Hello everyone, this is Tania Baker. Today I’m going to show you how to create flowers, using a pouring technique And to create these effects during the pouring stage itself, rather than after everything is dry There’s so many interesting techniques, using strings, chains So let’s try to make one flower with a string, and one with a chain Here I have a canvas, it’s largely unprimed Here’s what we’re going to need. We could always pour several different colours and mix it all up But we’re going to do something simpler. We’re going to use black for the background, and white for the flower. Here are the paints I’ll be using. This black one is ready mix, mixed in with something already What I’ll do next is take this white paint, and lower some string into it fully On this side I’ll have the string, and on the other, I’ll have the chain The length of the string is going to be twice the length of– OOPS -Of the flower you’re going to want to create Watch out for drops But that look interesting still And now, using this motion, we pull Look what we’ve created! It turned out rather pretty And this string you can easily wash again and again And when it’s dried, then you can take it again and add more to your drawing. But here, I think it’s good enough already! Now with the chain, we’ll do the same thing. Lower it into the glass, and put it on And then you can put the chain into the water If you have a big canvas, you can just use black and white colours), or any other for a minimalistic effect And then when it’s dry, or even now, I would add a red dot (like a ladybird) or another bright spot You can experiment and add whatever you want. I’ll try behind the camera and see if anything comes of it If not – then the video ends here, but if it does – I will show you I really wanted to add a bright red spot, so it’s a good idea to add it onto these white drops You can use a pipette to drop these colours in, add a bit of green too We’ll start from down here Here it mixed in with the red too It’s completely dried now And now I wanna cover it in wax I’m covering my work with this wax medium It says that it’s a great protector and nothing will happen to it, but most importantly there won’t appear any cracks And it dries really fast, too And here I’ll cover it with regular polish, this one It’s matte, so it won’t be shiny And when you put a layer on, note how the flower, and colours, come to life I would really recommend a good quality polish, Windsor & Newton Make sure to choose an ART polish, not for construction, as this one won’t yellow in time Like the videos, if you enjoyed them, and see you again soon!
