Fluid Art 101

Hey Lovelies and welcome back to the blog!!!

I hope everyone is social distancing. I know this time is tough for a lot of people with missing work and kids being out of school. I’ve watched a lot of shows and movies since I’ve been off work and doing everything I can to enjoy this time off.

Today I am finally telling, and somewhat showing, you guys about one of the kinds of paintings I’ve been wanting to try… fluid art or pour painting. I stumbled upon this kind of painting on Pinterest of course and couldn’t wait to try it out.

I purchased the main products from Hobby Lobby and made my way to my destination to complete my painting. I’d binged multiple videos on both pinterest and youtube to see how it was done. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. I didn’t fill the cup with enough paint to fill the entire canvas and pretty much gave up after my first try.

Fast forward to about a month later I decided to give it a try again. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased more products I needed, got to my destination, and got to work. I still failed a couple times but eventually I got it right and was so excited. Check out below for a list of what you’ll need and a step by step process. It’s actually very easy and the end result is impossible to be considered wrong.

Items Needed

  • Paint (I got the pre-mixed paint)
  • Canvas
  • Cups
  • Gloves
  • Protective cover for your space


  • Prepare you’re space with all the products you need .
  • Fill cup with alternating colors. Depending on how big the canvas is will determine how much paint you use.
  • Pour paint on the canvas. I did the flip cup way.
  • Tilt the canvas back and forth to your liking.
  • Let dry. It take a couple days to dry. I propped my paintings on the cups

Anywho, it’s super easy once you get the hang of it. These painting are absolutely beautiful and no two paintings ever looks the same. Check out my youtube to view a video of how I accomplished these paintings.
