Acrylic painting is a very tiny contributor to the microplastics problem. If you wish to make a real impact it would be more effective to encourage industry to make changes, as they are the major contributors. As an artist, I am grateful that artist paint contributes very little to the problem, and that my painting practice is probably the smallest part of my own environmental impact.

Before you start painting you’ll also need to make sure your painting surface is clean. You should remove any dust or large particles of dirt with a lint-free cloth. Also make sure the surface is completely grease free. Any residual grease can cause improper adhesion of paint. Mixing Your Paints and Pouring Medium The mould will be coming from the paint being so diluted that the fungicidal component is no longer sufficient to counteract the microbes in tap water. If you want to avoid the mould and accompanying bad smell, and still use the evaporation method – you could switch to wide, shallow trays, not covered except perhaps with some type of fine mesh to prevent insects falling in. Then when the water is gone, wipe out the sludge and bin it with the paper towel.


Hi Levon, thank you for your message. We do make a number of recommendations in the blog post about what to buy to get started with acrylic pouring, but the basic things you need are a canvas/surface, some pouring medium and some acrylic paint. The thinner the better for the paint so it is easy to mix with the pouring medium, so either s soft body paint, like Liquitex soft body, or Golden Fluid, or an acrylic ink, such as Liquitex Ink. I assume that it doesn’t work to be used a second time, as it’s full of water. So I think the method is mostly intended for disposal of partial tins of house paint, a once in a decade DIY activity, not for regular use with loads of water. If used regularly like that it seems like you’d need to use fresh kitty litter as a sponge each time you threw away water. Are you binning it when it is a solid? I think natural kitty litters are pellets made of vegetable fibres. They are also just intended to absorb the water, but less efficiently.

Fluid acrylics are good for many different ways of painting. They are the best acrylic paints to use for watercolor-like effects without diluting the color, since it takes less water to thin them than is needed to thin heavier-bodied acrylics. For watercolor effects, thin the paint down even more than you normally would. A ratio of one part paint to three parts water should be enough to break down the acrylic binder so that the paint acts like watercolor. Acrylic is an incredibly useful plastic for applications requiring transparency where high impact resistance is not an issue. Acrylic is very scratch resistant compared to other clear plastics. It is a lighter alternative to glass and an economic substitute for polycarbonate in applications where strength is not a crucial factor. It can be cut into extremely fine shapes using laser cutting technology because the material vaporizes upon impact with the concentrated laser energy. Because of its brittle failure and relatively low strength, we don’t often use Acrylic. Instead, we prefer to use PC or PETG. PC and PETG might not be as clear as Acrylic, but they are usually “clear enough”. If optical clarity is of extreme importance, than we will use Acrylic. We have machined Acrylic on the CNC, and also made hand-formed pieces. Usually after machining, the parts need to be polished to remove the tool marks and restore the optical clarity.

Hi there! I am a retired professional illustrator and I have used acrylic paint in my artworks in the late sixties, seventies and eighties. Mostly using Liquitex brand. However, I’m not familiar with this pouring paint version of these paints and I’m somewhat fascinated with some of the results of using these paints and technics. My question is: in a simple terms without complicated terminologies, what do you recommande I buy at this time to start with experimenting this version of creating some interesting art. What bran, glossy or not, ( I prefer glossy of course) and quantities of paint, since there’s so much waste of paint in this process. What is the best mixing medium to get etc. Obviously I do not have issues with composition and design, and I do know how to draw unlike some of these artists that I have seen on line. 🙈🙃😂 Zetina, Sandra et al.

The average setting time is between 24 – 48 hours depending on the amount of product used. We recommend leaving the finished vase arrangement on a level surface for at least 36 hours at 22º-29ºC. Cooler temperatures will cause the material to cure slower. Do not move or touch your vase until it is completely set.The one feature differentiating acrylic from other transparent plastics is its excellent weathering properties. Acrylic plastic sheets are easy to process and blend with organic solvents and adhesives. In the scheme of all the plastic in the world, paint is a very small portion. Then, of that small portion, the amount of microplastic that comes from all types of paint (house paint, car paint, etc.) is extremely small as most ends up on walls and cars, as it was intended to. When you then consider that artist colour is an extremely small part of the coatings market compared with decorators and paint used in a whole range of industries, it’s clear that artists play a tiny, nearly invisible part, and furthermore, most artist paint goes on a canvas or board so doesn’t go down the drain. The environmental impact from the amount of plastic involved in painting with acrylic is very small compared to the amount of plastic in your shampoo, washing up, and milk bottles, for instance. You release a lot more microplastics into the environment from your washing machine if you wear clothes made with synthetic fabrics, than you do from occasional acrylic painting water. (Even if you wear synthetic clothes you can help by not buying new garments as often because most microplastics in the wash come off in the first few washings, so don’t change it out for a new garment as often. Or switch to cotton or wool.) This is an easy method to completely separate all solids from your paint water. It’s three steps: 1) stir in two powders, wait for the dirty water to flocculate and the solids to start to settle to the bottom, 2) test the pH of the water with a strip of litmus paper, 3) pour through a coffee filter. The surface tension adheres the moving water to the entire face of the globe, resulting in the stunning illusion of a floating ball of ever flowing water. Zieler pens are made with highly-pigmented paint, durable fibre nibs and designed with a spring-like mechanism that regulates the amount of paint that leaves the tip. 7. Colour Range and Finish

If it was bothering you, then that sounds like a good choice. Watercolours are lovely! But remember, artists paints aren’t even a teensy part of the problem, we are very much smaller than that.

You’ll find a grey-white acrylic residue/sludge will have settled out leaving a clear coloured liquid above it. The colour is the dye from organic pigments (pthalocyanines etc). Pour the liquid down the sink making sure you don’t disturb the acrylic layer. If the acrylic hasn’t settled out yet you need third milk container but I find it only takes a couple of days. Although dried filter papers seem to contain pigment in a solid form that can make marks a bit like a soft pastel, I’m not sure that it could be made into paint again. If so, it would have a lot of fillers – both the plastic particles and the two powders. So someone will need to experiment with that! Now that we know what it is used for, let’s examine some of the key properties of Acrylic. PMMA is classified as a “thermoplastic” ( as opposed to “thermoset” ), and the name has to do with the way the plastic responds to heat. Thermoplastic materials become liquid at their melting point (160 degrees Celsius in the case of Acrylic). A major useful attribute about thermoplastics is that they can be heated to their melting point, cooled, and reheated again without significant degradation. Instead of burning, thermoplastics like Acrylic liquefy, which allows them to be easily injection molded and then subsequently recycled. Acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic homopolymer known more commonly by the trade name “plexiglass.” The material is similar to polycarbonate in that it is suitable for use as an impact resistant alternative to glass (particularly when the high impact strength of PC is not required). It was first produced in 1928 and was brought to market five years later by Rohm and Haas Company. It is generally considered one of the clearest plastics on the market. Some of the first applications were in WWII when it was used for submarine periscopes as well as airplane windows, turrets, and canopies. Airmen whose eyes were injured due to shards of broken acrylic fared much better than those affected by shards of shattered glass.
