Intro - Basic Pour Painting Workshops

      Learn the basics of using this freeing and addictive Medium to tilt, swirl and create a 12x12" abstract work of art all your own!   No experience necessary.  Designed to let you try the medium before you decide if it's for you.
      This medium separates pigment particles out, reflecting light and giving a luminous feel to the painting, somewhat like fused glass in motion. Color option choices for this are 1) warm golds, oranges and browns with metallic and interference gold, or 2) Blue/sea tones with interference golds, oranges as accent.
Wear painting clothes. Plan to leave your art overnight and pick it up the next day.
