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

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 color more absorbent and blendable

How to use it

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex Professional products
  • First dilute your concentrated Flow Aid with water - 1 part Flow Aid to 2 parts water - distilled water will give the best results. Use 1 part Flow Aid to 1 parts water if you want a more concentrated effect
  • Add up to 25% of diluted Flow Aid to your color/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 color/medium will sink in like a stain or dye; if using on a non-absorbent surface your color/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
