Acrylic Pour Intermediate – Butterfly Project with Christina Miles, September 9, 2018

In this class, you will be using a straw, a paint brush, some skewers and other small items to control your creation. I will be showing you how to make a  fun and whimsical pour and turn it into a butterfly.

My suggestion is to not have the canvases any larger than 8″ x 10″.  My painting is 5″ x 7″, and its a perfect size for my walls. You will need 2 canvases the same size. .

Please note that the pours will not be dry during our class time, we will not be able to assemble the piece.  I will include a printed step by step tutorial for the entire process so you can complete the assembly at home.  It’s very easy, trust me!

Class size limited to 10 students, so please register early.
