Fluid additive specially formulated to enable paint to flow easily across a surface. It thins paint to the ideal consistency, creates cell effects, and reduces cracking and crazing. It will not slow down the drying time, alter the color, or lessen the adhesion of paint. Mix with Americana Acrylics or DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics to create stunning effects on canvas, wood, or other art surfaces. Ratios can be adjusted for a variety of effects.
Mix slowly into paint to avoid creating bubbles. Begin mixing using these basic ratio guidelines and adjust until mixture is thin enough to flow easily off of surface when poured: fluid acrylics: 2:1 Paint to Pouring Medium; craft acrylics: 1:1 Paint to Pouring Medium; medium body acrylics: 1:3 Paint to Pouring Medium; heavy body acrylics: 1:6 Paint to Pouring Medium. Once paint is dry, finish with DecoArt Clear Pouring Topcoat if desired. Water-based. Non-yellowing. Soap and water clean up.
Having a clean workspace is essential for creating beautiful pour projects. Utilize common household items to make paint pouring easy and cleanup quick.
Freezer paper or disposable tablecloth – for covering work area (don’t forget the floors).
Foil roasting pans – for containing run-off paint. Ideal for standard surfaces. Use a washing machine drip pan for larger surfaces.
Disposable cups – larger cups for mixing and pouring, smaller for elevating canvas. Clear cups make it easier to see what quantities and layers you are pouring.
Gloves – keeps hands clean while mixing and pouring.
Craft Sticks – these inexpensive, disposable tools are very practical for mixing paint or smoothing out the edge of a canvas.
Push Pins – large push pins can be used as props to elevate canvas or to create “handles” for easily tilting the canvas back and forth.
