Acrylic Hammer Smash Lazy Susan

This was done in acrylic paint with a technique called a hammer smash.

My lazy Susan hammer smash was accomplished after quite a few trials and errors, but I finally achieved my goal. I am very happy with the outcome. Fluid art is one of those mediums that has a mind of it’s own, so to speak, but you do need to use your artist eye as well. My extensive back ground in all types of mediums has helped with this process. There are a lot of different variables in getting the paint the right consistency and learning how to multipulate it once you have chosen how you want to deliver it to your substrate.

If you are interested in this form of art I would suggest you watch my video. At the least you should get a laugh or two!

If you look close you can see that I have started imbellishing some of the flower stalks with a brush and some acrylic paint.

Quick video describing process of acrylic pour/squish . Plan on imbellishing hidden leaves and flowers with acrylic paints. More in detail videos to come.  This is a great way to create exciting back grounds or leave as is for a very unusual piece of art. There are all kinds of opportunitys with this type of art. I would highly recommend trying it for yourself. It is so much fun as well as being a jumping off point into other forms of art. At the least you will have a barrel of fun so give it a go!!

Acrylic Pour Paintings

Hello friends! Update on my latest artist endeavor. I decided I needed to find an art form that used a lot of paint so I could utilize my paint stash. As I was browsing YouTube one night I came across acrylic pouring. I had heard of the art form before but it didn’t catch my interest at the time. When you see all my pictures you will see it caught my interest this time. It is so addictive I can’t wait to see what will come out of the next pour. I want to start filming the process but haven’t taken the time to set up my camera, because I am too busy pouring paint, LOL! Also have the materials to do some resin pours as well. Will post those when I get a bit better at it. With resin you have to work really fast because it dries so fast, and it is expensive, in comparison to acrylic’s. But I won’t let that stop me. Will post more later, but for now got to get out to the art studio and pour some more paint!! LOL!! Also have a garden scene in oil’s I am working on in between pouring paint. Hope to have it finished shortly. That is if I can control my obsession for pouring…have an idea to incorporate my traditional painting with the acrylic pours. Stay tuned for more crazy paintings idea’s.. XOXO’s Barbie
