Dirty Pour Done With Clients

In this video I am basically demonstrating the importance of mixing together the correct items needed to make a dirty pour. Please remember to place masking tape on the back of your canvas first. Otherwise the paint may rub off on  your wall. The tape can be gently peeled off after your painting dries. 

About Me

Artist and Blogger

I am a blogger and artist located in the D.C. Metro Area. I create oil and acrylic paintings, surface pattern designs as well as sculptural pieces for my clients. I also use some of the latest techniques such as a non-toxic resin for my paintings and sculptures. I was formally trained at Syracuse University and have lived in the DC Metro Area for nearly twenty years. This spring, I am proudly back at Syracuse University pursuing a post graduate degree in Communications.
