LEARN MY SECRETS TO CREATING STUNNING FLUID ART
I will teach you my recipe for creating beautiful pour paintings and how to mix it correctly to avoid lumps and cracking. I do not recommend nor teach the use of glues or silicone oil for various reasons (I explain why during the class). My recipe is simple and as you will see… very effective!
In all my fluid art workshops, we use Eraldo Di Paolo Artist's Acrylic Paint from Riot Art & Craft.
Please note: Limited spots are available. Up to 20 participants to this class.
