Pouring technique – the hottest trend in acrylic painting

For this technique, acrylic colours can be mixed with a special pouring medium, stacked in different layers in a bin and afterwards be poured onto the painting ground. The colours flow – depending on the mixing ratio with the medium and the composition – more or less uncontrolled into another and form spectacular and bizarre results while drying.

Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

Just some days before Christmas you probably are very busy with preparations for a great Christmas eve and well-chosen presents. We would like to present you some high-quality Schmincke colour boxes for creative people for nearly all techniques, which are still available at your retailer as a perfect last-minute present. We also would like to inspire you with a step-by-step mixed media collage of our French artist Denise Crolle-Terzaghi which can be realized spontaneously before Christmas and which suits as an individual present, too. As in our example - or varied by you -, the creation promises great fun! A special trend and brandnew in our assortment is an acrylic medium for the pouring technique – the Pouring medium. We will introduce it and show you what it does.

We wish you a peaceful Christmas time and an inspired New Year 2018.


Your Lightfast-Team
