What a mess!
I took a stab at drip painting last night. Or perhaps, in my case, "squirt and dribble painting" would be a better way of describing it. I had an brilliant idea and visions of nicely dripped figures, but as you can see, things didn't go exactly as planned.
The "brilliant" idea was to thin some acrylic paint with liquid enamel, put it in a plastic bag, and squirt it out like frosting. Thinking it over, this technique might work great on a large canvas (I will have to try it and report back), but on the small surfaces I was using, it was all just rather silly. And messy.
Sometimes the paint went where I intended, at other times it shot out unexpectedly in the opposite direction. My kitchen resembled the scene of a horrible accident, but I did have a fun time and that was really the point afterall.
After the red paint, I added drops of India ink with an eyedropper. More mess, more fun.
I have some other projects in the works... more on them later!
