FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


 

What Is This?

This is the question I get most often at art shows. I've had people assume that its actual marble or that I've hand painted it all with a brush or even that its digital art. Its none of those. This is called Fluid Art AKA Acrylic Pour. Acrylic paint is mixed with pouring mediums such as floetrol. This allows the paint to be thinned while still retaining its integrity. The mediums help the paint dry properly without cracking. The paint can then be poured on a surface such as canvas and "stretched" and manipulated.  There are many techniques and tools used to create the designs. 

Do you use a brush?

I use a brush when sealing with varnish and "edging"  the painting but other than that no. "Edging" refers to the process of painting the edges of a canvas to give it a more finished look. 

What tools do you use?

My favorite tool is the frosting knife I stole from my Mom. I use everything from a straw to a blow torch. If it makes the paint move in a while I like, then I'll use it. I also have an Artristic Easel that I use for bigger pieces. It holds the canvas in place while I tilt it to stretch to paint. 

Does it make a mess? It looks like it makes a mess.

Everything is covered in paint. If it doesn't have paint on it currently it will soon, My new FitBit lasted 4 hours before it to was unwittily baptized in run off paint. I do everything I can to contain it, but it is fruitless. You don't even have to see me pour a big piece to know I did. All you have to do is look for the trail of paint from the studio area, to the sink, to the trash, then back to the studio area. The day I get my studio area is the day everything becomes paint. 

What is stretching? 

In this context stretching is when you tilt the canvas and allow the paint to roll over the sides. This will thin the paint and you can more easily see the layers. Imagine putting a layer of white, then green, and then gold on a canvas. I can then use my trusty frosting knife to smooth it about a bit. Then I'll lift the canvas off the table and tilt it side to side making the paint move and fall off the edges. The paint remaining on the canvas will have a "stretched" look and you can more easily see the layers on top of one another. This is another reason why pouring mediums are important. 

Do you do commisions?

Absolutely! Please feel free to contact me. I'll answer as soon as I can. In the future there will be a much more stream lined way of taking orders.
