Wholly Acrylic paint and Jo Sonja 's Flow Media batman!!

February 14, 2018

Well I have made some test acrylic paint pours just to see what this combination of media is all about. 


The Acrylic paint is "Artist's Loft" the mixing media is made up of a formula of 16 ounces of distilled water and 2 ounces of "Jo Sonja's Flow Media"


The panels are 8" x 8" - 1/4" plywood panels. 


I mixed each paint colour and mixing media in  its own plastic cup. You have to make sure you add enough of the distilled water and Jo Sonja flow media to make the ending paint mixture easy flowing.


I added a small spray of silicone (silicone lubricant) into each cup then combined all the cups into one cup.  This is called a dirty pour.

After I poured the paint mixture on the panels, I simply tilted the panel in various directions to get the flow of the paint mixture to cover the panels.  Then I ran a small artist's torch over each panel to cause cells to form in the mixture. Do not hold the torch on place for long and do not hold the flame to close to the panel. 

After a few days I then covered the panels with a coat of Art Resin and used the artist torch to breakup any air bubbles in the resin.  You can also use a heat gun set at high temperature to breakup bubbles.  (Resin locally available from Art Resin website in Canada) https://www.artresin.ca/?c=ca


Now I think I will add some cork to the back of these and try making them into trivets or coasters. I don't thik any real hot items will go one these as it may deform the panel.  They will make good coaster for cold drinks and plant pots though


Have fun and try this out. It was relatively inexpensive to do.  The paints and Jo Sonja I bought online artist store.  The resin I got from Art Resin website.


See you in the Workshop!
