Center of interest

An emphasized area of the composition
There is nothing like a new medium and a new technique to get the old heart pumping. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes not so much. In my case I was overly excited about my Deco Art's Media Fluid Acrylics...just like spring I couldn't wait to get out there and play with them!

 As soon as I got them I researched Fluid Acrylics to learn as much as I could. So what are they? They are acrylic paints that have a thin consistency which is designed to spread and flow easily without sacrificing color intensity.

I did discover that these are more heavy body and to do a true Acrylic pour technique you will need to add a touch of water and some type of medium like glazing liquid...BUT I do think they will be awesome on a gelli print and that is my next thing to try out, so enjoy the slideshow and next time we will do some mono printing!!
( yes there is music so do whatever you need to do, lol )

You are so much fun! I could see me doing something exactly like this!

How fun Sandee! I don't think you could have made a better looking face and expression for that sentiment! He is precious. Looks like such messy fun. Never tried monoprinting yet. Good to know you can mix water with those paints, as I have had some great success with acrylics with water, and other times it siezes up.

LOL!! I think it turned out just the way it should have... I LOVE your little angry cat!! Looks like these paints might have a bit of a learning curve.
