I can honestly say this course has made my year and changed my life – it is the one positive to come out of 2020. Everything I have learnt about acrylic pouring started with these videos and the knowledge I have taken away with me, will be forever. I cannot express enough, how happy I am that I completed this course and would not hesitate to do any of your courses again in the future. You really have been the best teacher/mentor.
Are You Ready to:
LEARN the SECRETS of consistently SUCCESSFUL paint pouring from a SKILLED PROFESSIONAL, committed to helping you become the BEST fluid artist you can POSSIBLY be, who will take you from BEGINNER to intermediate FAST with MINIMAL fails, without the CONFUSION and OVERWHELM that results from disappearing down the RABBIT-HOLE of binge-watching YouTube tutorials and WITHOUT spending a small fortune on supplies and materials which don't work or bring you less than STELLAR RESULTS? All while getting you a TON of Facebook Groupie LURRVE!
WHY CHOOSE FAM v2.0...?
The NEW & IMPROVED FAM2.0 has been a YEAR in the making! The original FAM launched to 30 beta testers in May 2020. It received RAVE REVIEWS and many of the students BEFORE & AFTER pics can be viewed on this page. To my knowledge no other paint pouring course offers the opportunity tor customers to see, first hand, the results of prior students in this way.
Version 2.0 has been UPDATED and EXTENDED based on the original students feedback - making this the largest and most comprehensive paint pouring course in the world for both BEGINNERS and IMPROVERS!
You will benefit not only from my 6 years as an AWARD WINNING fluid artist and QUALIFIED EDUCATOR but also from the experience of 2 other HIGHLY KNOWLEDGEABLE and veteran pourers - CHRIS SCHNEIDER and JULIE VATCHER
FAM v2.0 contains a whopping 69 VIDEO TUTORIALS (comprising 22 hours of quality training) which have taken nearly a year to film and edit, along with LOTS of supporting materials including an Ebook detailing the SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT you will need (and where to buy them), a PERSONAL PLANNER and how to PHOTOGRAPH your finished work for social media and/or to help you SELL your pieces.
Although FAM v2.0 is designed as a STAND-ALONE course you will have access to a DEDICATED Facebook Support Group with extremely experienced pourers acting as Admins, as well as previous studients, who are on-hand to help you on your journey
All the tutorials have been filmed in HIGH DEFINITION in WIDESCREEN FORMAT with professional recording equipment which are then edited. Each video contains LINKS to the supplies and equipment used and TIMESTAMPS so you can easily jump to different sections!
If you're thinking of doing a different course ASK the trainer for some of their students' BEFORE & AFTER pics because the PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING!😉👌
My experience of FAM:
I wanted to accelerate my development.
I wanted to have interaction and feedback, which you can’t get from watching YouTube videos!
I wanted to save money in the medium term by doing pours so not wasting canvases and paint!
I wanted to have support and encouragement, so I didn’t give up when I got frustrated!
And I wanted to find a fun, honest team so that it felt like a sociable hobby as I’m shielding.
All my expectations have been met and exceeded by being part of Monique’s FAM.

Where do I start?! At the beginning is always best… or not! In the beginning, there were storms stirred in plastic cups to create the perfect consistencies, waterfalls of acrylics splashed onto canvases in the vain hope that a masterpiece would emerge. The result was a catastrophic cacophony of cr@ap... What was I to do? Lo! To the east (I live in the west), a star glimmered on the horizon ‘twas Monique Oliver Fluid Art Masterclass. Here I am today producing such quality artwork that even my daughter puts it on her walls.
Eehhhmmmmm. I love famalamers, we are having so much fun. Monique provides such clear and detailed instructions, it’s hard to go wrong. But!!! You do and even she will say not all techniques are for you! You will get the chance to throw a tiara or two or… (buy a couple). Ms O is human and understands we have up days and down days. One day it will work and the next it won’t! I will recommend this course and Ms O to anyone, any day! Constructive criticism is what it’s about! Support from the FAM is what you get!

As someone who is not an artist of any sort, I am so glad to have joined FAM. I have learned so much about paints from Monique and how to use them to their best. I am only 6 weeks into the course, and I feel that my paintings have improved. Brilliant tutoring and honest feedback is so appreciated and I hope to learn much more in the weeks to come. The community is so welcoming and a lot of fun to be part of a community who are lovely people and so helpful.

