Poured Painting - Cell Magic"
Cells are the circular designs caught within the right concoction of a specific pouring technique.
In this one-day workshop you will learn how to mix acrylic paint to use in fluid painting, also called pouring. There are 4 different fluid painting techniques to learn: dirty pour, flip cup, swiping and dipping. Sounds kind of like a party game, doesn’t it?
Create your own unique wall art using wooden words for amazing pours great for gifts or home decor. Wooden photo frames? Yes you can use those too. Wall art? bring canvas or wooden surfaces.
Certain key supplies are provided on the day of the workshop and are incorporated in the workshop fees as they are difficult to find including floetrol and such.
No refund for missed class. In event of a waiting list, we can make arrangements :)

Approx 4 cradled wood artist panels or canvases-12”X12” max each. at least 1/2” in width.
Please note: wood or canvas surfaces can both be used in this workshop, however, due to limited space at the studio please make sure each piece is no larger than 12”X12” as the paintings will need to sit for 2 or 3 days in order to dry thoroughly. If wanting art larger than 8”X8” I would recommend using the wood panels because canvases tend to sag when holding larger pours. Wood letters or unfinished picture frames available at Michaels as your painting surface. The Dollar Store also carries small wood panels at a reasonable price.
Please gesso (white primer) your wood before workshop. You will need 2 coats. Canvases are already pre-treated.
