A Pinterest search of the terms "paint pouring," "acrylic pouring," or "marbling," will send you down a rabbit-hole of great projects and techniques! For the purpose of this tutorial, I'll be using the term "paint pouring." As part of the Rust-Oleum, Creator Studio community, in which anyone can join, I was sent a package of Testor's products to try out. This is only one way to paint pour, there are many other techniques that can be used. I'm making a trio of "pumpkins" for a little fall decor. Prior to pouring the paint, I sprayed the rounds with Rust-Oleum's metallic rust color spray paint. Painting the wood helps the paint to move more smoothly across the surface of the wood.
To paint pour, you need paint and a pouring medium. Testors calls theirs a Marbling Medium. Most brands call theirs a pouring medium. The Testors brand is mixed in a 1 to 1 ratio, that is, one part paint to one part marbling medium. So if you use a tablespoon of paint, you'll need to stir in a tablespoon of marbling medium. This medium thins the paint so that it is able to move over the surface of the project you are creating.
