|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.|

This is such a fun product to work with but it is VERY MESSY! Do not get it on your skin. Wear long gloves. I got this on my hands, arms and a bit on my legs and after about 2 hours of scrubbing with the rough side of a sponge, rubbing alcohol, a loofa, a nail brush and a washrag... I finally got most of it off (along with a bit of skin, OUCH)!
It dries fairly fast and feels like a rubbery plastic but really does makes cool effects! It is very shiny when dry. I made a 3 piece painting set with it and it sold in less than 3 days off of my Facebook page!
It's worth trying out, just remember to protect anything you don't want it to touch (including yourself).
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
Title: "Radioactive Rain" 2015, 30 x 40 inches- Ashley Kunz / Autumn In December
I used it with my Winsor Newton acrylics while I contemplated getting Golden Open acrylics.
It definitely increased the drying time and the paints were still wet to the touch on the palette the next day. The texture or porousness of the canvas determines the drying time on the panel, but I had to time to rework the paint. I still prefer the Golden Open paints (yes I did break down and buy a set), but I can use up the Winsor paints now.
I have been keeping a small cup of the diluted Flow Aid on hand to use instead of water for thinning paints during the painting process. I'll never use water to thin paints again. It. Is. Amazing. I still keep a cup of water for cleaning the brushes, but this is so much better for preserving pigment purity when thinning the wash.
