What is Fluid Art?

What is Fluid Art?


The best way to explain Fluid Art is to demonstrate it but essentially it is a technique used with acrylic paint where you add a pouring medium and other products to make the paint behave in a fluid way.  The paint takes longer to dry and flows, the consistency being like pouring cream. By pouring paint on the canvas using different techniques you produce an abstract painting. 

Which Pouring Medium?

There are several, the ones I use are Liquitex Pouring Medium and Floetrol

How to Form Cells

Cell formation is all about science, it is about the density of paint, additives like silicon which split paint or the way you move the paint which are important in cell formation.
