Acrylic Pouring

I have been accumulating all kinds of goodies for Acrylic pouring  and came across a class in Peterborough to take - was a few hours but we did a hands on canvas and a couple of other things - cant wait to pick them up end of the week

this is what I did in the canvas - using  regular dollar store acrylics a touch of water and the Floetrol (which is soooooo much cheaper than the pouring mediums you get at either Michaels or Curry's )

I'll have more details on set up and mixing shortly but it was fund and  less waste than I thought there would be to take the over flow and make  bookmarks and  jeweley from

but here is my first small canvas - I used the  silicone oil in this one

Another Etched Steel plate

almost done for the night - just one more batch after this one - really like the swirls



Yet More ! Etched steel

fresh out of etch tonight - I have some prepped and working on tonight to get etched


More etched steel

Loving how it etches - so easy -  the hard part is weeding the vinyl and  then taking it off the etched pieces  takes the most time





and prepping some more
