INSTRUCTIONS

  1. There are so many beautiful and fun paint pouring techniques. This artwork was created using a "Dirty Pour" method to create a Geode look. This technique is achieved simply by pouring the paint directly onto the substrate. By using a particular color scheme and ornamentations, you can create this stunning geode look. Let's get started! With a pencil, map out faint lines of where to pour your paint in a basic geode shape.
    Step 0 Example
  2. To catch any drips and run-off, place your canvas on the aluminum pan. To establish the base of the geode, pour White onto the bottom left corner of the canvas.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a stir stick to spread the White out to meet the first drawn line.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Now pour Gold Metallic to the next couple of lines outside of the white.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using White, fill the empty spaces between the gold lines and spread so the colors meet.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Pour True Blue next to the outer gold line to fill the next space.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Add Deep Turquoise and right alongside, create depth with True Blue.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Add True Blue to the top right corner of the canvas. Pour Tropical Blue on top of the Deep Turqoise and True Blue to add more dimension.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Pour White and Gold Metallic in between the True Blue in the corner and the blues in the middle of the canvas.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Use a stir stick to lightly blend the colors.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Pour the clear decorative filler beads into the bottom right corner and press them into the white.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Create gold filler by mixing Gold Metallic and the clear decorative filler together.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Place the gold filler beads in between the white and gold.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Add a little bit of Jet Black to the blues and lightly blend for more depth and to make the blue decorative filler pop.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Pour the blue decorative filler onto the Blues in the middle of the canvas and onto the True Blue in the top right corner.
    Step 14 Example
  16. Let the canvas fully dry.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Pour the casting resin 1/3 of the way in the plastic cup.
    Step 16 Example
  18. Add in equal parts of the casting hardener.
    Step 17 Example
  19. When mixing the resin, use slow motions, scraping the side of the cup to ensure both the parts are adequately mixed together.
    Step 18 Example
  20. Pour the resin onto the middle of the canvas.
    Step 19 Example
  21. Spread the resin with a stir stick so the resin covers the entire canvas.
    Step 20 Example
  22. Let the resin dry for 12 hours and allow the resin to fully cure for 72 hours.
    Step 21 Example
