What is Fluid Acrylic Paint?

Fluid acrylic paint, such as Matisse Fluid, is a unique form of acrylic paint thinner than traditional acrylics. Despite its more liquid-like consistency, it retains a high pigment load, producing intense, vibrant colours. Unlike thicker acrylic paints, fluid acrylics flow easily, making them versatile for various artistic techniques. They're perfect for detailed brushwork where precision is required, but they're also ideal for techniques that take advantage of their flowing nature, such as pouring directly onto the canvas or staining. One of the standout characteristics of Matisse Fluid is its ASTM rating of I or II, indicating Very Good to Excellent Lightfastness. This means that the colours resist fading, even when exposed to light, ensuring the longevity of your artwork. Matisse Fluid is also completely opaque when used directly from the container, providing solid and vibrant colours that can stand independently. However, they can also be easily spread with a brush or mixed with water to reveal colour graduation, offering artists a range of possibilities from dark, intense applications to lighter washes.

Is Fluid Paint the Same as Pouring Paint?

  When it comes to the world of acrylic paints, understanding the differences between various types can help artists select the right paint for their specific project. Two terms often come up are "fluid paint" and "pouring paint", and while they may seem similar, they are not always the same.

Fluid paint, like Matisse Fluid, is a type of acrylic paint with a thinner, more liquid-like consistency than traditional acrylics. This unique consistency makes liquid paint versatile for various techniques, from detailed brushwork to more expressive methods.

Pouring paint, on the other hand, is typically designed specifically for pouring techniques, a popular form of abstract art where paint is poured directly onto the canvas and manipulated by tilting the canvas in different directions. Pouring paint is often pre-mixed with a pouring medium, which helps the paint flow more easily and dry with a smooth, glossy finish.

While fluid paint can certainly be used for pouring techniques due to its thinner consistency, not all pouring colours are fluid acrylics. They are traditionally using a pouring medium. to give the paints may have a thicker consistency. 

What sets Matisse Fluid apart is its versatility. It's thin enough for pouring techniques yet pigmented enough for detailed brushwork. This makes Matisse Fluid a fantastic choice for artists who want the flexibility to explore various techniques with a single type of paint.
