How to do blow painting

This process works the best when using paints that have been thinned down a bit with a pouring agent, like floetrol. It helps them level out when you are done moving the paint. It also helps your paints last a bit longer. Using a large flat rock helps the paint sit on top. If you don’t have any flat stones perhaps trying this airburst technique instead.
