I will teach you my recipe for creating beautiful pour paintings and how to mix it correctly to avoid lumps and cracking. I do not recommend nor teach the use of glues or silicone oil for various reasons (I explain why during the class). My recipe is simple and as you will see… very effective!

The workshop was really good - teacher, content and supplies. The only negative was that the class of 31 was too big, especially for the timeframe.

Teacher was extremely informative and patient. Explaining different types of pours and her methods, along with alternate methods used by other pourers. Plenty of acrylic colours to chose from. Enjoyed meeting new people who were also as eager to learn.
