Day 29 in my acrylic pouring color theory series is a puddle pour, which produces results different than any other type of pour. Even though it’s one of them simplest pour techniques, it produces some beautiful results! If you’re looking for something with large blocks of color and amazing lines, this is definitely technique you should use to create some wall art for your space.
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:
- Analogous – Violet, Blue-violet, Red-violet
- Puddle Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and magenta for violet, yellow and orange (red and yellow) for yellow-orange, yellow and green (blue and yellow) for yellow-green)
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.
