Fluid Art Weekly Update, March 3, 2023 | Swipe Paint Pouring Project

Ocean Swipe Acrylic Paint Pouring

Ocean Swipe Acrylic Paint Pouring

I LOVE creating abstract art with my acrylic paint pouring techniques! One of my favorite techniques is the Swipe Paint Pouring Technique. This technique creates beautiful cells easily over layers of paint. When combined with the Dirty Paint Pour or Ribbon Paint Pour techniques, a STUNNING ocean beach scene can be created!

I was asked to create a large canvas ocean beach acrylic paint pouring masterpiece for a friend. I was so excited to work on this! Even though my previous Ocean Swipe Paint Pouring masterpieces have been smaller in size, I thought making a larger version would come easily for me. Below is my journey and what I learned from my mistakes.

FREE ONLINE TOOL: Acrylic Pouring Paint Calculator

Acrylic Paint Pouring Calculator Desert Hippie Arts 1

Knowing how much paint to use can be a frustration for some artists. While mixing more paint than needed for your project is best, mixing too much paint can be time-consuming and sometimes wasteful. When I first started learning about paint mixing, I watched so many videos that said, “use about this much” or “just eyeball it.” These learning techniques may work for some, but I had difficulty feeling confident to start learning until I watched more to learn what “just eyeball it” really meant.

I have created two calculators for you to use to help determine how much paint is needed for your project. These calculators are a FREE resource to assist you with your project. And, they are simple to use! You will enter the height and width of your square or rectangle surface (or diameter if using a circle surface) and the depth of the side of your surface. The calculators will give you the approximate ounces of paint you need to complete your project!

I hope you are excited about these updates as I am. I will check in with you next week and share more fluid art fun with you!

Thank you for supporting my art, and thank you for painting with me!

Much love ❤️,

Erika
