Acrylic Fluid Art: String- and Chain Pull (Video)

2년 전

Hello, I'm Caroline, an American expat living in Germany. Recently I discovered two new things: acrylic fluid pouring and Steemit. Since both go together like a horse and carriage, I found myself a new hobby!

Please follow me on this platform, as I explore the exciting possibilities of acrylics and post videos of my learning experience on the STEEM. I'm convinced, anybody can enjoy creating art and improve over time by learning from their mistakes. If I can do this, you can!

My plan is, to create a new painting every so often, show what I did in a video, and write down the particulars of colors, mixes, techniques, cost, etc. in the accompanying text.

My hope is, you will fall madly in love with my art, upvote the living daylights out of my posts, and buy the occasional painting off me, so I can buy more paint and become the Energizer bunny of acrylics!

So, thanks for having me, and... Here goes nothing:

Watch this video on

Please note, there will be no bumps, lumps, and odd reflexes on the painting once everything dries properly. The bumpy appearance is due to the uneven onset of the paint drying.


Now, I'm off to find myself a decent banner and avatar for this blog and learn more about how to work this STEEM thingy...

Welcome to Steemit Caroline! It must be a huge difference to leave in Germany when you come from the US. I have moved from Slovakia to Switzerland many years ago and I still feel the difference :)

I'm looking forward to seeing your art and I'm sure I will enjoy it :) Steemit is a great place for artists as there are many people following art here (including me :))

I wish you a lot of fun and friends! Avatar and a banner is a good idea but you could maybe think about joining some discord communities or art contests to build some relationships..

If you need any help, please let me know. I'll be happy to share my knowledge :)

Have a lovely day!


Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm still looking around and reading up on stuff. Discord is on the list.

Hi and welcome here! When I started on steemit, my biggest problem was to find interesting people to interact with. So, to help newcomers getting started I created a directory with other interesting and or talented steemians to follow or interact with. Feel free to check it out at I am sure it will help you find like-minded people. Enjoy your stay here and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!


Thanks, I'll have a look at it.

Welcome to Steem! I'd not seen this method of painting before and after watching your video I'm eager to have some time (and working space) to give it a go! There's a strong art community on this platform who post under the #art, #artzone, #painting, & etc. tags and many of people such as myself who are happy to admire your works! 😁 I hope that you have a terrific day.

We encourage everyone to explore the various posts and to leave meaningful comments on those that you wish (for example something that you enjoyed about the content or perhaps sharing a similar experience you've had). This platform thrives through interaction as it's the best way to build relationships with other Steemians while finding communities and initiatives that peak your interests.

Welcome to Steemit caro-art. The official FAQ can be found here and has A LOT of information - Also remember, Steemit is just ONE of the sites built that uses Steem the blockchain. You should also check out DTube and DSound for starters and if you're a gamer, Steem Monsters! There are many other cool apps but I can't list them all here, there's just too many! But I'd also like to mention Steempeak, it's a better blogging platform that has a lot of cool features. Welcome to the blockchain! :) Oh, and if you're interested in creating your own tokens or smart contracts, check Steem engine!

Welcome to Steemit, I will be following you and upvote you whenever I'm online and you post!
