My name is Miranda, @artistmiranda on Instagram, where I’m known for making acrylic paint pouring’s. Because I get a lot of questions about how I create them, I have made a small guide for what I use in my flipcup pieces:

  • Amsterdam acrylic paint
  • Pouring medium (ideal for pouring and dripping)
  • Owatrol Easy Flow (extends the drying time and I think the cells become stronger and larger as a result)
  • Silicone spray (creates the cells)
  • Spa blauw water (paint thinning)
  • Torch gas burner (to create the cells)
  • Water level (if it is not level, the beautiful art could drip away)
  • Cups for the paint
  • Stir sticks
  • Dough scraper (flexible but sturdy for flipping and transferring the cup to the canvas)

Take a look at my demonstration video below to see how I get the paint onto the board/canvas and how I move the paint around to achieve the final look.

You can purchase a complete step-by-step PDF guide including the amount of ingredients you need on my Etsy store here.

Ready, set, go! Have fun and give it your own flip!
