About The Event

A Dutch Pour is an acrylic pouring technique that uses air to blow the paint around on the canvas, creating impactful effects. You can use a hair dryer, straw or anything that blows air to make a dutch pour. Dutch pours are known for the ribbon like edges and cool effects like cell lacing which are created with the addition of silicone oil. 

If you sign up for this event, everything you need to create two pieces of art will be posted out to you as well as a step-by-step guide. 

During the live tutorial, Michelle will take you through the process of creating a dutch pour teaching you her tips and tricks to creating art using this satisfying technique. Not quite sure? Watch this video to see How to do a Dutch Pour.
