That is freaking amazing.

Thank you, Tammy, I’m so glad I discovered this style.

Karla, these are so wonderful! You really have captured the ocean beautifully! Loved the video (Hi Beth!). Can you list the products and proportions you use to make your paint pours? Can't wait to try this technique.

ps congrats on the grand-graduates.

Karla Nathan

Sorry, Marilee, I purposefully left out the products thinking that anyone who tried this wouldn’t be a pour pant beginner. If I were you, I’d watch some “dirty flip cup” videos, and start with basics before trying an ocean scene. There is a bit of a learning curve for getting a feel of how the paint moves. And the flip cups are so much fun too! You will love every minute of it. I plan on doing another video, but was hoping to learn how to edit first, ha, you can tell I had no idea how to do that part.

these are so beautiful! I was sharing your pics with my family while we were on vacation in Hawaii. We are all amazed!
Are you planning to sell any?

Karla Nathan

Thank you, Erica! And one of them is from Hawaiian memories. Yes, I hope to get some listed soon.

I am a lurker and I just had to come comment and tell you that that’s the most awesome thing I have ever seen. Thanks for the tutorial.

Just like me to want to jump into difficult before even trying easy! I'll check out other videos and hope I find one where I can stand to listen to the person, lol. You may not have mastered editing, but even without it you're a good teacher and it comes across.
Thanks, Marilee

Karla Nathan

Thank you, Bella!

I really love teaching, Marilee, that is so nice to hear. The best way to learn this is to watch a few videos, and then trying it out and playing with the paint. Mostly it is by feel.
