    You are right. It looks like the ocean and it really is beautiful! I also love that stream of cells you did with the diluted dish soap. That looks fantastic and truly does add to the look of the ocean.

    It’s beautiful! ❤️ I’ve been watching your videos for a long time. You inspired me to create my own fluid art. It would be an honor if you would subscribe to my channel.

    I love this.. funny how I was gonna ask you about the pouring medium from deco art, and what you think. But I know now.

      It’s hard to say though after just 1 try. I cannot really say anything about it at the moment accept that its white and my painting dried well 🙂

    Your Pour was beautiful. I’ve watched other artist use this pouring medium. Most thought it didn’t go very far and would be too expensive to use all the time.

      Thank you. I think they say that because most of them use Floetrol and add a lot of medium to their paint. If you compare cost ofcourse it will be more expensive. Now I don’t know how much the gallon is of this product (if they have one) but if it’s less than the Liquitex pouring medium I’d be willing to buy it to try it out. Like I said in the beginning I don’t normally use that much medium with soft body acrylics. Just depends on your mix. I don’t really follow what others say either. I’d rather practice on my own. But yeah, I’ve heard a lot of negative comments about it too. Meh, to each their own 😉
      Also I believe you can’t really judge a product after using it once. It usually takes time to adapt to using a certain product. IMO.

    Your piece is very appealing and soothing ..you knew just how far to stretch and tip off the paint. I tend to over do it and end up with nothing but wasted paint. Practice more is what I will do and continue to watch you for learning. Thank you for sharing with us.❤

      Thank you so much Karen and yes, practice is key. I like to move it slowly which is why I sped it up 3x cause you would be falling off your chair from boredom LOL I find moving it slowly gives the middle a better chance of expanding and helps you know when to stop 🙂

    Thank you 🙂 I used satin spray for a while at the beginning because I liked how it was an in between of gloss and matte. But I’m in a high gloss phase and have been for a while so I have to say gloss spray varnish is my favorite at the moment 🙂

    You’re hilarious! I have no idea how big it was maybe 16oz? It was the biggest at the dollar store lol. As for pouring over a varnished painting… I’ve never done it. I would use it for resin project instead 🙂
