Painting Over a Cracked & Crazed Fluid Art Large Wood Ornament… STUNNING Final Result!
Hi👋🏼Well, the paint on my orange large wood ornament cracked and crazed when it dried. I had a feeling it would do this. When I went to check on it while it was drying, I saw that I left a lot of paint in the center of the ornament. What is cracking and crazing? I have created a blog post that explains everything: https://paintpouracademy.com/cracking-crazing-problems/
I did not like the dried design of this ornament. I am usually OK with the cracking and crazing but I think it looks wrong in this piece and I really do not like all of the orange colors. I decided to pour over this piece and try again… I am glad I did! This is a super fun project and makes for an AMAZING Christmas decoration for my home. Let me know what you think!
Painting a Large Wood Ornament with Acrylic Paint Pouring Techniques
Hi👋🏼 I had so much fun painting this large wood ornament! I used the Cloud Effect/Tree Ring paint pouring technique for this project. You will notice that I did speed up the video around 00:01:30… I had to step away from my painting to pay attention to my cats for about 5 minutes. I do enjoy watching the paint move during this part!
This is a super fun project and makes for an AMAZING Christmas decoration for my home. Let me know what you think!
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 ❤️,
