Liquitex Pouring Medium


Liquitex Pouring Medium creates even puddles and flowing applications when mixed with Acrylic Paint to allow different colours of paint to run and flow into each other without mixing and muddying making it great for marbling effects and abstract colour work. It does not crack, craze or hold bubbles in the paint film upon drying and retains a high gloss, wet appearance when dry. Being transparent, it will not affect the colours mixed with it.

How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • For best pours, start with with a tablespoon of Soft Body colour or Acrylic Ink to a cup of Pouring Medium (around 5% colour 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 colour 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
