Paint Swirl Effects: Free Download and Tutorial

Hello! Today I have a new free download and a tutorial showing how you can make paint swirl effects using Liquitex Pouring Medium and acrylic inks.

Here's how it's done:

Here's where to download the high resolution scan of the finished image that you can use in your own artwork:

Materials used:

  • Liquitex Pouring Medium
  • Daler Rowney Acrylic Artist Ink -and/or- Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink
  • Generic clear squeeze bottles
  • Gessoed Art Board by Speedball 12" x 16" x 1/8"
  • Matte Medium (any brand will do)
  • Cardboard box to catch ink runoff
  • Paper cups to lift art board (so it doesn't adhere to the cardboard box)

I hope you like this week's tutorial and free download. Go give this a try. Make a bit of a mess, and see what you can come up with!
