If you haven’t tried paint pouring yet, you are going to love it. If you have tried it, then you know what the obsession is!
As a long time crafter, I love to try new techniques. When DecoArt first introduced their line of paint pouring products, I could not wait to get my hands on some.
Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. My first experience using the pouring medium was these Paint Poured Vases:
Aren’t they fun? One of the best parts about working with the pouring medium, is how easy it is to use. You seriously cannot mess it up.
Just go with it and have fun. It’s a little messy, so be sure to prep your work area. I usually place cardboard down. Also, you may want to wear disposable gloves so you don’t get paint all over your hands, like I did.
Another good thing is, it’s water based so you can clean it up easily with soap and water. A fun craft you can do with the kids are these paint poured popsicle stick bracelets:
Every Easter I love to try new ways to decorate eggs. This year I made decoupaged Easter eggs using dollar store napkins. But those were plastic eggs and I really wanted to try something new on hard-boiled eggs.
I had an aha moment and immediately thought of paint pouring! Let me show you how simple and fun these were to make!
How To Make Fun Paint Poured Easter Eggs
Paint Pouring Supplies
Start by hard boiling your eggs. This is a great article about how to hard boil perfect eggs every time.
Next up, follow the directions for the type of paint that you are using. As I am using acrylic paint, you pour a 1:1 ratio of acrylic paint to pouring medium. I just use dixie cups and craft sticks to mix these:
Then pour one color onto the egg and slowly move it around so the paint spreads.
You can add more than one color to really get the cool effect of the paints merging together.
This photo shows how the fun cell effects that are made with the pouring medium. Be sure to let the eggs dry completely.