Do You Think You're Coming Down with Something..?
Ninja swipes, Dutch pours, Flip Cups, String pulls, Balloon kisses, Hammer smashes, Ring pours, Bloom technique, Swipes, Reverse Dips and Ribbon pours...the list is EXHAUSTING!
You're not sure what half of them are and are having to consult the oracles of Google or Youtube the moment you close down the Facebook groups for the night - and these are just the techniques...
You then have to contend with - PVA, Pouring Mediums, Floetrol (IS it the same as Owatrol), Flow Aid, Retarder, Latex Extenders, Paint Conditioners, Bindex, GAC 800, String Gel, Silicone Oil, Dimethicone and maybe even KY Jelly?!
And what about the ACTUAL paints - Opaque, Transparents, Semi-transparent, Fluorescent, Metallics, Pearlescent, Colorshift, Iridescents, Chameleon, Mica's, Acrylic Inks, Enamels and possibly bog standard household emulsion?
But did you forget the BRANDS - Golden, Liquitex, Amsterdam, Arteza, DecoArt, X2, Windsor & Newton, Daler Rowney, Royal & Langnickel, Neo Acryl, Pebeo, Matisse and Jo Sonja...
Now I'm no doctor but frankly I suspect a severe case of PMT - Paint and Medium Trauma - symptoms include but are not limited to:
Hand- trembling as you prepare to click BUY NOW for a product you're not 100% sure will work?
Mild panic attacks whenever you see a LOW STOCK alert on your favourite items
A pre-disposition to LURK in numerous Facebook pouring groups
Racing to the door whenever you hear a parcel drop so the rest of the household isn't witness to EXACTLY how much your habit is costing
A slow - but steadily building resentment that a lot of Youtubers are getting spectacular results with products NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE in the UK or EU, which can only be imported at eye-watering expense and that might involve you selling your granny?
Hiding 3/4 full containers of various paints and mediums at the back of shelves, because you don't use them and you can't stand them staring at you accusingly anymore
NEVER chucking those 3/4 full containers of various paints and mediums hidden at the back of shelves, even when they're well past their sell-by date because you MIGHT need them and because YOU know what they cost
Eyeing up the present lay-out of every room in the house to see if you can make any more space to dry stuff
Binge-watching Youtube at all hours of the day and night
Feeling slightly nauseous whenever you have to check your bank balance
Sleepless nights spent obsessing over where your latest pour went "wrong"
Passing off junk "ready meals" as "healthy nutritional food" because you really NEED to have back at it ASAP
Isn't it TIME you Consulted a SPECIALIST..?
If you're a complete beginner or someone who's had less than a year of regular pouring experience, disappearing down the rabbit-hole of YouTube will leave you FRUSTRATED, CONFUSED, OVERWHELMED and OUT-OF-POCKET very quickly! You'll start off believing that pouring is a walk in the park, realise FAST that even the basics are not as easy as they look, BUY a ton of products you don't really need and end up DISAPPOINTED at your own slow progress.
You'll go back to Youtube again & again & again - because you truly believe that if you JUST had "such & such a product" or the right combination of products that "so & so" is raving about - EVERYTHING will fall into place.
We're ALL spending a TON on paints, mediums and materials. I held 2 polls in my FREE TO JOIN Facebook group recently. The most popular category for an average spend on pouring products per month was between £30-£70 (the 2nd largest - by a narrow margin) was a whopping £100+ ....EVERY MONTH!
In the 2nd poll - I asked "how many products remained unopened or hardly used after 6 months". Most respondents said they had between 20-30 UNOPENED products with the next largest group at the 50+ mark. The reason most given for this phenomenon is that in a Youtube frenzy, people are hitting the BUY NOW button and by the time the products arrive they've forgotten how to use them and are already onto the next thing...and the cycle continues...
However, these large spends and unused products are NO SURPRISE because...
Having watched an almost brain-numbing amount of YouTube videos on the subject of fluid art/acrylic pouring, I was thrilled to come across Monique’s amazing FAM – Fluid Art Masterclass. It’s affordable and so jam packed full of information, it’s quite unbelievable, really. I along with all the other growing amount of members I know wait in eager anticipation of her updates, tutorials, and other learning tools. Her straightforward, no nonsense approach is really refreshing. It’s building up to be an incredible community of like-minded “pourers” and is a real credit to her talents and abilities. To be wholeheartedly recommended.

