Pour paint jewelry is created using acrylic paint and usually mixing another medium such as Floetrol, water or other things to make it more fluid. I say usually because due to the popularity of this craft there are now "premixed" paints on the market that you can just open up and go to town. There are many many different techniques used to achieve fantastic results. The run off I get from making one of my paintings is perfect for making jewelry but sometimes I just make a small puddle of a pour on the table and use that to make a pendant. I usually take the glass cabochon and dip directly into the paint. Other times I dry that puddle which is then called a "paint skin" and I can glue to that later and cut around the glass piece and glue it into its setting. Sometimes I will even glue to a canvas which has already been painted and use that. Then it is truly like you are wearing a mini painting which is why we also like to use the term "wearable art".
Other terms you may encounter to describe these items: acrylic pour jewelry, pour paint jewelry, acrylic painted jewelry, acrylic skins jewelry, acrylic dips jewelry, fluid art jewelry, fluid art pendants or earrings, abstract art jewelry, handcrafted acrylic jewelry, acrylic art pour, paint pour jewelry, and many more I'm sure, hahaha.
Hi! My name is Kelly. Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to stop by.
I’m a self-employed full time hairstylist but in my spare time I love to create. In one way or another, Art has always been with me. In fact, My Mom used to paint; and when I was growing up she came to my elementary school as a guest speaker for some Art History lessons. (Honestly those lessons never stuck with me, haha).
