I Use a scale to measure my paint, water and pouring medium. It is more accurate and consistent to use a scale and way faster!

You do need a cup or container for each color. Little plastic cups are great if you are saving leftover paints.
You can use small paper water cups if you are not going to try and save the paint. Paper cups will fall apart more quickly.
You will also need some craft sticks and a pair of gloves to to make it easier to keep your hands clean.
You can experiment with any pouring mediums–just do them proportionally small batches until you are confident that your combinations will work.
On to the Recipes!
Put your cup on the scale press the button to set the scale to zero and follow the measurements as you add each item to a cup for each color.
All of the colors were mixed in a ratio of 6 parts Liquitex Pouring Medium to 1 part Paint. I used 30 grams Liquitex Pouring Medium and 5 grams paint NO water.

There’s no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of heating the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. I’m also concerned with the possible issues down the line with the paint not forming a good bond with the surface because of the oils preventing proper adhesion.
We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful, but there can be consequences we don’t know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. 🙂
I have a creative spirit that loves to explore and experiment with all kinds of Arts and Craft! I hope you have fun while you join me on my creative adventures!
The most important things you need to be successful with any of my creative projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.
I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.