YouTube is NOT a source of FREE training videos...but a GREAT source of PRODUCT INFOMMERCIALS...
Some of us - myself included - are probably old enough to remember these. Lengthy TV adverts expounding the virtues of various products & their uses - some of which would go on for 10-15 minutes.
Is this sounding FAMILIAR at all? If not, it SHOULD because while we see very few of these style ads on TV anymore it isn't because they no longer exist - it's because these days they're called YOUTUBE VIDEOS and we're LAPPING THEM UP!
Most people who venture into the minefield of Youtube territory are under the mistaken impression that the video creators are generously providing their knowledge for free...whereas in reality, the vast majority of them are not. These videos are not created with the main intention of helping you become a better pourer - but rather with the intention of SELLING MORE OF THE PRODUCT USED IN THE VIDEO .
Popular Youtubers can "monetise" their channels and videos in a number of different ways:
Receiving FREE products from well-known brands in exchange for a positive review
Receiving MONEY from brands in exchange for a "how-to" educational style video which is actually designed to showcase a particular product
Being "sponsored" by a particular brand to keep a product "front and centre" in a lot of the creators content
Commissions from product sales via affiliate links - promoted during the video
Commissions from advertisers who show ads before and during the video
Directly asking for contributions/donations from viewers and subscribers
Now don't get me wrong - I'm not knocking this - it's an alternative and often lucrative business model (some of my own e-books contain affiliate links) and NOT all Youtubers do this. However, in a category like paint pouring, whose popularity has exploded in the last few years, there are a large proportion of Youtubers who use their channels to primarily generate revenue from affiliate sales and advertising .
We all have to make a living but YOU need to be aware of what you're really watching because more often than not it isn't an unbiased video that someone has uploaded to Youtube out of the goodness of their heart...
Adding to our woes is the fact that all the American/Canadian/Australian pourers are NOT using the same products available to us in the UK and EU. As an example - when they say they've used "FLOETROL" in their pour - this is NOT THE SAME PRODUCT AS THE FLOETROL BRAND we can buy in the UK and EU - the ingredients are totally different - I know because I spent months researching this as part of a major product for a GLOBAL brand! Is it any wonder that we often can't achieve their results despite following their instructions to the letter!
Given all of this information do you still REALLY believe you will get IMPARTIAL UNBIASED and completely SOUND advice from a Youtube "tutorial" especially if you're a UK or EU pourer? So...what's the ANSWER...
The FLUID ART MASTERCLASS Remedy...
After almost a year of following various artists on YouTube, spending a lot of money on a lot of different products in the process, I still found myself pouring paint onto a canvas whilst pinching one eye shut and hoping for the best!
I feel transformed and inspired having done Monique’s Fluid Acrylic Masterclass. Not only have I learned that not all black paints were created equal, we also narrowed down on products that created real results whilst experimenting with a variety of techniques.
With great communication throughout the course, Monique has an amazing skill to draw one in, knowledge to inspire, and she knows how to lead one away from overthinking. With her expert guidance, I was able to push my own boundaries and see my work improve by 100%.
Being part of a family on Facebook with fellow course members and learning from each other’s work was a huge added bonus.
Monique’s Fluid Art Masterclass is thoroughly enjoyable, professional and well-structured, with tons of support, and it was great fun co-creating with others!

