“Magic Fluids”

Featured Video Play Icon

In his short film, “Magic Fluids,” Roman De Giuli uses cyan, magenta, and yellow paints to generate a rainbow of macro colors. All the fluid motion you see is a practical effect, painstakingly created by layering paints and flow mediums of different densities. Like in Siqueiros’ “accidental painting” technique, the less dense paints will eventually rise through the upper layers and spread. De Giuli uses the effect for its motion, but the same physics is key for many artists who use acrylic pouring to paint. (Video and image credit: R. De Giuli)
