    I’m a contemporary artist based in Canada with my roots going back to Ukraine. I specialize in fluid media and consider myself an unconventional artist - instead of regular brushes, I use water, fire, airflow, and gravity as my tools for achieving the most unique effects in my art.
    The biggest inspiration for my art is Nature with its endless forms of beauty and harmony in every process, every phenomenon, every creature, and every element of the micro and macro world. And with my art, I attempt to explore and manifest this beauty, leaving room for viewers to find a reflection of what moves and inspires them the most.

    On this channel, I provide aspiring artists with tools and knowledge they can use to express their creative gifts and make beautiful art.

You can also mix alcohol ( about 96%/ 4% water) and spray it on the canvas at the end to create cells.

Great job Olga! I'm an illustrator of the late sixties all the way into late eighties when magazine illustration was king and was at its height of popularity unlike what it is now days. We often used liquid soap with acrylic paint to get all different effects, somewhat similar to what you're trying to experiment and accomplish with. So yes, older illustrators know what I'm talking about. Oh by the way, my favorite was the one mixed with alcohol and the one with liquid soap mix, second. The one with silicone mix was too busy the way it was. I'm sure if used with a better design and composition on a larger surface would have made all the big difference.

Thanks, that was great! Now that the comparison is done you can play with each individually. Personally, I'm not a fan of the overabundance of cells that silicone produces. The only time it works for me is when the colors are monochromatic but both dish soap and alcohol have potential. If you know that you plan to use the soap then you leave the paint a bit thicker and that should give a good consistency once the soap is added. If you are using alcohol you want to work quickly so that it doesn't evaporate,...and that should give you more cells...or you could try just spraying the alcohol over the top of the painting once it's stretched out. Just some thoughts...have fun!

Very cool! I would love to see even more tests and so thankful you did this video! Thanks! I do know that silicon has trouble with contamination and can effect the paintings longevity, but as long as you clean the canvas or surface and seal it your artwork should last the longevity of the paint used. Quality paint rated for the longer periods will last longer no matter how it is used!

I have tried many pours using different household items. Hairspray gives a combination of dishsoap and alcohol, coconut milk oil which gave big cells, but took forever to dry and wd40 (without silicone) that was a mistake, but waves and ripples formed..very cool. I usually add a bit of white glue to ensure a thicker pour. There are lots of products to add that give many different effects and once one layer is dry you can pour another on top in the areas that didn't come out so well. You can't really mess up on pours.

@Maria Da Silva First, I mix paint and white glue in plastic cups to a 4:1 ratio (more paint than glue). I use a solo cup and layer paint colors, floetrol more paint and the top with WD 40 with silicone. Sometimes I add the WD40 with silicone in between paint layers, but I have never poured WD 40 silicone next to floetrol. I have always spaced the two agents between layers of paint. I try to pour equal amounts of everything, but sometimes that isn't always the case. I find if you have more of the agents, the cells are muted and if you have more paint then the cells are smaller or don't come out as well. It is trial by error, and sometimes happy mistakes are made. There are pouring videos available to show how to set up the pour. It is easier to see than to describe.

When you use alcohol, you have to pour paint quickly after adding alcohol. If you noticed the cells were in the yellow because it had the least amount of time to evaporate.

@mala3isity I used to breed Siamese and OSH for 20 years and did art work as well. You could put a cooling rack in a plastic tote and put your canvas in it. Then snap on the lid. If you worried about it drying too slow you can drill holes in the sides in the upper third. I wouldn’t put them on top. It may weaken lid.

Interesting comparison! I had an art teacher 25 years ago who used dish soap to dissolve clumps in old acrylic paint in its original container, to make it usable for a longer time. I thought that was a neat idea to save material and money with a simple household trick. Knowing the "dissolving" properties of the dish soap, I am not surprised if the dishsoap paint is overmixing:)

I found this about isopropyl alcohol & paint pouring: "91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol in a spritzer bottle to pop bubbles in the paint. You can spray this into the paint cups before pouring, spritz it onto the canvas after pouring, or both. Alcohol also helps to open up the cells in paintings when you're using silicone oil."

Alcohol micro-mist blows up the bubbles in car paints and varnishes so I wonder if it'd do the same with deliberately shaken colors? Would the bubble break showing the color underneath? Would the cell possibility keep the bubble open instead of flowing back together? So many possibilities.

I LOVE this experiment! I actually liked the Dawn and alcohol ones better...smaller cells for the size of the canvas.

All 3 are great. The dish soap is my favorite because the appearance is more subtle and galaxy-like. So cool! Thank you for sharing your talent. :)

Next time you use the dish soap, pour the colors first and then in a bowl mix water and dish soap to form bubbles and gently place the bubbles where you want the cells. Once the painting dries simply wipe away the bubbles to reveal the cells. It works awesome when doing fingernails this way. Hope that helps.

Well, it's been 2 years now since you did this cell experiment. I hope you've finished reading your comments by now. I've been binge watching this technique for weeks now and I'm getting ready to leap out of the nest and see if I can fly. I've used oils, acrylics, and water colors since I was 25 and I've never heard or seen the acrylic pour technique until recently...and I'm retired now. It's never too late to try something new. One thing I like are all the comments. You can learn quite a bit from those who have already experimented. It was nice of you to commend all of those who discovered a new way of creating cells or shared some new information. But then, you seem like a very nice person; always smiling. Keep painting, sharing, and good luck. There's a few of yours that I'm really excited to try. Quite a few.

Hi Olga, I always use alcohol to dampen my swipe paper towel! It happened by accident late one night and I loved the results. Thank you for this video! I am going to try one drop of dish soap.

Back in the 80s I was using Floetrol as an oil paint extender to do a variety of furniture painting techniques. I learned it from Debbie Travis but who knows where she got it from lol. Thanks so much for doing this experiment! 😊🇨🇦

I've been adding dish soap and water to my latex indoor house paints for years. It extends the amount of paint you have and helps eliminate brush strokes.

I'm really surprised to find I like the one with dish soap the most! I've never used silicone or alcohol but I've always loved the cells silicone creates. but in this scenario, with this colour scheme I think the big cells make it quite busy. plus, the colours mixed so beautifully in the one with the soap!

I would try using just a single colour to see how that particular colour reacts to soapy water or alcohol, the middle painting looked like only the yellow reacted to the soapy water, maybe it has something to do with the chemical make-up of a particular colour. There is a theory that mice like to eat red wires because it tastes better so maybe the same applies to individual colours.

New sub here! I have been watching your videos for a couple of days and I love them! I have never ever done this, but I think I may just grab some little supplies and see if it’s for me! It looks fun and interesting! I’m more of a wordsmith, but am looking for something to do with my hands that don’t require steadiness and precision dexterity (like glass cutting😆). Thanks for the videos...off to look at more!

You have to try wood conditioner in your paints, (two drops in each color along with one drop of silicon oil). I use Min Wax Wood Conditioner. The cells are phenomenal using the wood conditioner. 💕❤️💕

Even if I don't always like cells, you can still have a good painting with good structure but the soap one just looks muddy. The silicone I don't tend to use myself because I don't like all the cells but I do like natural cells from the weight of the paints and using floetral and water. Alcohol never seemed to make a difference when I used it compared to just flow troll and water

Hello Olga I just got done watching your video and I have used both alcohol and silicone. Sometime I've used them together. I get all styles of cells. I really enjoy watching you and all the different ways of pouring.
