Acrylic Paint Pour Cup On Canvas


  1. OK Rita Marie where did I go wrong? The paint came out like a big blob and I ended up finger painting. It did not spread out but just sat there in a big blog!! Used the pouring medium, 3 colors of acrylic paint, and turned upside down on my canvas. This always happens to me!! Too much pouring medium? Too much paint? Argghh. suzschultz23(at)aol(dot)com

  2. I left a comment here last nite. Dont know what happened to it? I tried this technique. My pouring medium and paint came out in one big blob and went nowhere. I ended up having to finger paint it all over the canvas. Where did I go wrong? Was I supposed to gesso the canvas? So disappointed. Help please. suzschultz23(at)aol(dot)com

    1. Hi Susie, Did you flip the cup of paint and pouring medium onto the canvas and let it all trickle down from the cup?The paint may have been too thick. Try adding pouring medium to each paint color separately then mix it up and add it to the cup. It sounds like the paint didn't flow well. I never gesso the canvas when I do the pouring. Let me know if it works. You can also text me or call me if you have any more questions. 386-562-2721. Good Luck… :)
