Create a raised, covered space to place your surface once you've poured your paint, such as thumbtacks in cardboard or a baker's rack.
Dirty Pour – the Dirty Pour technique creates an elegant, marbled effect. A flip-cup pour is also a form of dirty pour. Mix all or multiple colors with medium in a cup, then pour onto your project surface as desired.
- Layer all of your pouring colors in a cup and pour the contents of the cup onto your canvas. Tilt/swirl until you reach your desired pattern
- Mix a 2:1 ratio of glitter and Mod Podge in a bowl. Mix until well incorporated. Mix in rock salt until the salt is totally covered by the glitter mixture and doesn’t look runny.
- Scoop your faux geode mixture onto your pour in your desired pattern. Let dry.
Drying and Finishing
Place your painted project on the raised surface and allow to dry and cure for 24-48 hours for optimal results. Once dry, seal your project with FolkArt Acrylic Sealer.
