Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom! I am so excited to be teaming up with my friend Sheri from Hazel and Gold Designs to offer you a chance to win a Paint Pouring Bundle from DecoArt.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sheri in person at a bloggers conference in July and we talked about collaborating  on this post.

We both love DecoArt and enjoy trying out new craft and DIY projects.

Be sure to visit her blog to see what she made with the paint pouring medium as well. Trust me, you will love her blog!

Paint Pouring On A Vase

My biggest advice when paint pouring is to prep your work space as this is messy-fun, but messy. I placed a large plastic trash bag down first, then used a large cardboard box to hold the vase.

Follow the directions on the pouring medium for mixing with your paint. I used acrylic paint (which is also included in the giveaway), so it is a 1:1 ratio of pouring medium to acrylic paint.

I am sharing the photos from the paint poured popsicle stick bracelets as I used the same paint and pouring process.

It’s as simple as pouring each color of paint on the item you are working with and tipping it and turning it until the entire piece is covered.

It’s fun to see how the paint flows and forms cool designs.

For the mason jar I added a touch of pink acrylic paint and also left off the top coat. You can see the large vase has more of a glazed look to it.

The top coat gives it a very professional, finished look.

I can’t wait to make a large canvas using this process. Stay tuned for that next!

You really need to just have fun with it and see what the paint does. It’s not an exact science and you might have to play around a little.

Also, it’s important to let the paint completely dry prior to pouring the top coat. It does take some time to dry, depending on the vessel you use.

I love how the large vase turned out. The streaks of paint are pretty cool and it looks like something you would buy from an art studio.

Can you do the pouring on a terra cotta pot? I have done it on vases and loved how they turned out!

Yes! Absolutely. I have done it on smaller clay pots to test them. Isn’t paint pouring fun? Did you see the Easter eggs I made? 😀

[…] As a long time crafter, I love to try new techniques so when DecoArt first introduced their line of paint pouring products, I could not wait to get my hands on some! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! My first experience using the pouring medium was these Paint Poured Vases: […]

Ok, now I know what I was doing wrong with paint pouring - I wasn't using the medium!! Whoops! I'll have to try it again now!
