Ever felt the urge to unleash your creativity through acrylic pouring only to be deterred by the cost of supplies? Fear no more! Here’s how you can create stunning art without breaking the bank.

This blog post will guide you through a list of affordable supplies that I’ve personally used and found to be effective. Spoiler alert: You’ll be surprised how many of these items are already lying around your house!

Tub of Glue

The first item on our list is a tub of glue. This isn’t just for sticking things together; it can be a game-changer in your acrylic pouring adventure. Mix it with water and acrylic paint, and you have yourself a homemade pouring medium. The glue helps increase the flow and reduces the chance of crazing or cracking in your final piece. Plus, it’s way cheaper than the commercial pouring mediums out there.


Floetrol, same as the glue, helps to enhance the flow of the paint, making it easier to work with. You can give it a try and compare it with glue. Additionally, Floetrol provides a nice glossy finish.

Espresso cups, Wooden Stirrer

Who said you need fancy pouring cups and stirrers? Espresso cups and wooden stirrers are just as effective. The small size of the espresso cups makes them perfect for mixing different colors, and the wooden stirrer ensures a smooth, lump-free mix.

Tissue paper or newspaper

Using tissue paper , wet wipes or newspaper is an inexpensive way to protect your workspace and makes the cleaning process a breeze. You can also use it when you to do the swiping technique.

Acrylic pouring doesn’t have to be an expensive hobby. With these low-cost supplies, you can create beautiful, glossy pieces of art that are sure to impress. So, grab that tub of glue, acrylics, and espresso cups, and get pouring! And remember, the beauty of art lies in the process, not the price tag. So, roll up your sleeves and start creating your masterpiece today!
