How to generate cell patterns with fluid acrylic?

To create a cell pattern in fluid acrylic color painting, you can try the following techniques:

    1. Using silicone: Adding a few drops of silicone oil into the fluid acrylic paint can create cells. The silicone will rise to the surface, pushing the paint apart and creating small air bubbles that will eventually pop, leaving behind circular cells. You can experiment with the amount of silicone added to the paint to achieve different sizes and densities of cells.
    2. Using a heat gun or torch: After applying the paint onto the canvas, you can use a heat gun or torch to create cells. The heat will cause the surface tension of the paint to change, creating circular shapes. Be careful not to hold the heat source too close to the surface or for too long, as this can cause the paint to burn or become too fluid.
    3. Using a straw: You can use a straw to blow air onto the surface of the wet paint to create cells. After applying the paint onto the canvas, use the straw to blow air in different directions over the surface to create small circular shapes.
    4. Using a palette knife or skewer: You can use a palette knife or skewer to manipulate the paint and create cells. After applying the paint onto the canvas, use the tool to drag through the surface of the paint in different directions to create circular shapes.

Remember that it may take some practice and experimentation to achieve the desired effect.
