Contemporary paintings often showcase a wide variety of special effects — especially when the imagery is abstract. Think Jackson Pollock, Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler. Many of those effects can be achieved by pouring acrylic paint.
Pouring is a great way to smooth out unwanted texture, get marbleized effects, rich colored glazes and add some fun to your painting process. Although pouring is a relatively simple technique, it is not always easy.
There are two categories for pouring acrylic paint: coated pours and wash pours. Each requires a different process and will produce different effects.
