/r/Pourpainting has gone private in protest of Reddit's attack on 3rd Party developers and not-for-profit API users. We recommend contacting Reddit administrators to let them know you do not support their corporate hostility, and demand they reverse their stance. Search "Reddit API" in your browser of choice to find more context.

NEW TO ACRYLIC POURING?

Posts must be directly related to pour painting and other fluid arts.

  • Images of things "inspired by" or "reminiscent of" pour painting will be removed.

  • Digital posts will be removed, unless they contain the original, unedited version of your painting displayed as the first image in the post. Digital alterations, like level balances, photoshopped additions, staging backdrops, etc. can be fun to see, but this subreddit is dedicated to the physical medium, not digital.

  • Art must be some form of fluid/poured medium, like acrylic pours, alcohol inks, resin pours, etc. Non-related abstract art, oil painting, brush-painted pieces, etc. will be removed.

  • Artists are allowed and encouraged to share links to their work outside of Reddit, like youtube, etsy, instagram, etc.

  • NFT/Crypto is not allowed, not as a main post and not as a comment, whether or not the content features pour painting.

  • If the author of any post wants criticism and critique, they'll ask for it.

  • Paintings with NSFW themes are allowed, when properly flaired. NSFW content outside of the painting itself is not allowed.

Posting Other Artist's Work

  • ONLY if you link to their website/profile.

  • Posting sourceless art will result in a warning, then a ban. Taking credit for another artist's work will result in an immediate ban.

  • If you can't find a source, link the art inside a self-post and ask.

Selling Your Art

  • OK to post one (1) direct link to purchase new art per day. Don't spam!

  • Reddit has no buyer/seller protection, so sell through etsy, ebay, paypal with seller receipts, etc.

Reddiquette

  • When posting multiple paintings, site-wide guidelines suggest you should present multiple images in a single post (or Imgur album), rather than submitting multiple posts to the subreddit in a row.

  • If you want to share additional photos or videos of the same painting, please wait at least one day to submit a new post.

  • Moderators may remove back-to-back posts if the submission rate is excessive, in order to maintain a fair community standard for all users.

User Flair

  • Edit user flair underneath the 'subscribe' button.

  • Choose the social media/store you can be found on, and enter your username so others can look up more of your work! Message the mods if your platform of choice isn't an available flair.

  • If you want to use the 'Discussion' flair, be sure to start a discussion in the comments immediately after posting. The flair means you are starting a discussion and are ready to participate with other redditors. If you want critique on your piece, use 'Critique' instead of 'Discussion'.

Be Safe!

  • Exercise caution and stay safe.

  • Work in a well-ventilated area.

  • Follow good fire safety when torching.

  • Don't eat/drink art supplies, etc.

  • /r/PourPainting only advocates safe & responsible painting practices!

I’ve recently been taking the left over skins and making carved stone jewelry

This is my first post, I hope I’ve done this correctly. I’d love y’all’s feedback and critique. Thank you for taking a look!

Practicing-why does this happen

I’m new to this and just practicing. Why did the blue in this that I circled turn weird and look over mixed? Is it because I messed with it too much? I first poured the two blue and purple sections then added in the pink when I thought it needed something. And when I moved the pink around the blue turned like this. Thoughts appreciated. Thanks

Did this one a couple days ago and LOVE it! I used pre-mixed paints from both HL and Dollar Tree (surprisingly) with 3 open cups.

Amsterdam Pearls have created what is now, by FAR, my favorite painting.

I’ll post a video too, but may be a separate post because Imgur is being difficult. I’ll also post a picture when it’s dry because it will definitely look a little different dry.

Poseidon's Anguish

This is the final of an earlier posting. Now dried, sealed and named. Photo taken outside to enhance colors.

The colors whirl around like a sea of anguish and disdain. Don't get caught in the current. The Gods' are ruthless when distraught.
