It is obviously very important to understand the surface that you're going to paint. Some surfaces are made for acrylic paints, while others are not and so they don't retain the paints for long.  The best and simplest surface is a canvas sheet or a board, which absorbs and retains the acrylic paints, bringing out the most vibrant and textured colours. So, select the ideal size of the canvas and paint it white. After 24 hours, when it's totally dry, move on to the next step.

A Perfect Pouring Medium

So, there is a variety of pouring mediums available in the market. If you are willing to take this art seriously, then go for more sturdy options. And, if you're doing this for fun, then just stick to a disposable cup or a plastic washable glass. You pour equal amounts of colours, one by one, into the pouring medium. Try with fewer colours at first and increase once you're a pro at this.

Which Colours To Choose

To make an attractive painting you definitely need beautiful shades. And, more so, when you're dealing with a type of painting that is totally based on the abstract flow of colours on the canvas(family handprints on the canvas). That is the highlight and the reason that enhances the appeal of such paintings.  Once you have selected your colour scheme, comprising of complimenting colours or different shades of one colour, then, go ahead and pour the colours in the medium and pour it on the canvas, all at once.

It is essentially the most important step and must be done carefully.  Spread a newspaper on the table before pouring the colours on the canvas and then pour them and move the canvas in different directions, making sure the whole of it is covered with paint. Your painting is almost ready. Let it dry for 24 hours and then cover it with epoxy resin spray. This will protect your painting and make it last longer.
