  • Recommended proportions: use 1 part medium to 1 part Acrylic colour to 1 part water (experiment for different effects). 

  • If diluting with water mix the colour first, once fully mixed then add the Pouring medium, mixing slowly to avoid bubbles.

  • It is recommended to leave the colour / medium mixture for about 1 hour before pouring, in order to ensure consistency.

  • A few drops of silicone oil can be used to stimulate cell creation.

  • Drying: Away from dust, dry to the touch in 30 minutes to 1 hour and completely dry in 1-8 days depending on the thickness.

  • Cleans up with water.

In addition, to compliment the Pouring Resin we have an introductory set Tubes of Pebeo Iridescent and Titanium White Studio Acrylics to create beautiful mixtures on special offer.

    Techniques

    Pour and overlay colours in concentric circles to the edges.

    The medium provides a smooth, clean and uniform application.

    By using the same technique but rotating the surface as you pour new unique shapes can be created.

     

    Pour random colours separately, a spatula/palette knife can be used to layer the colours.

    When Titanium White is used, cells can sometimes randomly appear without the need to add silicone oil.

     

    A cup pour means putting your chosen colours into a container before applying to your substrate.

       

      Adding Silicone Oil

      A few drops of Silicone Oil into the Pouring medium/colour mixture  (3 to 8 drops maximum depending on the amount prepared) will aid with the creation of cells. Adjust according to the desired effect (Warning: if there is too much silicone oil, it may create holes in some places).

       

      Tips

      Using a blowtorch on the mixture of colour, pouring medium & silicone oil just after pouring  speeds up the cell creation process, but do not wait until the mixture is dry otherwise the blowtorch will have no effect.

      Don't use the blowtorch too close to the surface in order not to burn the paint.

      Once the surface is completely dry, to remove excess silicone oil, wipe with a soft dry cloth or a cloth lightly doused in alcohol. Do not rub too hard otherwise you risk damaging the surface of the work.

      If finishing your work with Gédéo Glazing Resin or Top Coat, you need to wipe the surface to remove excess silicone oil with a soft cloth doused in a little alcohol, without rubbing too hard so you do not damage the work.

      Immediately apply on the degreased surface a layer of the Pebeo Pouring medium with a brush, once touch dry then apply top coat or glazing resin.
