|Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder||Flow Aid||Slow-Dri Gel Retarder||Fabric Medium||Airbrush Medium||Iridescent Medium|
|A fluid that slows the drying time of acrylic paints and mediums by up to 40%.||Breaks water tension to improve flow, absorbency and blending of any water based paint, ink or dye and minimizes brush strokes||An excellent choice when working in low humidity, or whenever increased workability and blending time of acrylic paints and mediums is desired||Enhances blending, workability, and adhesion of acrylic colors for painting directly on fabric or unprimed canvas||A pre-filtered, ready-to-use medium that easily thins any acrylic, watercolor, or gouache to the right consistency for spray application||Adds richness to acrylic colors by creating a metallic/pearlescent effect|
|Mix into the paint when on the palette to slow the skinning-over of paint and increase blending time||Great for staining effects on raw canvas||Will retain brushstrokes and add body to lower viscosity colors||Reduces dry paint stiffness||An excellent choice for color washes and watercolor techniques when used with acrylic colors||Can add shimmer or sparkle to a picture even in the smallest amount|
|String Gel||Ceramic Stucco||White Opaque Flakes||Blended Fibers||Glass Beads||Pouring Medium|
|A self leveling gel with honey-like consistency||This thick, fine-textured gel can be applied with a palette knife to give the surface finish of an Italian fresco||A heavy, coarse gel containing irregular sized and shaped white opaque flakes||Great for adding texture and body to painted forms||A medium body gel that contains clear round plastic beads and dries to a semi-gloss surface||Designed to not craze in poured applications, which creates even poured puddles and acrylic sheets|
|Mix with acrylic color for interesting application affects, to enhance depth of color, and to increase transparency and flow||It dries to a light gray matte stucco finish and is a great absorbent ground for washes and glazing||May be used to create foliage effects in landscapes by mixing with opaque color or glazing over when dry||This thick opaque gel, when dry, will give the effect of flexible fibers with a matt sheen||Perfect for creating a “bubbly” but smooth texture that can be dramatic when mixed with color||Mix with Soft Body Acrylic Color to promote drying with a smooth even colored film.|
|Liquithick Thickening Gel||Resin Sand||Natural Sand||Black Lava|
|Excellent for sculptural effects when a matt finish is desired||A thick, coarse gel that dries to a semi-gloss texture similar to rough cement||A fine-textured gel that dries to the appearance of glossy beach sand||A clear gel speckled with small black particles that adds an innovative dimension to paint surfaces|
|Gives the handling characteristics of oil or encaustic paint when added to water-based acrylic paints and mediums||Mix with Black Lava and Ceramic Stucco to create an absorbent, granite like surface that is very receptive to Soft Body colors.||An excellent choice to add a bit of “tooth” to an under-painting.||Gives dramatic effects when mixed with transparent, translucent, or interference colors and can be used to darken values in a picture.|

I will definitely be buying this again!
I make fluid paintings with this and another liquidex product. I trust this company and their products. I attached photos of my paintings that were created with this
I used this product to turn my acrylic paint into "fabric paint". I mixed equal parts of this product + acrylic paint and started painting my super dirty Ugg boots (what can I say, I'm not buying another pair of Uggs for $200+ when I can spend $15 in supplies to make them look new again!). I will post photos of the results (understand, I wasn't super careful on the paint job... but they still look good, I think). A few notes incase you decide to attempt this yourself. 1) if you skip the liquitex and just use your acrylic paint, your Uggs with feel like cardboard. Don't do it. 2) Stuff socks in your Uggs before you start so they keep their shape. 3) It's ok to use a higher ratio of liquitex to paint (more liquitex, less paint), the consistency of the paint will be thinner, but the result will be a softer finish when they dry 4) Let it dry a full 24 hours and then use your hair dryer to heat it up and lock in the paint. After all this, I plan on spraying them with a waterproofer (I ordered one here, called Kiwi Camp Dry. It arrives tomorrow, so we'll see if it works!). Oh yeah, I also ordered new Ugg insoles on Amazon for around $15, so the insides would feel brand new). Hope this helps someone!!
BTW, you can use any paint color you want. I used Martha Stewart Satin Sycamore Bark.
This product works by reducing the surface tension of the paint (and water) and allows the paint to flow freely. Detail work become much easier to do, as does washes. I bought 2 four oz bottles, and I've barely touched the top 20% of one of them! Little bit goes a really LONG way.
** UPDATE** 15 July 2014
Have discovered that I can thin paint so much that it will allow the paint underneath of it to show through and blend... even paint that is normally opaque. If you would attempt to do this with just water, you could potentially thin it to the point where the binders in the paint no longer adhere well. Flow Aid allows you to thin the paint without using nearly as much water (because of the greatly reduced surface tension), therefore making a wonderful wash to place on top of an existing layer of paint, allowing you to create a unique blend that would otherwise not be possible.
One way I have been using this newly discovered technique (new to me anyway) is creating the slightly darker areas of the same color, in the natural folds of clothing of the tiny figurines that I paint, giving it nice depth.
A secondary benefit, is that it greatly extends expensive paints, thereby stretching your paint dollars much further, and I have still yet to hardly touch the first bottle I purchased!!
