Prepare your colour for smooth, wet-look, craze-free pours by lowering viscosity and increasing flexibility.
What it does:
- Gives even poured puddles and acrylic skins.
- Results in a smooth surface, with no crazing, cracking or bubbles.
- Dries to a high gloss, wet-look finish.
- Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow.
- Extends your colour further without affecting acrylic stability.
- Maintains colour opacity.
- Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality.
How to use it:
- Fully intermixable with all liquitex products.
- For best pours, start with with a tablespoon of soft body colour to a cup of pouring medium (around 5% colour to 95% medium) and adapt to suit your technique.
- To use with acrylic ink or heavy body acrylic, adjust ratio to get your desired consistency.
- Stir gently to avoid creating foam - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear.
- Use as a regular fluid medium extender - mix as much as you like into acrylic colour to create the volume and viscosity you want.
- Crazing and cracking can occur when the flow heights are very uneven so ensure your poured surface is level when drying.
- To achieve a matte-look pour, a final application of matte spray varnish over a dry pouring medium/soft body pour will give a smoother, more fluid result than using a matte paint or medium.
How not to use it:
- Do not shake or vigorously over-stir as this can impact the smooth appearance when dry.
- Do not use with any non-acrylic media.
