Let's get started. 

#1. Flower Over a Black Background

You really must see this AMAZING acrylic pour FLOWER painting!!! It is a gorgeous flower made of only 4 colors. This painting is using the reverse flower dip technique with a paper napkin.


Flower shaped dessert cup

8x8 inch canvas

Paper napkin or towel

Wooden Skewer


Butane Gas

Black paint for the base coat

Naples Yellow paint for flower

Amsterdam Greenish Blue

Bordeaux Red paint

Titanium White paint

Vallejo Pearl Medium

Acrylic Binder

Pouring Medium


Mix your black, greenish blue, bordeaux red, and naples yellow paint with pouring medium to the right consistency. Mix your titanium white paint with Vallejo pearl medium and pouring medium in the following ratios (1 part Vallejo pearl medium, 1 part titanium white, 2 parts pouring medium). You can also add a little acrylic binder to each paint mixture to help prevent paint cracking.

Pour your black base on the canvas.

Put your flower shaped dessert cup with the bottom up.

Pour paints on top of the cup alternating between the blue, red, yellow, and white colors.  

Take off the cup and use the skewer to draw some petal shapes.

Gently put a paper towel on the canvas. Gently lift each end of the paper towel one at a time and gather the corners in the middle. Then hold the corners of the paper towel and lift the paper towel off the painting.

Torch it to remove air bubbles and to activate pearl white.

#2. Purple Dutch Pour Flower

I love this painting since it is pretty easy to do and you get a beautiful purple flower. This painting uses the dutch pour technique.


Golden Metallic 

Titanium White 

Violet paint

Mars Black




Butane Gas


Mix your violet, metallic gold, mars black and titanium white paints with floetrol and water. The creator mixed 1 part paint, 2 parts floetrol, and a little bit of water until she reached the desired consistency. 

Pour your white base on the canvas.

Pour your paints as you see in the video tutorial above.

Then use your lungs to blow the paint into a flower shape like shown on the video.

Use a torch to remove air bubbles.

#3. Red Flower Made with String

This red flower painting is so beautiful yet it uses very little supplies. It uses a curly string along the the string pull technique.


Black paint

Deep Yellow

Cadmium Red 

Palette Knife

Curly String

8x8 inch canvas

Elmer's Glue-all


Separately mix your black, red, and yellow acrylic paints with Elmer's Glue-all in a 8:10 ratio. Then add a little bit of water to the mix to get your desired pouring consistency. 

Pour your black base on the canvas.

Dip the string into the red paint, place the string on top of your canvas, and drag it like shown on the video tutorial above. Repeat this procedure to make several flower petals.

Finally add some yellow paint in the center of your flower in small strokes using your palette knife.
