The following supply list contains affiliate links. I make a small commission if you purchase through these links, and I really appreciate it if you do!

- Husky Plastic Sheeting : http://www.kbecca.com/amz-husky-plast... (or a large garbage bag / old newspapers / a bunch of plastic grocery bags / a painter's dropcloth)

- Foil Cookie Tray (to catch most of the excess paint as it runs off the edges of the painting - I purchased a set of 2 for $1.00 at the dollar store)

- Vinyl Gloves (if you don't want to be cleaning acrylic paint from under your fingernails for days, then use gloves - I buy mine by the box at Walmart in the cleaning supplies aisle)

- Acrylic Craft Paints (in the video, I used Folk Art & Americana brands, but I've also used Martha Stewart, Apple Barrell, and Michael's Craftsmart store brands with good results)

- Elmer's Glue All + Water : http://www.kbecca.com/amz-elmers-glueall

- Squeeze Bottle : http://www.kbecca.com/amazon-squeeze-... (I put the glue and water into this and shake it up until they're well mixed. The squeeze bottles are a really easy way to dispense your pouring medium, and you can just put the cap back on when you're not using so it doesn't dry out)

- Food Service Portion Cups : http://www.kbecca.com/amz-food-servic... (to hold the paint / pouring medium mixture - you can use any small plastic cups for this, or you can save yogurt containers or even plastic cat food containers and use those)

- Wood Craft Sticks : http://www.kbecca.com/amz-wood-craft-... (to stir the paint / pouring medium mixture - I picked up a package of 100 for $1.00 at the dollar store, and once the paint is completely dry on them, you can reuse them)

- Art Alternatives 8x10 Canvas Panels : http://www.kbecca.com/amz-art-alterna... (if you want to hang your paintings on the wall, you should use a regular canvas, but I like these panels and buy them by the dozen from Amazon)

- Plastic Shot Glasses (to raise the canvas off of the work surface so the paint can flow off the edges after you pour - I bought a package of 24 plastic shot glasses for $1.00 at the dollar store, but you can use food service containers, plastic yogurt containers, cat food containers, or even a small box under the canvas)

    Jo Threatt 9 months ago I have been watching acrylic pouring for over 4 months now. At least one every day from different artist. I've never painted in my life except maybe 3rd grade and thats it. I'm 61 now. I want to tell you how much I appreciate the exact detail as to what to buy, how it works, what it's for, the order of use, and where to buy the products. Yours is the best video I've seen that explains everything. Thanks sooo much and have a sunshiny day !! 😎😎😎
