Acrylic pouring is a technique in abstract art in which liquid acrylic paint (acrylic paint mixed with water) is used and the colors are blown with the help of a blow dryer. Depending on the color placement, different image compositions can be achieved here. What is special about this technique is that it is impossible to completely control the color, so that the result is partly left to chance every time. 

Alcohol Ink is a relatively new technique in abstract art. In this technique, a few drops of alcohol ink are added to a bottle of high-percentage alcohol (isopropanol) so that they mix into a colored liquid. With the help of a hair dryer, the liquid is dried piece by piece, creating shapes and different color gradients.

Abstract forms and sculptures can also be created on a canvas. This can be achieved with different media: with structure paste, with plaster (left picture) or with clay (right picture). Depending on the look you want to achieve, you choose the appropriate medium. Each medium has its own challenges and peculiarities and can be a lot of fun to work with.

Acrylic flow is a technique in abstract art that uses many different media (but mostly acrylic paint). Mixing and pouring the different media together creates reactions  between the colors that look similar to the natural flow of nature and form superficial structures. 

ACRYLIC POURING

ALCOHOL INK

A particular difficulty with this technique is controlling the fluid. It takes a lot of patience, practice, and attention to the liquid in the desired direction. The possibilities with this technique are manifold, because different color combinations, color gradients and the direction from which the liquid is dried can result in a wide variety of image compositions.

A significant feature of this technique is the absolute uncontrollability of the result. This is exactly what makes the technology particularly exciting, as you have to break away from the need to control and all expectations.
