In an effort to find the perfect wave pour, this week, I tried doing a wave pour via chain pull with Mardi Gras beads, and I do believe I am getting closer to that elusive perfect wave. I at least am loving the variety that I’ve achieved in my beach series with my, Wave Pour, Large-scale Wave Pour, Beach Sunset, and Beach Scene.
This technique worked much like a swipe and is super easy to do, but it produced some really interesting and beautiful scalloped edge details that I’m just in love with!
