The SEW Region Magazine - Book Threads

This book opened up a whole new world of artistic creativity for me. It covers its subject thoroughly with clear directions and excellent illustrations.

As its name implies, the book is all about the relatively new painting technique of pouring acrylic paint, mixed with a range of mediums, over a surface to produce intriguing abstract creations on a canvas or board.

The mediums used are key to the venture as they mix with the paints to help them flow and they also keep colours separate from each other. In addition to the basic gel medium, other substance such as silicone oil can be added the latter leading to the creation of oil-like cells of colour in the finished work.

In addition to precise explanations of the different materials, methods and techniques of paint pouring, there are 16 complete projects, explained and illustrated in detail, that will enable the reader to put theory into practice.

One last word of warning, care needs to be taken in setting up the workspace as the motion of pouring paint around will inevitably invite a spillage or two but what fun acrylic paint pouring can be!
