Paint pouring is quick to make but can take up to 48 hours to dry! Leave them somewhere well ventilated and free of dust and movement. While they dry you can continue to work with the excess paint, so nothing goes to waste!
1: Use up scrap papers or small canvases by dipping them into the drip tray to coat them in a colourful, marbled layer of paint.
2: Place the paper on the most interesting cells and colours, leave for a few seconds then remove. Once dried these could be turned into mini prints, postcards, gift tags or crafting paper.
3: Tilt the drip tray and scrape all the excess paint into a sealable cup or jar. (If it isn’t too murky already you could attempt another dirty pour with this paint!)
4: Mix thoroughly and be aware it might not make the prettiest colour! But you could add a dark colour in to knock any muddiness or add white to lighten it back to a base colour. Use these to tint new colours lighter or darker.
Top Tip: Paint pouring as a craft uses large volumes of paint but by being mindful and resourceful you can minimise the amount of wasted paint. You can also work back on top of dried canvases to practice your technique.
