Acrylic Pouring – Also Some Quips and Quotes

Some more of my Acrylic Pour Paint projects. The two round ones were poured on CD’s. (The white borders and dark ‘frames’ are computer generated). The photos really don’t do justice to the texture of the paint and the sheen of the Polyurethane topcoat.

I don’t think of myself as an ‘artist’. I just pour some paints on a surface, push them around a bit and the paint decides whether it is going to flow a bit or if it will rise or fall in relation to the other colours. (Different colour paints are different densities).

I’m not performing miracles, I’m using up and wasting a lot of paint.

I couldn’t have that painting hanging in my home. It would be like living with a gas leak.

    1. I agree: GORGEOUS! And lovely quotes that made me smile and reminded me of Shaw’s “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” Playing. Painting. I’m glad you’re continuing with it!


  1. I see these pour paintings around, but don’t know that I could do one. Beyond the fact that I don’t have the paints, I fear that with my fussy nature about all things decor, I’d never like what I made.


  2. Beautiful pours. You’re so multi-talented.
    Your quotes are spot on.
    I love the way you used the cd’s. Great idea.


    1. Thanks E.C. I’m a ‘Jack of all trades’! I’m doing most of my pours on what I find around the house or scraps of wood from the hubby’s workshop. They are also small – most aren’t much bigger than the CD, so they don’t take up a lot of room when displayed.
