Liquitex Flow-aid 118 ml

Dramatically increase the flow of your colour/mediums while minimizing brush strokes.

Use with:

  • Acrylic paints and mediums

Use on:

  • All acrylic-friendly surfaces

Techniques

  • Flow art
  • Colour washing
  • Watercolour techniques
  • Staining and bleeding effects

Character:

  • Lightfast and archival
  • Permanent
  • Non-yellowing
  • Flexible and non-cracking
  • Water-resistant when dry
  • Intermixable with all Liquitex materials

What it does:

  • Breaks water tension to improve flow and lower viscosity
  • Gives a smooth finish with less brush strokes due to reduced surface friction
  • Increases transparency and makes colour more absorbent and blendable

How to use it:

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • First dilute your concentrated Flow Aid with water - 1 part Flow Aid to 20 parts water - distilled water will give the best results. Use 1 part Flow Aid to 10 parts water if you want a more concentrated effect
  • Add up to 25% of diluted Flow Aid to your colour/medium and stir slowly to avoid foaming. If it does foam, leave it to sit while the foam disappears
  • If applying to an absorbent surface, your coloru/medium will sink in like a stain or dye; if using on a non-absorbent surface your colour/medium will be more fluid and take longer to dry

How not to use it:

  • Do not use Flow Aid undiluted as it results in poor acrylic adhesion, cracking, tackiness and water sensitivity
  • As this is an additive – with no acrylic binders - do not add more than 25% to your color/medium and do not mix with other additives. This can cause excessive shrinkage, cracking and the acrylic film to break down
  • Do not shake or stir too vigorously as foam will form
  • Don't use for marbling as it breaks the surface tension of the water
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
