The smoothing or pouring medium is used in different ways, alone as a gloss varnish applied with a brush, or blended to:
- Fluidify colours in the Studio Acrylics or Mat Pub ranges, to obtain the desired viscosity without thinning the paint (unlike the addition of water)
- For dripping and pouring techniques, mixed with the colour to make filaments or casting in a mould. It creates smoother and cleaner mottling or running.
- Adding silicone oil in very small amounts (a few drops) can trigger the cell creation process.
