Liquitex Acrylic Flow Aid Enhancer - Size: 4 oz.
SKU: LIQ5620
Liquitex Acrylic Flow Aid Enhancer - Size 4 oz.

Breaks water tension to improve flow, absorbancy and blending of any water based paint, ink or dye and minimizes brush strokes. Use with Liquitex Soft Body color to create very fluid washes without hard edges. Great for staining effects on raw canvas.

Attributes

  • For all acrylic paints and mediums.
  • Use in conjunction with any acrylic medium or color when increased flow and absorption and decreased film tension and friction are important.
  • A flow enhancer that improves the flow, absorption and blending of any water-soluble paint (i.e. acrylic paint), medium, ink or dye.
  • Minimizes brush marks by reducing friction of paint application.
  • Does not contain binder. Over thinning of acrylic paint with Flow-AidTM and applying to a non-absorbent surface (i.e. gessoed canvas) may result in poor adhesion. Always make a test piece for your particular application and surface on non-absorbent surfaces, will increase the fluidity and open (drying) time of the paint.
  • On absorbent surfaces, will act as a stain, dye or watercolor.

Directions

  • Flow-Aid™ is a concentrate. Dilute with water before mixing into paint. Distilled water is best, since quality of tap water varies.
  • Minimum dilution: 1 part Flow-Aid to 10 parts distilled water to achieve Flow-Aid Water.
  • Normal dilution: 1 part Flow-Aid to 20 parts distilled water to achieve Flow-Aid Water.
  • Do not use undiluted. Using undiluted may result in poor paint adhesion, cause paint to crack, remain tacky and become water sensitive.
  • Do not shake or rapidly stir. This will increase foaming of Flow-Aid . Wait until foaming has subsided before using.
  • Absorbent surfaces: Use as much Flow-Aid as necessary. The Flow-Aid Water/paint mixture will be absorbed by the support.
  • Mix Flow-Aid Water into water based paint. Do not mix Flow-Aid with turpentine or oil paint.
  • Do not use Flow-Aid in marbling, as this technique requires that the surface tension of the water film be maintained.
