ATC Sixpack:Acrylic Pour Aquatic Dream

I've finally found a few minutes for this new free ATC Background "Sixpack." More fun than any soda pop, don't you think?

This was my second try at using the technique known as "Acrylic Pouring" or "Poured Acrylics." The "cells" that developed in this small pour are so very tiny that it is difficult to view them without a little help. So I took a few pictures and then played with it for a little bit using Photoshop. I had to zoom in an awful lot before the "cells" could be enjoyed.

Acrylic Pouring is a fun and challenging technique. Beginners can even try it on a shoestring budget. Here in the U.S. we have bargain outlets called Dollar tree or the Dollar Store that sell everything from smaller sized silicone spray lubricant (for squeaks in hinges, etc) to craft paints. An acrylic pour artists named Rick Cheadle has his own channel on YouTube, and there you may find his video entitled, "Paint Pouring On a Dollar Store Budget - Get Started Paint Pouring for UNDER $10." He's not as specific regarding exact ratios of everything, and yet I was stunned as his results using low budget supplies. It really inspired me to begin experimenting myself.

As another option, you can always play with my little experiment for ATCs, shown below.

Happy weekend creativity!
