"Some use airbrush medium to mix with paint on gesso'd canvas to make it flow better. If working on raw canvas, you can use water. I'll leave it to other replies at this point. Good luck!"

Acrylic fluid painting

I have been trying to master the technique of swirling acrylic colour around in the canvas like  marbling without success.  I have tried acrylic with flow medium and inks with flow medium but they either do not flow the way I would like or they lose their marbling effect after drying out.  Some have dried with ugly blobs of colour which I didn't want.At this point I do not have any successful fluid art to show so I have not added any.  Does anyone have any tips or suggestin ?See More
