tidal wave canvas paint pour

Paint Pour a canvas to add to your home décor.
Step 1

Place a piece of palette paper on your working surface.

Step 2

Turn your canvas over and add a pushpin to each corner on the back. Turn the canvas back over and place the canvas in the middle of your palette paper.
TIP: The pushpins elevate the canvas and allows excess paint to flow over the edges. This way your edges will not stick to your working surface, and you end up with smooth edges.

Step 3

Pour paint in puddles around your canvas. Add layers of varying paints to the puddles.

Step 4

Also, in a disposable cup, add layers of your paints. Be careful not to mix the paints, they should remain layered in your cup. Pour in open spaces on your canvas.
TIP: Protect your hands with a pair of disposable gloves.

Step 5

Pick up your canvas and tilt it side to side to move the paint as desired. You want to make sure the surface is covered.

Step 6

Place the canvas back on the palette paper and let completely dry.
TIP: The paint will continue to level out and any excess will drip over the side.
