How to #simplycreate a chain pull pour

Step 1

Mix your colours

Mix each colour in a single cup with a small amount of Simply Acrylic paint and Simply Pouring Medium, using a 1:4 to 1:8 ratio depending on the preferred flow.

Step 2

Stir thoroughly

Stir the mixture thoroughly with a wooden stick or palette knife and cut bean chain of even length for each of the colours.

Step 3

Cover the surface

With a brush cover the full surface of your FW Mixed Media canvas with a generous amount of the mixed white colour.

Step 4

Cover your bead chain in paint

Immerse one bead chain in each colour so that the chain is covered in the paint. Make sure that each chain is fully covered with colour.

Step 5

Paint your design

Place the chain of each colour on the canvas, one at a time, and slowly drag off, resulting in beautiful, spiral-like shapes. Leave your finished artwork on a flat surface and allow 24 hours to dry.

Simply Acrylic Paint

Daler-Rowney Simply Acrylic Paints are a perfect starting point for artists and hobbyists looking to experiment with acrylics. These soft-body water-based colours can be used straight from the tube, wet easily onto the surface, and can be thinned with water.


FW Mixed Media Rigid Canvas

FW Mixed Media canvases feature a rigid surface, ideal for pouring and other techniques requiring a perfectly flat canvas. The traditional wooden frame construction is supplemented by the addition of a rigid board at the top face, beneath the canvas fabric. Triple primed and ready for use, the fabric itself is acid free with a medium grain texture.


Simply Mediums

Daler-Rowney Simply Mediums are the perfect complement of the Simply range of acrylic, oil and watercolour colours. The range is designed to answer all your needs, in the simpliest way!
