Matisse Fluid Acrylics are highly pigmented, liquid like paint. Each colour has an ASTM rating of I or II indicating very good lightfastness to excellent lightfastness. Matisse Fluid Acrylics have a very smooth, runny but slightly dense viscosity. Being highly pigmented, the colours will appear dark and intense on initial application but can be spread easily with a brush or mixed with water to reveal the colour graduation. The intensity of the colours makes Matisse Fluid Acrylic ideal for tints and can create colour wash effects similar to watercolour but with the permanence of an acrylic paint.
Matisse Fluid is compatible with Matisse Structure and Matisse Flow formula paint and can be blended together or used by itself on the same artwork.
