Above is my entry for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme for this week is Liquid.
This week, I immediately knew what I wanted to shoot. My wife has been discovering her artistic side lately. Being the dedicated husband that I am, I have been encouraging her as much as possible. So, I thought we could collaborate for this week’s challenge. She would supply the artwork and I would supply the photos.
A few months ago my wife discovered acrylic pour paintings. In this process various additives are combined with the paint to manipulate how the paint flows. Once all the additives are thoroughly mixed into each color. The various colors are then combined into a single cup. Think of this process like stacking layers of paint into a cup. The cup full of combined paints is quickly flipped over sealing the rim of the cup to the canvas. She will then slowly lift the cup away and allow the paint to flow across the canvas. The paint can be manipulated by tilting the canvas in the direction she would like the paint to flow into or by the use of various tools.
Below are some additional photos I took while the paint was still in its liquid state and still moving on the canvas.
I apologize for not including a photo of the finished piece. The paint will have to cure and then the painting is washed and sealed. This final process takes about 2 weeks. Perhaps I can provide a photo of the finished painting in a separate post.
If you would like to see more of Jennifer’s work please visit Coastal Moon Studio on Etsy. Her shop is new and therefore she is still adding inventory. She sales earrings & accessories that are made through the pour painting process and she will also be adding some of her original paintings.
