Creativity Corner with Terry Shay — Pour Painting

This month in Creativity Corner, Terry Shay has another quick craft called pour painting in preparation for International Dot Day on September 15 9ish)!


Pour Painting

I saw a lot of people doing pour painting on social media and decided to learn more about it. I went to Dick Blick and sought the advice of the professionals there to learn what I would need. There are several types of pour paint available, I chose Golden brand because I have been using their acrylics for a few years and really like the color intensity. I also searched YouTube for tutorials.

In this episode, I will show you how I do it and also some tips and tricks I learned along the way.
