My first paint pour – this could be addicting
Posted May 23, 2018

DecoArt sent me some paint pour medium and sealer and I got so excited, I decided to put an impromptu video together… I just had so much fun. This could be addictive!

It was much easier than I thought and I had a blast experimenting with all kinds of substrates, combinations of paint and dish soap. I hope you enjoy the video and give it a try. Supplies will be listed below.


Supplies Used: DecoArt pouring medium and  top coat sealer, DecoArt media gesso to prime surface, DecoArt media fluid acrylics, Americana acrylic paints,

Plastic cups, stirs sticks or plastic silverware, parchment paper, dish soap, disposable pan or pan just for paint, canvas, wood, tags, vintage papers, chip board, scrapbook paper.

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!

    What fun to see all your experiments! What happened to the very last one that you did with the leftovers? Were you able to peel off a skin or did it stay on that paper and how did it look when dry? thanks for this great video.

      Thank you and the last one took days to dry and then didn’t peel up of the parchment paper… but I will still use it some where!!
