HOW TO CREATE PAINT POURING CANVAS ART

Lay down the plastic dropcloth (included) and put on gloves (included). Place four cups on the dropcloth and place the canvas on top. This will allow the paint to drip down the sides of the canvas and also allow the canvas to have a raised platform for drying.

Select your desired colors and place each color into a separate cup.

 Add three to four drops of Cell Magic to each color and stir lightly with a stick (included).

Starting with metallic or lightest color, pour the paint into one of the other cups. DO NOT STIR PAINT. Note: I took the gloves off to get a better grip on the cup.

 Pour the paint on to the canvas and tilt the canvas to distribute the paint.

Be sure to let the paint drip over the sides of the canvas to cover, then wipe away any excess paint from the bottom and leave to dry overnight.
