Pour painting is a type of craft where you use fluid acrylics to pour onto a surface of some kind to create one-of a-kind mixed color effects. We’ve used the technique few different ways and this DIY beachy paddle is our latest paint pouring craft.
Pour Painting on a Wooden Surface
Remember when I said I was hooked on pour painting? Well this beachy-inpired wooden paddle is another fun example of what you can make with this simple painting technique. We previously shared the tutorial for making this paint poured seahorse and I’ll soon be sharing the DIY for making a pretty paint poured bookmark.
Of course this type of craft can be done a different surfaces, most often an artist’s canvas. But I really like the effect of paint pouring on differe wood surfaces and now that I think of it, I have the perfect plain fish-shaped wood surface to try this craft on! Stay tuned for that craft too! These wooden surfaces can be found at any local craft store, on Amazon or most inexpensively from a thrift store or dollar store.
