On a roll with pouring medium

Here’s another pouring medium piece done on cradled wood panel:

This one is 6″x6″. This piece was a failure that turned into a success; by success I mean a piece that I am pleased with in the end. When I started out, I had a different outcome in mind and it wasn’t going in the direction that I wanted. So I changed directions; pouring medium is very forgiving in that, you can always start over on top of the last layer, leaving in only what you want to show through.

Below is a detail that I like very much of the silver paint fragmented by small crackles:

Here are a few more details showing black paint and metallic highlights amongst the layers:

Journal page with Golden High Flow

Lately, it’s been hot. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to do much when it’s hot. So I’ve been just fooling around with my journal pages.

I’ve been trying Golden acrylics again. I don’t know why, but the Heavy Body and the Fluid ranges of the Golden acrylics underwhelm me. But the High Flow and the Open ranges I like quite a bit. The random blobs were done with the Golden High Flow ‘Drawing’ set:

The paint was squiggled on and sprayed with water. The paints are pretty much acrylic inks and I love the applicator bottles they come in. It’s much easier to get small amounts of paint and also easier to transfer into other bottles if you need to.

The High Flow ‘Drawing’ set comes with a nice assortment of colours including three metallics: gold, copper and silver. They are quite fun but needs to be shaken vigorously like many liquid metallic paints.

I decided to add a little doodle with my favorite white pen, Uniball Signo. This time I was able to get more of the thinner version that I was out of.

Wishing you a wonderfully balmy summer weekend!
