Acrylic pouring is a therapeutic, calming activity that allows people to lose themselves in the process of creation.

Acrylics are poured from one container into another, creating beautiful swirls and patterns that can remind you of your childhood or help you let go of grief.

Creating art by pouring acrylic is relaxing.

Pouring acrylics is also a great way to get in touch with your inner child.

It helps bring out your creativity and imagination while also allowing you to focus on something else besides what’s going on around you.

When you’re working with paints and getting creative, it’s tough to pay attention to things like stress or anxiety.

When you are acrylic pouring, all you have to worry about is the process of creating.

No wonder it’s such a great hobby.

As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to be the one painting to enjoy its calming effect.

You can simply watch someone pouring acrylic and you can still very much get lost in the process.

This is the case when a Youtube account under the name Dirty Artist – Acrylic Pouring posted a video of a relaxing acrylic pouring on wood.

It has a whopping 16M views.

People have enjoyed watching the artist behind the video create such beautiful art.

“Lots of awesome drip details and colour blend effects around the edges. The tilting process on this canvas was a hard, long decision! There was a lot of paint on there but I didn’t want to cover the whole canvas in colour,” the artist captioned. “I loved every side and didn’t want to tip any of it off!”

And the result is just astounding.

A beautiful process

The whole process was just as beautiful as the art that was created.

There were various elements to love in this video and the only way to understand it is to watch and experience it yourself.

“The wood mandala will be embellished and the border redone once it has dried for a couple of weeks,” the artist shared. “So you can say it’s half finished.”

A lot of people were mesmerized by the 8-minute video and they made sure to leave the artist some love.

“I love art. I don’t know why people say it’s a waste of paint. I say if you want to create something new, you have to destroy the old and use everything you need. This is just fascinating how the artist created 2 art at once. I really appreciate it,” one commenter wrote.

Another one posted, “I never imagined this would be so beautiful.”

If you want to see how everything turned out, you should definitely see it for yourself.

See how this paint pour experiment turned out in the video below!
