Tips for Creating Cells
Follow these important steps to create the best cells using the previous acrylic pouring cells recipe.
- Don't use too much silicone in your paint mix. Just add 1 drop/1 oz of paint mix in the colors where you want your cells to appear.
- Don't overmix your silicone into your paint mix. Overmixing will break the oil into tiny particles which will create tiny cells rather than big cells.
- Be patient. Pour your paint, torch, let the cells develop, and then tilt so that your cells can stretch and look even bigger.
If you decide not to use the previous acrylic pouring cells recipe, you can still create cells with almost any other pouring medium recipe as long as you follow the previous tips.
