Experimental Paint Pour on Foamcore

Standard

Yesterday I went looking for some cheap canvas and gesso. I came home with 5 sheets of Foamcore. I reasoned that I had saved money getting that for my painting pours – I had never used it before, so it would be interesting to say the least. This was A3 size. Acrylic and water.

It started out well…lovely detail shots here

If only it would stay like that…hrrmph! Like all pours, things change, and this is how it dried out this morning.

ItsĀ alright I suppose…..still some nice detailing mostly….but the beginning was much better. Also, being foamcore, it warped like mad, making the paint pool in the most annoying way!

But hey, its all about the learning. I wonder what else I can use…..
