I started playing with acrylic pours when we lived in NS. Tyler (my son) and I redid the countertops in a acrylic pour and then rosined over them.
It was a great project and my introduction to acrylic cup pours.
I hadn't ventured very far from the typical cup pour and over the years made a few impressive canvases.

As all things must progress so must I. As of late I have been trying out a few new technics and pouring tools.
This is a acrylic swipe using moistened paper towel to drag the paint across the canvas. I was fun and so cool to do that I did a series in different colors. Blue, black, green and pink. The pink is awful (not my favorite color) but kind of cool too! They look like a side view of the milky way.
Since moving to Shaunavon SK. I have had the opportunity to expand my rapporteur and use a few new tools. I has helped that the winter here has been cold enough that I don't want to go outside, -32c. yikes!
My favorite has been the lazy susan. Being able to spin the pictures creates all kinds of cool effects.
But there have been a few epic fails as well. Here is my attempt at using a pot scrubber to make wheat like flowers.
I'll leave you with a blown acrylic pour. Tyler modified a hair drier for me so it only blows cool air. That and a small water balloon to create this beauty.
Needless to say I've been having fun and keeping busy; although I have no idea what I am going to do with all these pictures. For some reason they keep stacking up, lol.
