What it does
  • Gives even poured puddles and acrylic skins
  • Results in a smooth surface, with no crazing, cracking or bubbles
  • Dries to a high gloss, wet-look finish
  • Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow
  • Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability
  • Maintains color opacity
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • For best pours, start with with a tablespoon of Soft Body color to a cup of Pouring Medium (around 5% color to 95% medium) and adapt to suit your technique
  • To use with Acrylic Ink or Heavy Body Acrylic, adjust ratio to get your desired consistency
  • Stir gently to avoid creating foam - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • Use as a regular fluid medium extender - mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the volume and viscosity you want
  • Crazing and cracking can occur when the flow heights are very uneven so ensure your poured surface is level when drying
  • To achieve a matte-look pour, a final application of Matte Spray Varnish over a dry Pouring Medium/Soft Body pour will give a smoother, more fluid result than using a matte paint or medium 
How not to use it
  • Do not shake or vigorously over-stir as this can impact the smooth appearance when dry
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
