Imelda Perez Papai, a budding pour painting artist in Vienna conducted a successful pour workshop seminar attended by more than 30 participants. The workshop was held on August 24, 2019 at the grounds of the the Parish of Leopoldau in Vienna’s 21st District.
At the beginning of the workshop, Imelda contended that pour painting has different techniques.
„Acrylic pouring is a painting technique where acrylic paint is mixed with some type of pouring medium and then poured onto a surface in a variety ways. Sometimes colors are poured directly from individual cups, and other times multiple colors are combined into one cup and poured together. After that, the surface is tilted in each direction to let the paint flow and the colors interact in unpredictable, yet always interesting ways,“ Imelda explained.
The artist further elaborated that the techniques are diverse and open up to each artist an infinite range of interesting color schemes, color gradients, cell formations and varied design variants which often produce unpredictable creations.
“All colors have to be thinned so that they can flow more easily over the canvas. To get the desired fluidity of the paint, dilute the colors with a pouring medium and possibly very little of water. The pouring medium binds the color pigments together and improves the flow properties without destroying the color structure,” Imelda said.
“In order to produce so-called large cells or color cells on the canvas, it is best to additionally use high-quality silicone in addition to the acrylic paint and the pouring medium so that the colors separate better and different surface effects are created. In addition, also can also be used a flambé burner,” Imelda further explained
The participants are very glad to have attended the workshop.
„This was good and basic. I am drawn to these pour paintings as they create awesome color effects,“ one participant commented.
„The workshop is very interesting. I appreciate the effort of Imelda. Thank you for this wonderful workshop,“ Thess Waitzbauer said.
„It is a brilliant workshop especially for people who do not really have ideas what to paint but rather like to work with colors and abstract ideas. Imelda has a done a fantastic job,“ Ruby, an Indian resident in Vienna said.
Gabi Simic, an Austrian artist also attended the workshop.
„I like the workshop because of the different techniques presented. The nice Filipino community is magnificent! You are like a family. It is great. I enjoyed very much,“ Gabi Simic said.
„It was fun. Hope we can do it again,“ Donato Pascual, one of the youngest participant commented.
Imelda expressed her gratitude to the participants of the Workshop.
„I am very glad and thankful that a number of participants who attended the workshop.They go home happily full of colors,“ Imelda said.
Below are the pour techniques that Imelda Perez Papai elaborated during the Pour Painting Workshop.
In the Flip Cup technique, the individual colors are prepared / poured one after the other into a large glass before pouring, are no longer stirred and poured onto the canvas in one action.
In the Balloon technique, the individual colors are prepared / poured one after the other and carefully stirred or pervaded with the wooden stick.
The Puddle-Pour technique is an easy-to-use casting technique. Here, the individual colors are poured one after the other directly onto the canvas. The first color cast on the canvas forms the base into which further colors are poured over each other or into each other.
The wiping or “wipe over the color” takes place at the end of Pourings. Imelda explained that this could be done with a paint knife, a spatula or a thick plastic foil. By wiping over the last layer of color, fluid movements and cells crystallize out better.
In the blow technique, the colors are poured from a large vessel onto an already primed canvas. The mixed colors are then blown to different directions. After that, the colors flow by tilting the canvas back and forth.
The pour painting workshop was organized by the Bikol Society in Austria and Babaylan Austria.
