INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Glue the canvas boards/canvas together, working your way from largest to smallest.
  2. Paint the entire surface of the stacked canvases in Snow White. Let dry. Prepare the area for pouring by placing the dry canvas stack into the large aluminum foil pan.
  3. Pour each Media Fluid Acrylic in its own small cup: Cobalt Turquoise Hue; Gold (Metallic); and Quinacridone Violet. Make a second cup of Cobalt Turquoise Hue with a bit of Titanium White to make a pastel version of this color. Do the same for the Quinacridone Violet (not pictured) to make a lavender shade. Add an equal amount of Pouring Medium to each cup and stir.
  4. Layer all colors (except the lavender) into a single large cup and pour over it the entire surface of the canvases, tilting the stack to move the paint and cover the area.
  5. Pour paint on the rock using only the Lavender color mix and Gold (Metallic). Complete the sculpture by placing the rock on top of the built pyramid; no need for gluing.
