This kiss paint pour, Day 10 of my acrylic pouring color theory series, is one of my favorite pieces of the series so far! It’s a very dramatic piece in a tetradic color scheme that, to me, is reminiscent of the sea meeting a lava flow.

Kiss Paint Pour Step by Step
- Lay down a thin base coat of paint. For this kiss paint pour, I did roughly half of my base coat in black and half of it in white.
- Prepare your cups for pouring. I used one cup of warm colors plus black and one cup of cool colors with white.
- I layered them as if I was doing a tree ring pour, gently pouring the colors down the side of the cup so the layers remain distinct.
- Warm cup layers: red-orange, black, light orange, black, red-orange, light orange, black, orange, red-orange, orange, black.
- Cool cup layers: blue, white, blue-green, light blue, white, navy blue, white, blue, blue-green, white, light blue, blue.
- Pour the two cups of paint at the same time o that the puddles from each are touching as you pour. As I poured these, I moved along the canvas slowly and did a slight wiggling motion with the paint.
- Tilt your canvas until you are happy with your painting.
