BRUSTRO pouring medium virtually capable of creating a marbled affect on any surface is surely every artist’s delight. Not only can it be mixed with fluid acrylics and Brustro Artists’ Acrylics but also with inks. The magical drip, pour and swirl of this medium heightens the effect furthermore .
Brustro pouring medium is a self-levelling clear medium that when applied to a surface or as a paint additive will automatically spread and create a smooth, glossy finish with minimal surface texture. It is designed to reduce crazing. This pouring medium dries clean, glossy and flexible. It is permanent, non-yellowing and water resistant once dry. This acrylic pouring medium is ideal for high gloss thick glazing and poured marbling technique. It can be mixed with fluid acrylics or soft body acrylic colours but do not mix rapidly and allow mix to sit and bubbles to dissipate.
How to mix Brustro Pouring Medium With Colour?
* Prepare your colours in empty pots by mixing approximately one tablespoon of Brustro Acrylic paint with one cup of Brustro Pouring Medium. The ratio of the paint with the Pouring Medium may differ slightly while using inks or other brand of acrylic paint (student quality acrylic paints will require more colour).
* Stir it with a palette knife or wooden spatula and then let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes to avoid bubbles.
Multiple colours that have been pre-mixed can be added to the Pouring Medium into a pot and then poured onto the surface for a marbled effect .
How to apply the solution on the surface ?
* You can now pour your colour straight from the container or put it into a squeezy bottle / applicator of choice.
* Pour it on to any surface of your choice;canvas, board, card, glass, plastic, metal, cotton and wood.
* To create a marbled effect,one should directly pour the mixed colours on to the canvas next to each other. Then, tilt the canvas in different directions and watch the colours run into each other without mixing and changing them. A palette knife or a cocktail stick can be used to drag the colours into one another.
* Another fantastic creation could be made by dripping the mixed colour down the surface, using pipettes. The paint then should be allowed to run down at a varying speed to create a colourful abstract painting:
