How to Make a Blues Paint Pour

Pour some color on it... blue to be exact! Create your own work of art with this abstract Blues Paint Pour canvas. This project can be a bit messy so be sure to be prepared, but more importantly, have fun with it! Once complete, you can add this canvas to any decorative space.
  • 1 Protect work area

    This is a messy project, so cover your work surface with the plastic tablecloth to keep it clean.

  • 2 Elevate canvas

    Use the disposable cups to elevate the canvas above the work surface.

  • 3 Separate paints

    Pour about 1 tbsp. of each paint color into separate cups.

  • 4 Mix paint

    Add the pouring medium and water to make paint as thick as coffee creamer. Mix thoroughly with a craft stick until there are no lumps.

  • 5 Pour colors onto canvas

    Pour two to three puddles of a color onto the canvas. Pour another color in the center of each puddle and continue adding colors in the center of each puddle. Paint will pour over the edges of the canvas.

  • 6 Mix puddles

    Run two fingers or a craft stick through the puddles, lightly mixing them together.

  • 7 Pick up & tilt canvas

    Pick the canvas up and tilt it to allow the paint to mix. Paint will pour over the edges of the canvas.

  • 8 Allow canvas to dry

    Place the canvas back on the cups and allow it to drip and dry overnight.
