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.
