Fluid/Flow Painting & Marble Effects

In this video, Dot walks us through the process of fluid painting or flow painting using acrylics and the ingredients needed to create this effect, plus marbling tiles and objects by dipping the objects into ionised /ionized water with special acrylic paint floating on the surface of the water.

Special thank you to Dot and Gina for demonstrating the process of flow/fluid/pour painting and marble effects! 🙂

Thank you to the crew at Millbrook Arts & Crafts Group! 🙂

  1. Thank you Angela! You should be able to achieve a marbled effect by using the GAC 800 and Fluid Acrylics. Mix several colors, let sit to allow the bubbles to rise and pop, then pour in bullseye circles as desired. Next, use a toothpick or other thin stylus to manipulate the paints into the patterns. The paint can be allowed to flow over the edges a bit with gentle tilting. Place the painting on a raised level surface and allow to dry. For the works with tape, do the pours as desired and level the panels off as described earlier. Allow the paints 10 minutes or so to level and then carefully remove the tape. As long as the poured paints are not overly thick, and the surface is completely level, the paints should stay put and not want to creep into the unpainted sections. You may need to try several kinds of surfaces as rough or absorbent textures will likely allow the paint to move into the previously taped sections. Mike
