrapped the stools in a plastic bag (except for the top) and tape around with bottom edge with blue painter’s tape.

The first stool, I used metallic acrylic paint that came in the 2oz bottles.  But, first a applied a thin layer of white metallic paint.  I applied each color separately.  After a lot of tilting and tapping, this was the result.

The second stool, I used acrylic glitter paint.  I had the idea, but I first asked my sister “if they considered themselves a glitter family.”  The paint was applied the same way as the first stool.  White glitter paint first, then each color.

I finished the stools by adding several coats of polyurethane.
