Pouring medium photo frame project

What you will need:

  • X-Press It Pouring Medium (available in 250ml and 1lt)
  • Wooden frame
  • Amsterdam Acrylic Ink
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Mixing Cups

Place a protective surface under the canvas to catch pouring medium running off the edges. We used a plastic bag. Lay canvas flat and elevate from the protective surface.

Step 1:  Pour approximately 50ml of pouring medium into each of your cups.

Step 2: Add approximately two squirts of acrylic ink to the pouring medium. Mix well and leave cups to settle so that bubbles rise to the surface. Make sure all ink is dissolved into the pouring medium. Repeat with each desired colour.

Step 3: In a new cup carefully pour each colour. Allow the cup to settle allowing any bubbles to rise to the surface. 

Step 4: Pour the mixed cup of colours onto your photo frame piece. Make sure you are not pouring too close to the edge of the wood. 

Step 5: Move the frame around  to ensure all the wood is covered. The colours may appear cloudy initially but should dry bright and vibrant. 

Step 6: Ensure the surface is level and flat. Let dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Once dry place a photo in your frame and put it on display.