Look, while I'm NOT providing a free program - YOU are paying me directly. In effect I am working for YOU!
My SOLE MISSION is to help you become the BEST POURER YOU CAN POSSIBLY BE in THE FASTEST POSSIBLE TIME..because if YOU have a great time LEARNING, feel SUPPORTED and get fantastic VALUE FOR MONEY and TELL OTHERS then FAM gets more members...and everyone wins!
The FAM tutorials were filmed as a DIRECT RESPONSE to students needs and V.2.0 was designed following DETAILED FEEDBACK from my original "FAMers". During the original program, there was sometimes TEARS, TEMPER TANTRUMS and TIARA THROWING (and that was just me!) ...BUT I wanted a FUN, yet comprehensive course, suitable for both absolute beginners and improvers which addressed the most frequently occurring issues. I UNDERSTAND the frustrations when you want to improve as quickly as possible, without spending a fortune on paint and materials and dealing with supplies which don't seem to work as you want them to. My students understand that I expect them to pick themselves up and TRY again when things don't always go as planned...because that's my job! I genuinely CARE about your progress and this course was designed with YOU in mind...
So EXPECT ME to tell you the TRUTH..
No amount of paint, products or mediums can save you if you haven't got your techniques NAILED...it's that simple.
The people in your regular Facebook groups WON'T tell you what you need to do so you can see improvement in your pours...FAST
I have NO HIDDEN AGENDA - it's in my BEST INTEREST to ensure you have FUN whilst LEARNING AS MUCH AS YOU CAN so you can EXPERIENCE CONSISTENT SUCCESS - because YOUR success is MY success
You don't need to spend a fortune on a truck-load of expensive products when you first get started IF you know EXACTLY:
WHAT each product IS
HOW it WORKS
WHERE and HOW to use it for the best results
HOW it reacts with other paints & mediums
WHAT issues (if any) you can expect
The best ways to COMBINE it with other products to produce SPECTACULAR results
WHEN another product would serve you BETTER!
WHICH products to AVOID
Honestly...how much TIME and MONEY have you already spent trying to get good at this - when I can show you there IS a better way! Isn't it time you INVESTED in YOURSELF?
Enjoying Monique’s insightful Fluid Art Masterclass. Helpful personal feedback, plentiful video tutorials, and a friendly FAM Facebook community to share processes, tips, and tricks.
- Sarah Levin via Facebook
So what's the INVESTMENT?
Having already wasted money on expensive courses that promised much and delivered little, I was so happy when I found Monique’s Fluid Art Masterclass. Not only is it very affordable, I learnt so much in the first week that I can’t wait to get stuck into the rest of the course. Monique is an excellent tutor and very approachable and has already saved me both time and money.
- Cherie Gordon via Facebook
Like most things in life - there's an EASY way or a hard way.
It's taken me 6 years of trials, experiments, wasted products, frustration and overcoming challenges to know as much about paint pouring as I do...and for the first 3 years of my adventure I poured at least once EVERY SINGLE DAY...7 days a week. That's nearly 1100 pours!
How LONG would it take you to do that - particularly when you factor in the time searching for information
HOW MUCH MONEY would you spend to do it?
You could go down the same route I did and it will cost you a LOAD of time and a TON of MONEY. You will get frustrated with yourself when the products you're using don't give you the results you want and you'll sift through TRUCK-LOADS of often INCORRECT information to get answers to your questions.
Honestly, WHY would you that when I'm offering you a way to:
get reliable, UNBIASED and ACCURATE information, without wading through a PILE of FACEBOOK COMMENTS or spending HOURS on research
FAST-TRACK a path to CONSISTENTLY GOOD POURS
DRASTICALLY REDUCE your monthly spend on products which don't GIVE YOU THE RESULTS YOU WANT
Entice those other Facebook group members to STOP SCROLLING & START COMMENTING
Gain ANSWERS to your burning pouring questions QUICKLY & EASILY
kick the collection of WASTED PRODUCTS into touch once and for all!

I felt like you, watched endless YouTube videos, bought Mixed Media Girls book, although I improved a bit, I wasn’t where I wanted to be. So I signed up for Monique Oliver’s online course and in a month, I’ve gone from the first picture to the second. Can’t wait for the next technique.
- Sue Farmer via Facebook
Fluid acrylics is an exciting, rewarding, art form, but although it looks easy getting beautiful results, it’s not. It can take months of experimenting to get the mix right and pull all the skills required together. A good, experienced tutor can help you bypass the long, frustrating, expensive path to success. I recommend Monique’s online course as a brilliant shortcut to the fabulous pictures you are capable of.
- Sue Farmer via Facebook
The FAM is an amazing learning platform. The first month I actually perfected the swipe technique, it is something that I was not comfortable with as I though “I can’t do it” and shied away from it, but with the help, encouragement, and feedback from Monique and all the rest of the FAM, I managed it. Yay!
The content of the FAM videos, feedback, and help from Monique is way beyond my expectations. It is a fantastic course and if anyone is looking to do a course in pouring, then I cannot recommend this one enough. Monique goes above and beyond to help and encourage you, point you in the right direction so that you do succeed. Thanks, Monique.

Still not quite Ready to make the LEAP?
Got this far and still not sure? Then why not join my FREE Facebook Pouring Group (with over 600 members...and counting!) where you can get some help and support from other members? We're a very friendly bunch so come on it!
I’ve been absolutely loving Monique’s FAM!!! Pretty sure I got my money’s worth in the first half hour of joining! There is so much content and Monique is a fantastic teacher, both professional and friendly. I am new to fluid art and it has been invaluable having her guidance. It’s probably saved me a small fortune in paint, as I’m sure it would have taken me years of experiments to master what I’ve mastered in just a few weeks on FAM. Thank you so much Monique Oliver!
