Day 27 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is an infinity pour, and I am totally in love with it! This technique is great for highlighting and making the most of contrasting colors, like in this tetradic color scheme. A large one of these would certainly be an amazing focal point for a room, definitely a fun technique to play with and consider for your home decor.
If you would like to follow along with my 30-day acrylic pouring color theory video series, grab your very own color wheel and color scheme guides printable below and some paint!
Color of the Day:
- Tetradic – Violet, Blue-violet, Yellow, Yellow-orange
- Light violet
- Infinity Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and magenta for violet, white and violet for light violet, blue and violet for blue-violet, yellow and orange (red and yellow) for yellow-orange)
I used magenta for my violet hues because I think it makes a less muddy color because there isn’t a yellow undertone to it as there is with red. So if you ever want to make a very vivid violet color, go with magenta. I have found that I actually prefer the Liquitex Basics Quinacridone Magenta to the Artist’s Loft Brilliant Magenta.
