Acrylic pouring leftovers on yupo paper!

Hi everyone, I've been playing with a new to me technique called acrylic pouring.
I mixed acrylic paints with floetrol, silicone and water and did a flip cup dirty pour!
Sounds bad but it is so good lol!

I poured on a couple of 4x4 inch canvas boards. I'll show these another time.
Lots of paint drips off the canvases and not wanting to waste it I dipped some strips of yupo paper into it.
I almost liked doing this more than the canvas pour!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is something new.

I've used a silver sentiment sticker, if that counts.

Acrylic paints; Floetrol paint conditioner; coconut hair oil (silicon); yupo paper; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. I love your end result! It's fun playing with different techniques, especially when they tune out! Thanks for joining in at JUGS and STB

  2. this is such a fun technique, I love the effect on Yupo :)

  3. Oh WOW, what an amazing panel, Cathy. Beautiful card. xx

  4. OMG Cathy this is gorgeous! I have only recently been watching this technique on Youtube and love the results - and the fun messy bits. Gotta try it sometime. Fabulous card. So glad you shared it with us at Just Us Girls.

  5. Cathy the effect is stunning, it reminds me of Mother of Pearl.
    I must go and watch the Youtube link.
    sharon :)

  6. Gorgeous panel for your card Cathy. I did some dirty pour canvases last year and had so much fun. Will be doing more this year. I also have some yupo pieces with the leftovers. xx

  7. So cool, Cathy ... kind of groovy and funky in a contemporary way ... such a stunning panel! Hugs, Anita :)

  8. Wow, that poured panel is just stunning!!

  9. Wow, this is gorgeous! And so cool to see this technique used - very creative! Thanks so much for linking up this week at JUGS!

  10. Oh this is just gorgeous! I have not heard of this, and golly, the dirty pour sure was a beautiful effect. I have tried brusho and spray starch over yupo recently, using cling wrap. Didn't dry well, so helped along, cautiously, with a warm heat gun. I love what you've created with this panel! Thanks for your visit, and while we have sunshine, the warm weather would be nice if you could send a little over our way. But what we have in our area is typical for the time of year. Hugs and enjoy your a/c and pool. TFS (oh I see that someone mentioned it looks like Mother of Pearl. To me it looks like abalone - just stunning)

  11. Cathy, just looked at some videos on this technique, as it was very new to me as well. How long did it take for your yupo paper to dry? Looks like lots of fun, although many of the mixatives are new products to me. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Hi Mary, probably a few hours, though as I said we are having very hot weather here, so that may have sped it up! I left it overnight just to be sure.

  12. Your panel is beautiful and a lovely card. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.

  13. Gorgeous marble-look panel, Cathy! The black card base enhances the beauty of the panel. I've never tried the acrylic pouring technique, but I want to try it someday! Hideko xx

  14. The marble effect is extraordinary! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
    The black base is such a perfect combination, it shows the panel even more! Very well done!Thank you for playing along with us over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we all hope to see you again soon!


  15. hi cathy - thanks for the nice comment on my blog today - and your acrylic on yupo looks fantastic against the black background - never heard of this technique - will have to look into it!

  16. So stunning. That certainly wasn't a waste,

  17. Marbling is amazing. Great card. Love it. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Something New Challenge. Gayatri xx

  18. so pretty...great results.
    xx Karen

  19. Well that's a lot of vocabulary that's new to me! But such cool results. Looks (and sounds) like fun.

  20. How cool - I wanted to try this now for a very long time.....what is floetrol?

  21. WOW! The marbling effect you've achieved with this technique is gorgeous! So thrilled to you in the STAMPlorations CAS Challenge gallery!
