Pouring Paint Meetup: Ring Pours

Friday, July 12 7-9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, 1975 Puritan Ave., Irving TX 75061. Sponsored by the Irving Art Association.

This Acrylic Night is dedicated to doing acrylic pouring – specifically “ring” pours. (if you wish to work on another art project or pouring technique, you can, of course.)

For videos on technique see the playlist on ring pours at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl-w4JxzL7Qu2DgTyh76iwVwrtsUw7LwG

Note: instruction is FREE but bring your own supplies! (see optional pouring support kit below)

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Free demonstration starts at 7pm so don’t be late.

SUPPLIES REQUIRED:

  1. acrylic paint, any kind (a few colors plus black & white)
  2. a couple of small canvases or canvas boards — 12×12 or smaller
  3. Important! Bring trays or cardboard lids to move your wet paintings home. Paintings will take 2 or 3 days to dry. We will again have a drying table where you can leave small canvases for drying.
  4. Other supplies: pouring medium (Floetrol), plastic gloves, stirring sticks, paper & plastic cups, paper towels, baby wipes, thumbtacks.

The optional Pouring Support Kit will be $5 and will include supplies for a couple of small paintings: pouring medium (Floetrol), plastic gloves, stirring sticks, paper & plastic cups, paper towels, baby wipes, thumbtacks & handout. I’ll also share my silicone and kitchen torch or crafters heat tool. NOTE: the kit doesn’t include paint, canvases, and trays.

You can bring your own supplies if you don’t want to purchase the kit. RESERVE your kit by posting a comment or emailing sharongiles@gmail.com. IMPORTANT: if you buy the pouring support kit, you still need to bring acrylic paint, small canvases & trays.


ACRYLIC NIGHT – anything acrylic!
We’re dedicating this night to acrylic paint. You can paint with it, do printmaking or gelli printing, pour it, create art journal pages etc. Your choice.

If you’re a newbie in a certain technique, post a comment about the type of assistance you’d like. We’ll do our best to assist.

Our sessions are free but bring your own supplies.

We’ll repeat on first Friday night of each month from 7-9pm. Doors open at 6:30.
