Debbie Arnold- Completing a Poured Acrylic Skin Collage

Acrylic Artist Debbie Arnold demonstrates how to pull together a poured acrylic skin collage. First, Debbie creates the skins or pourings by mixing Golden Fluid Acrylic paints (http://bit.ly/M11tiw) into large puddles of various Liquitex Acrylic Mediums(http://bit.ly/JCeWhG). From Glazing Medium (http://bit.ly/KYwvYh), Pouring Medium (http://bit.ly/L1azcv), and even Golden Tar Gel (http://bit.ly/L64FuN), Debbie is able to get a completely different effect from each one. After creating several acrylic skins and allowing them to dry, Debbie mounted them onto a canvas (http://bit.ly/JwH4y0) and applied a layer of Liquitex Clear Gesso (http://bit.ly/KBoHwk). She is now ready to integrate the skins by painting in the details with Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint (http://bit.ly/M11tiw). Look for other videos featuring Debbie on Cheap Joe's You Tube Channel showing how these incredible skins are created.
