This week, I’ve been working with this nifty split cup that my husband printed for me with his 3D printer. I’ve seen that people claim that it makes amazing ring pours, so I decided to give that technique a go with my new tool!
I used mostly latex house paint for this painting because I have had the best luck with that for tree ring pours. So I figured between my latex paint and this fancy cup, I’d be sure to make something fun to look at!

Go Forth and Pour!
I challenge you to find something new to experiment with. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy like something printed. Some of the best pours come from the most mundane household items that someone thought to repurpose! Give it a go! Be creative, and let me know what you come up with!
