Confetti swipe with a delicate touch or like the Incredible Hulk

The colors mix when you swipe.

The more paint the more flowing and currents pulling on the cells, the less paint the less flowing and currents pulling.

Did a base layer of each color and on the side.  It’s a thin layer so not too much flowing there.  Used paint, pouring medium, and silicone in a squeeze bottle.

Then went over it with more of each color.

Then a squiggle layer of white.

Then a squiggle layer putting BFF colors on top of each other.  This will reduce the mud factor.

Then more white on top.

Swiped with a piece of paper and there was the big bold magenta spot at the top so used the paint on the paper to fill that in.  The colors on the paper were different because they had been mixed longer.

 

 

Thin layer of white/pouring mixture on canvas and edges

Convfetti thin bits of three primary colors and one frenemy of your choice.  Hold container of paint up high to get thin lines of it to drizzle on

drizzle on top layer of white.  One was with dimethicone and one wasn’t.

put a piece of paper on the edge and drag the paper along to swipe

 

When I did the pour without any cell making substance (I used dimethicone- could have used silicone too) there was very little movement.  There was more white paint added on top because I just couldn’t get the pretty confetti bits – it was more globs.  But on the lesser paint dimethicone one there was so much more movement and action. Why?  My theory is that there was the reaction of the dimethicone that was pushing the paint creating a bit of an undercurrent that pulled.  There was also the variable that I shimmed up the canvas to make it more level when I noticed the pull on the straight lines.

Start with a thin layer of white/pouring medium to cover the top and edges.

Drizzle on the 3 primary colors, red, yellow, and blue.  Avoid doing big globs so that you get more the confetti pour look.  Add a small amount of a fremeny color of your choice.  I used orange.

Confetti drizzle white paint/pouring medium/cell maker (I used dimethicone) mixture all along the top.

Then place a piece of copy paper on top of the edge, and drag it along the entire canvas. One the every edge of the paper will touch the paint, this is what gives it that delicate touch.

This changed a lot, very quickly.

 

Does the dimethicone or other cell making product like silicone, make a difference?  This second pour did not involve any of cell making product.  I tried to duplicate the process and much as I could and the results were quite different.  Why? What’s going on?

When I did the pour without any cell making substance (I used dimethicone- could have used silicone too) there was very little movement but when I used the dimethicone there was tons of movement.

There was more white paint added on top because I just couldn’t get the pretty confetti bits – it was more globs.  But on the lesser paint dimethicone one there was so much more movement and action. Why?  My theory is that there was the reaction of the dimethicone that was pushing the paint creating a bit of an undercurrent that pulled.  There was also the variable that I shimmed up the canvas to make it more level when I noticed the pull on the straight lines.
