Liquitex Flow Aid Additive 118ml


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 colour/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 colour/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
