They are Finished

Yes, in August I poured these painting.  Yes, in November I finally pour resin over these paintings.  Now, they are ready to be hung or given away as gifts.  No, I am not giving them away.

I did not realize that this painting appears to flow towards the center, until I took a picture of it.

Acrylic Pour Coaster

I been wanting to create some Acrylic Pour Coasters for a while.  I purchased 4″ wood tiles from Michael’s and they traveled with me in my car for several months before a was able to work on them.

First, I applied white Gesso to both sides of the wood tile.   I mixed the paint in squeeze bottles.  The colors I used were pink, purple, grayish blue, light pink, light purple, green and white.  I love pinks and blues.

I let the tiles cure for about a month while I was out of town again. I cleaned the tiles with a mixture of Dawn and water, which I keep in a spray bottle.  A few weeks later when I got up the courage to apply resin, I poured resin over the coasters.

The tiles did not come out perfect, but it wasn’t a failure either.  The tray to hold the tiles was purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I stained the inside of the box and two sides.  The other two sides I applied Gesso and did a pour on the sides. 

I did not pour the inside of the tray, instead I cut out some white polymer clay and did a pour on top of the clay when I poured the tray sides.  After I cleaned the tray, I glued the clay to the bottom and applied several coats of varnish.

I glued cork to the back of each coaster using wood glue.  Below are the results.

Good Morning…

Good morning! Would you like to see something pretty? My latest fluid painting.

And, something prettier. Done with neon paint.

Below it is under a black light.

I think I like it better shown under normal like.

Okay, no Wow!

This is one of my pour painting I did yesterday.  I looked at it and thought; that is interesting, it Okay.  Not really what I was expecting.

Then I decided to put it under a black light, because I did use neon acrylic paint.  And the results were Wow!  The black light picture did not pick up all the detail.  You can see the layer of yellow and the blue and pinks hidden beneath the white.

Agree or Disagree

This pour painting was done on a round canvas. I have been trying to decide if I should add something to it; like a mandala or flowers or….

I posted a picture of it in one of the Acrylic Pour groups and the responses was: leave it along; they like it as is; don’t mess it up. What do you think? If you disagree with them, do you have any suggestions?
