I purchased some wood squares from Michael’s. I was going to create fluid art on them and make coasters. I have multiple sets of fluid art coasters so I decided to sand and stain the squares while I was staining my desk. I used acrylic paint markers for the designs and sealed the squares with gloss polycrylic.
I am not sure what to do with these. I may still make coasters out of them. Coaster work better if they are sealed with resin. Which is still possible, because resin work better when the surface is sealed.
These painting were done on 14 inch canvases. I like how the green and yellows break through the paintings. The mixture for all the colors were the same: 1 part acrylic paint, 2 parts Floetrol, 1/10th water, 2 drops silicon.
These fluid paintings were done on 14″ canvases. Many different colors were used to create these. The mixture for all the colors were the same: 1 part acrylic paint, 2 parts Floetrol, 1/10th water, 2 drops silicon.
Here are four paintings that I poured together on 8 inch wood panels. Numerous colors were used to create these painting. The mixture for all the colors were the same: 1 part acrylic paint, 2 parts Floetrol, 1/10th water, 2 drops silicon.
Another three house painted from my Rescued Houses series. Why are they called “Rescued Houses.” In August 2016, South Louisiana had what some believed to be a 1000 year flood. The storage unit which held these houses flooded. These plaster houses were in water for over week. There is minor damage to all the houses, but that may add to their charm.
Notice the Railroad Crossing sign. It is not original to the house. The original sign is currently missing, which means it could be in another box. Therefore, I created the sign in Tinkercad, printed with my 3D printer, and painted the sign. I only had to print one sign, because I got the measurements right on the first design.
Since Christmas is over and all presents should be unwrapped, I can share other set of coaster I did for a Christmas present. I did a fluid painting over each coaster, used a scraper to swap each coaster, and sealed them with resin. Cork was placed on the back. What I learned; taping is difficult.
Okay, the wait is over. The presents were wrapped, shipped, received and opened. Now, I can share them on my blog. Below is a set of coasters I made from my mom. I did a pour painting on top of 4″ wood tile.
