Join Oak Island Art Guild on Friday, January 11 at the Oak Island Recreation Center. If you have tried acrylic paint pouring or have been watching the gazillion you-tube tutorials, you know that there are so many ways of doing it that your creative mind is swimming with possibilities. Here’s a risk-free chance to get started or to try something new under the guidance of an artist who has already knocked out the kinks and knows her way around. She’s the first to say that there are many different techniques and the first to invite you simply to come and have FUN. Once you learn, your own individual style will emerge.
PAULA KLINE will be our instructor and some samples will be posted when she returns from the holidays. She is bringing the pouring medium and there will be a short checklist of supplies for us to bring. Pouring involves very fluid acrylic paints which can be as simple as watered down basic acrylic or done with acrylic inks or actual fluid acrylics. Additives like silicone,WD40, etc. will help create the interesting cells that appear in the pour. But titanium white acrylic also produces cells. Black and white paint along with your choice of colors are important. Check back the first week of January for all suggested supplies. For now be selecting your favorite colors and get your gloves and a cover-up apron ready. This is really exciting fun but can get messy.
