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.
Clean Pour – the Clean Pour technique allows for more controlled, flowing of paint resulting in more defined shapes. This is also called a direct pour. First, mix each color with pouring medium in a separate cup, then pour each cup individually and directly onto your project surface. Wearing gloves, then lift and tile your surface to allow the paint to flow as desired.
- Tape the backside of your leaves onto your foam board.
- Pour your pouring mixture onto your leaves and tilt/swirl until you reach your desired pattern.
- Carefully remove the leaves from the foam board while the leaves are still wet. Let dry on a flat surface.
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, apply Glitterific where desired. Allow to dry completely then seal your project with FolkArt Acrylic Sealer.
