     Acrylic pour painting has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. It is a versatile technique that can produce stunning, unique works of art with little to no experience required. One popular method of acrylic pour painting is the dirty pour technique, which involves layering different colors of paint in a container before pouring them onto a canvas. If you are interested in trying this technique, offers Pour Box Kits that include everything you need, including high-quality, made in Canada Apollon-Gotrick birch wood panels.

     One of the benefits of using Paint-tastic by Ellie Pour Box Kits is that the paint is pre-mixed, meaning there is no need to worry about clumps or inconsistencies in the final piece. The pour paints used in these kits do not clump and dry without any cracking. In addition, depending on the pouring technique and tilting, they can produce good cell action, adding another layer of depth and interest to your artwork.

     To get started with your Pour Box Kit, simply pour the pre-mixed paint colors into a the supplied cup and then slowly pour them onto your canvas, tilting the cup slightly to create patterns and blending. One of the exciting things about the dirty pour technique is that it is impossible to predict exactly how your painting will turn out, making it a fun and unpredictable creative process.

     When working with the dirty pour technique, it is important to be patient and allow your painting to dry completely before moving or framing it. Acrylic paint dries relatively quickly, but it can take several days for a pour painting to dry completely. Once your painting is dry, it can be sealed with a varnish or UV-resistant spray to protect it from fading or discoloration over time.
