Fluid Art Paintings Techniques

The attractive, abstract trend known as “Fluid Art” has swept the art world. And we are aware of the factor that has contributed to its enormous popularity among artists. Fluid art is appealing because it is simple to practice and creates a lovely marbled appearance when the paint is mixed.

The ability to move and manipulate paints after we have laid them out on the canvas is the best feature of the fluid painting. A more subtle piece, however, would be one where the colours can be distinguished, where you can see their various levels and the patterns they create.

Clean Pour

The clean pour, often known as the basic pour, is the most fundamental pour painting method. When we need to draw precise, sharp lines from viscous paint, we choose this method. Pour each colour onto the canvas one at a time. Use only a few colours at a time. You can move the wet colours with a toothpick to make swirls and lines while they are still wet.

Dirty Pour

The dirty pour, in a contrast to the clean pour, involves pouring all the pigments onto the canvas at once. One of the most popular pouring methods involves first mixing the colour and medium, then piling the viscous pigments in a cup one on top of the other. The cup’s contents are then poured on the canvas to make a layered pattern.

Tree Swirl

The first several steps will resemble the filthy pour method. However, after layering the paints, you must compress the paper cup’s edge to create a triangle spout or a beak. The paint should then be poured in a circular motion from the cup’s beak point. Once you have finished pouring, shape the paint in a circle to give the impression of rings. The greatest surfaces for this kind of pouring are canvas and circular boards.

Dutch Pour

Using a blowtorch instead of a filthy pour, this method. You may manipulate paint with a blowtorch to make a variety of designs, such as flowers, birds, or even haphazard splatters of paint that seem quite beautiful. However, use blowtorches with caution. Make sure the flame is not left unattended since certain torch fires can use butane or propane. Make sure a responsible adult is nearby if you’re a young artist so they can show you how to wield the torch without getting burned. Take a look at the slow-blow pouring method below. The particular torch shown in the video is available to purchase here.

Swipe Technique

The technique for swiping is really simple. When your canvas is completely covered in colour from the dirty pour, use a rough object and begin swiping from the smallest edge. To avoid breaks and colour clumps, try to complete it in a single smooth motion.
