Tell us about yourself!
Absolutely! I used the paint from my living room and the paint from my dining room to tie the two rooms together. As long as you buy latex paint you're good to go. If you happen to be in a hardware store check out their "Oops" paint section. I bought a beautiful red for .50 cents. Some of us buy white house paint to use as a base white. Any time I'm in a big box store to buy some Floetrol I check out what's there. You can get some great buys which helps save a few bucks on a hobby that can be expensive. Have fun with it!
The reason you cover the canvas with white paint is to help the pour flow across the canvas. Don't wait for the white to dry! It needs to be wet to work it's magic. It doesn't mix with the paint you pour on it and the only way you'll see white is if you miss a spot when tilting the canvas. It's so much fun and soooo addictive! Have fun and thank you for the tutorial.
It's so much fun but it took me months to be good at it and I'm still learning. You don't have to use white as your base. You could use the prominent color you plan to use in your pour. If white is showing you may need to use more paint or change the consistency of the paint. Some people don't use a base coat but that causes the paint to roll over itself and you might lose colors you'd prefer to keep. I really love the colors you chose, your composition and your painting. Just have fun with it! :)
