What do students say?

I have never seen anyone explain paint like you! I never understood any of it until now. You take the time to explain and even name the consistency’s of the paint. How much to add to pouring mediums is so important.

Anyone that is even thinking about paint pouring NEEDS this class.

The best class EVER! – Joanne Howard (and this was just after seeing the getting started videos!)

Paint Pouring on a Mailbox

Sure, I’ve wanted to paint my mailbox for years.  It was a basic, cheap white mailbox and I knew paint could make it fabulous.  But none of the ideas I had before actually got me to paint the thing, until now!

Watch Paint Pouring a Mailbox on YouTube.

Want to know more about paint pouring? Check out the online workshop Paint Pouring FUNdamentals.

Start by mixing your paint and pouring medium.  I chose Liquitex pouring medium and Liquitex soft body paints. Since this is going to be outside, I wanted a paint that I knew was lightfast and could handle being in the sun.

When you’re mixing the paint, mix gently. You want to avoid creating air bubbles in there.

The same tongue depressors/popsicle sticks that were used to mix the paint are also what is used to put small amounts on the mailbox.

The mailbox was moved inside for painting to prevent any leaves or other outdoor stuff sticking in the paint while it dried.

This mailbox has survived 5 months out in the elements without showing any signs of wear.  The next big test for it will be winter with the freezing and thawing, but I have high hopes that it will do just fine!

When you’re doing paint pouring, the paint often runs over the edge and into the box below. Is that paint wasted? NOPE! It becomes an acrylic skin that can be used in other art and play.  What can you do with that skin?  Lots!  In this video, I’m sharing how to use it as the background in your art journal.

Watch Using an acrylic skin in an art journal on YouTube.

What’s an acrylic skin?  It’s dried paint that isn’t “on” anything like paper or a canvas.

How do you make them?  This one was created from the drips and paint running off of poured paintings.  When you’re paint pouring, every drop of paint can be used!

Once the skin is glued on to your art journal page, you trace any shapes that call you with a pen.  The best one for writing on the glossy surface is a Sharpie.

As you’re writing, if you notice the pen seems to be “drying up”, write on paper to remove any residue that the pen tip is picking up.  This will make the pen last a long time.

Once you have the shapes outlined, then add more color.  Since this is paint, you can naturally put paint on top of it.

A perk of working on a glossy surface like this is that if you paint over the lines, a damp cotton swab cleans up the edges.

Art journal pages tend to have writing on there somewhere when I create them. If you can’t read this, never fear.  I can’t either.  What I do is scribble writing that is more about getting my thoughts and feelings out than writing legibly.

Here’s the finished page- no drawing skills needed to make this. Just tracing around the shapes in the paint!

Do you love watching the videos on paint pouring, but don’t know where to begin? Everything you need to know is waiting for you in Paint Pouring FUNdamentals. And you’ll make some gorgeous skins along the way that you can use in things like your art journal!
