Spin it Baby!
August 13, 2018
YES, this art tutorial shows that with just 3 colors — amazing combinations happen like magic!
Check out the Video Lesson on Deliberately Creative – Youtube Channel
Really, the magic happens in 2 main steps –
First pouring the colors individually through the sink strainer starts the magic on its way. The colors start to mingle and then when we remove the strainer.
Second, When we spin the lazy susan, the force of spinning moves the paint from the center out to the edge. In that process it mingles the colors even more and stretches the center designs out and just creates a magical effect!
I’m using Decoart Pouring Medium that dries to a soft almost satin finish when mixed with the Decoart Americana Acrylic Paints.

I love how these paintings take on a life of their own and lead me down paths I would never have thought to explore.

PAINT RECIPE: 4 Parts Decoart Pouring Medium, 1 Part Soft Body Acrylic
I bought all the products in this project, even though I am now a member of the Decoart Helping Artists program.
The Decoart Helping Artists program is a great opportunity for me to learn more and to share tips tricks and information as I explore their products and share what I find out.

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. 🙂

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.
