Fluid Art
This artform is addictive and we all know it. You also see it and love it. Small step to give it a try then. Quickly we find out it’s not that easy… We reads blogs and groups and see videos. Here are lots of great tutorials and all. And then we start. But don’t understand WHY things happen or what is affecting the Painting wondering what’s going on?I made a 10 minutes video to cover WHY and I would like to share some inside as it comes back to questions I see every day. I think it turned out well covering paint, mixing ratios, Pouring medium, cleaning and Varnish from WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT ITS BACKGROUND (how to I cover in other videos).
So for all newbies and people who are curious of why things do what they do in this artform I hope you enjoy it.

Over the artist:
Hi. My name is Santana Hagedorn ans artist for acrylic paint pouring and fluid art from the Netherlands. This form of abstract and modern decorative painting is done with Acrylics brought to the right consistency with various pouring mediums, oils and additives. By moving the paint layers, playing with different tools or adding heat I create different effects. Very messy and very fun. The Paintings can be don’t know canvas, MDF frames, tiles or other flat surfaces. Can also be used to make daily items and gifts unique f.ex. little boxes or ornaments.

  1. Hi. Please be kind with comments. This is my opinion I share and there might be more or different advise or knowledge. I try to help here to understand what's going on with this art form. So no need for "know it all" comments.. Just give it a thumb's up if you like it please!

  2. A very sensible straight forward explanation, there is one point that you did not cover which is the natural density of paints. Some paint pigments are heavier than others and this will also effect the making of cells. A little complicated but worth looking into. Thanks.

  3. I've just got into acrylic pouring and watched a lot of videos where they go on about how you must have the right consistency, but you are the only one so far to properly explain what that consistency should look like! Art and science really do go hand in hand, and it really helps so much to understand the science behind this, so thank you very much! xo

  4. I heard some details about pouring I never heard before. So, it is amazing. Great video and keep them going. I appreciate your effort very much. Thank you

  5. I love your playlist for beginners: finally someone who is clearly explaining what are the different pouring methods and pros and cons for each, how to get the right consistency to make cells and how it works, why it is important to clean the paint… And not just starting at the flip cup stage… Thank you, thank you, thank you! Have a wonderful day and please continue :)

  6. I am just learning pouring, but have achieved a couple successful ones. Your videos have been a great help! But, you say no more than 30% water or medium. My favorite ones are more like 95% medium and some fluid acrylic ink. What do you think about this procedure?

  7. GREAT VIDEO! Wish I'd had this when I first started. Look forward to your other's. I've been pouring for the past four months, make many and some amazing ones. Yes, it is a very addictive love of art.

  8. I agree with the others. I like to know why things work. This is the best explanation I have come across. Thank you. I'm looking forward to watching more of your videos.

  9. You have a wonderful understanding and explanation of the paints !! I'm recommending you to new people!! I found you a few days ago then I lost you..but you're back!!! Excellent tutorial!

  10. very informative and giving the beginner all they always want to know ! Clear, easy to understand and professional explanation ! It was definitely worth making "speaking" video. You are a brilliant tutor, thank you <3

  12. thank you so much for this wonderful and very informative video.. you are an excellent teacher.

  15. Thank you for your clear, no nonsense explanation. I love your pouring methods and will continue to follow your example. I too am Dutch but live in Australia. 🎨👍

  16. This is the first video I've found that explains how the silicone works. I appreciate that.

  17. I can totally relate to Santanas comment above, as an addict to pouring techniques, I almost had to learn chemistry of the this lovely art form. I have absolutely learnt from this video and will be using mediums with a bit more knowledge.
