Create a paint pour beach scene

In this project, we're setting the scene and stepping you through how to create your own paint pour beach scene.

Instead of tilting the canvas, we used a palette knife to mix the colours around on the canvas, then used a straw to blow the paint around, for a fun take on a pour painting. 

Extra materials you’ll need:

  • Plastic cups
  • Straw
  • Pouring acrylic paint in titanium white (optional)

Reach for a pack of our Golden Beach Pouring Acrylic Paint Kits and a palette knife.

Prop your canvas up using four plastic cups on either corner, to protect the table and begin pouring your gold colour across the top third of the canvas.

Don’t forget the sides of the canvas!

As an additional step, grab some white pouring paint and pour some onto the water to create foamy waves.

Grab a straw and blow the white paint into the sand to blend, remember to blow out, not in!

Straw is used to blow the white pour paint around the canvas.

Continue to blow the paint until you’re happy with the result.
