Clean Pour with Pouring Medium

The Clean Pour Technique allows for more controlled flowing of paint, resulting in more defined shapes. With this technique, pour each paint color individually and directly to your surface, then lift and tilt your canvas to allow the paint to flow.

Step 1: Choose your color palette.

Step 2: Mix your paint and pouring medium using a 1:1 ratio. 

Step 3: Layer one color into a cup

Step 4: Layer a second color into a cup. Add 1-4 colors to a cup, continuing to layer each color until the cup is full.

Step 5: Place your cup up-side down onto your surface (or you can just pour it on).

Step 6: Lift the cup from the surface.
