Very! (smile) But it is so much fun and the results are amazing to kids of all ages.
You can prepare for the mess as we mentioned, but you have a little less control over the artwork results.
You see, even though you know what the supplies “CAN” do in art, you don’t always know what the final piece will look like because the process is reactions that create a unique result each time.
You cannot really duplicate a painting exactly using acrylic pouring.
Acrylic pouring is a great reminder to us that life has messy moments.
You can know the pieces in your life, but you don’t always have control over the events. Sometimes we don’t even have great control over our reactions in the moments we experience.
But God knows! He is in control and has the final painting for your life. Let’s face it, we find ourselves in some messy situations and life tilts, smashes, mixes and runs out of control. Sometimes we react in heated moments in ways that aren’t so pretty as the paint cells in acrylic pouring.
Trust Him in the process and the mess you experience in life could be the message He wants your life to be for Him.
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to:
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Trust the LORD with your all. Don’t lean or depend on your own understanding or how you think something should be. Maybe that can also mean trying to control everything too. In everything you do acknowledge Him…. give Him the praise, glory and honor. While you’re at it, give Him your mess too!
He will make your way known!
