Flow Painted Chargers

DecoArt has a new Pouring Medium that is super easy to use. Just mix in the paint and start flow painting!  I used a 1 : 1 ratio of the pouring medium with Americana Acrylic paint and it worked perfectly.  These chargers are a great way to add some color to a dinner table and show off your mad flow painting skills!  Using clear glass dishes will allow everyone to admire your talent.  Remember to use all of the colors in the box and always Make Your Mark!
Toss on a glass plate and you're good to go!
Love all the colors!
 Dinner is almost served!

Watch how easy they are to make here!

5. & 6.  Tilt the charger until you're happy with the design and the entire surface is covered in paint

  3. I only recently discovered your blog, and I’m really enjoying everything. This project is particularly appealing because, as a food blogger, I set a lot of different tables. Can you tell me if the chargers are metal or plastic. Also I’m assuming they’re 12 inches, am I right? Is the glass plate then 10 inches?

    1. The chargers were plastic and 12". The plates are glass and 10"

  4. i'm having a hard time finding the decoart pouring medium. can other pouring mediums be used? or even elmer's glue? do you seal these with a mod podge? i'm thinking the dishwasher mod podge would work well. that way, they could be washed.

  5. these are beautful !! so colorful. i LOVE them.
    where can i buy the pouring agent? i can't find it at the usual craft stores.
    can i use something else like glue and a little water?

    1. You should be able to get the Pouring Medium at Michael's very soon. I think it's carried at other major craft stores, too. Also, you can go to to order it.
