We love trends and one we’re definitely on board with is Dirty Pouring! But be warned, things could get messy.

This is a completely utensil-free way of painting, and all colours are mixed in a container prior to being poured on to a canvas, clay or some other material.

What’s really cool about this technique is, you just never know what colours are going to hit the paper! The paints mix as they leave the cup and create unexpected colours and effects as they hit the material!

You’ll often tilt the material or use a straw to blow your pour mix around the material, but otherwise your painting is created completely by gravity!

How cool is that?

This video shows just how a dirty pour can work for creating this space style coaster!
