March 2018 Demonstration

Steve Willis demonstrated acrylic paint pouring.

Toni Stanford looks on as Steve starts to pour his colors into plastic cups. Steve squirts WD-40 silicone spray into a cup with acrylic paint in it. Steve pours white paint into a cup as Toni Stanford looks on. Steve pours brown paint into a cup to prepare for applying it to his canvas. Steve holds his canvas up, explaining how he pours the paint onto it. Steve turns the canvas face down onto the top of a plastic cup he has mixed his acrylic paint colors in. Steve tips the canvas over, with the cup still against it. Now the canvas is face-up with the cup upside-down on top of it. Steve tips a second cup with acrylic paint in it onto the canvas. Steve holds both cups upside-down against the canvas, preparing to lift them off. Steve holds both cups upside-down against the canvas, preparing to lift them off. (close-up photo of Steve's hands on the cups) Steve's canvas after he has lifted the cups. There are 2 large puddles of paint colors mixing on the canvas. Steve used a small blowtorch to heat the paint on the canvas to produce areas of color he called 'cells.' Steve tipped the canvas from side to side, letting the paint colors flow across the surface. Toni Stanford and Wilma Sheltman look on as Steve continues to tip his canvas to get the paint to flow. Steve tipped his canvas higher, letting the paint flow off the edges onto a piece of paper he had on his work surface.
