Organize Your Acrylic Paint Pouring Notes!

Acrylic Paint Pouring Project Tracker Notebook available at PaintPourAcademy.com

Hi👋🏼 Acrylic Paint Pouring can be a little frustrating to beginners because of all the variables needed for a technique to work well. When I was learning, I wrote notes on little pieces of paper that ended up everywhere, including the trash. I wish I had a way to organize my notes so I could look back and remember what the heck I did! Introducing my ACRYLIC PAINT POURING PROJECT TRACKER NOTEBOOK!

My Paint Pouring Project Tracker Notebook was created to help all artists organize their thoughts and their notes into a traditional binder. It includes two versions of the cover page (one is printer-friendly), a detail page for you to list your project information, including an area to dab a bit of paint for future reference, notes, and photo page, and a page to list your favorite artists and their general contact information.

This is the perfect acrylic paint pouring project tracker notebook for beginners!

Creating a BEAUTIFUL Large Canvas Ocean Paint Pouring

Hi👋🏼 My first attempt at a large canvas ocean beach paint pour did not go like I wanted so I tilted off the paint and let the canvas dry. Now, I am attempting it again… but this time I am remembering to use my silicone oil! I am in LOVE with how this turned out! It almost looks like a waterfall with the water crashing on the sand.

What do you think?

The Mistakes I Made While Painting a Large Canvas Acrylic Paint Pouring Ocean Beach Scene

Hi👋🏼 Have you ever worked on a project that went wrong from the beginning? LOL, I have, and here it is! 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! I have made several smaller versions that I loved, and the thought of making this on a large 24”x36” canvas was exciting.

Let me know what you think!

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 ❤️,
