Fluid Painting / Fluid Art
Fluid Art or Fluid Painting means nothing more than liquid art. In contrast to conventional painting, the paint is not applied with a brush or spatula, but the paint is poured in a liquid state on the painting ground. Without any previous knowledge, you can start right away and create your first works of art. These techniques are very suitable for beginners, but also for advanced students, there are always new possibilities to discover.
Acrylic Pouring – The Pour Painting Technique
In Acrylic Pouring, the Acrylic Paint is made more liquid and pourable with a pouring medium. This mixture is then mixed with additives such as oils and poured onto the canvas. The applied color mixture can then be brought into various shapes and gradients by tilting the canvas. In combination with the colors, the additives ensure the formation of cells.

Alcohol Ink – Pouring with Alcohol Ink
With the Alcohol Ink technique, you can create beautiful colored works of art. As the name suggests, you work with Alcohol Inks, which are inks based on alcohol. These are dripped onto a waterproof surface, sprayed or applied with an applicator. The special thing about this is that you can liquefy the applied colors again at any time and make changes such as color gradients.

Several layers can be poured on top of each other. You can cast classical pictures as well as forms or jewelry. The resin art is the most demanding of all the variants presented here.
