The Fun of Sludge

When there is a bunch of paint in the box, you can pour it onto a canvas.


If I don’t love love love it, then I do something else to it.  Sometimes it works smashingly, sometimes, it flops.  But I keep working it over until I am happy with it.


The cells were amazing, but they didn’t last.  Why?  3 reasons

  1. there was lots of paint on this so there were currents flowing under the surface
  2. it was very syrupy so it flowed easily
  3. I used Liquitex Pouring Medium.  That stuff gives amazingly defined lines, but the cells disperse more easily because it seems to remain fluid

But if I want those striations, the lines, then I use Liquitex Pouring Medium.
