My pouring medium is one of two –

Either straight Floetrol – which I mix it anywhere from1 part paint to 1 part Floetrol to 2 parts Floetrol depending on how pigmented and fluid the paint is, then adding water to thin it to the desired consistency. Note I do not add a whole lot of water as i only need to add a little.

For the other pouring medium I use approximately 8 oz archival PVA glue, 8 to 12 oz Floetrol, 1-2 oz binder medium, 1-2 oz glass medium and 3-4 oz distilled water. Mix that up and store in a bottle. I use the same ratio as I do with Floetrol only when I mix it with the paint.

I tend to like my paint on the thinner side. See video number 032 for how I mix my paint https://youtu.be/e703d3AO6kw

I use 100% Silicone Treadmill Oil, or Blaster Silicone spray

I use a variety of paints, Liquitex, Artist Loft, Grumbacher, Deco Americana and latex satin house paint.

Currently allowing my paintings to cure a minimum of 2 weeks and then cleaning them by spreading a light coat of cornstarch on the surface of the painting. Rubbing it onto the painting to allow it to absorb as much silicone as possible. Then I take a damp sponge and put some Dawn dish soap and gently rub the surface of the painting checking the sponge to make sure the paint isn’t beginning to rub off. Then I quickly rinse the soap off the painting under running water. Allow it to dry for 5-7 days and then spritz the surface with alcohol and wipe it down to remove any additional silicone and let it dry at least one more day.

To seal the painting I use Polycrylic by Minwax. I use a gloved hand to spread the varnish . I apply a light coat, allow to dry, then apply 2-3 more coats.

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful pour! I LOVE metallic paints!
    I have questions – for anyone really.
    • You mentioned: Because this is metallic, it won’t sink, but if it does, everything will sink. Can you explain why?
    • Also, how long did this painting take to dry? Was this painting a little thicker than usual?
    • What would happen if you added some metallic flecks to this after you were done. Would they sink or stay on top to highlight the work? I think adding some metallic flecks in the edges of the white would have looked quite nice on this beautiful pour. I don’t know what "flecks" I am referring to technically since I’ve no idea what is available. 🙂

    For you and others to get to know me:
    I haven’t done any art in such a long time and now that I am not working, I am studying so that I can set up my upstairs rooms for painting, crafts, and sewing.

    I have health issues and not sure if I can get enough done to make enough money to live on, but if I could while I finally enjoy being Happy and Creative in my later years, I would be so grateful to enjoy living off my creative passions! I hope to have my own videos up by Fall 2018! Thanks again!

    Very nice! Ive hesitated using Floetrol with metallics because I’ve heard it said that it mattes them, causing them to lose a lot of their sparkle. What is your experience? Considering the low cost of Floetrol I’d love to use it but i work almost exclusively with metallics and so I’ve avoided it.
