In part two we created out first pouring colour. You would of course have gone on to repeat this for each colour that you wanted to use.

This means that you are now ready to pour – almost.

First, make sure that your work surface is protected. You can either use a tray of some sort or cover your work area with plastic bin liners.

Next, grab a few of your measuring cups and place them on your work surface, spaced out so that it raises your ‘canvas’ up off the table top.

Now, we will be doing a ‘dirty’ pour.

This is when you put all of the colours in one pouring ‘jug’ and then pour that onto your ‘canvas’.

Fill your pouring jug by drizzling the colours down the inside edge.

Get your canvas in position and then pour!

You can either pour it so that it all flows out from the centre or you can make patterns by pouring in a zig zag fashion.

Now let the paint flow for a few moments.

Time for some cells!

Grab the WD40. Make a swift spritz across the surface of the canvas. DON’T SPRAY TOO MUCH AS IT WILL CREATE TOO MANY CELLS!

The cells will form immediately.

Let these grow for a about 60 seconds.

Then, if you would like to pick the canvas up and let the paint run in various directions go for it!

Now it is time to set it to one side and let it dry.

Drying time will vary from 12 to 48 hours depending on the thickness of the pouring paint, the size of the project and the ambient temperature in the room.

Don’t try and force this as it may form cracks or other unwanted results. Be patient. Lol!

Then, if you want to give it a coat of something to seal it, feel free. You don’t need too tho.

That my friends is that!
