Silicone Oil Acrylic Pouring Additive
Demco's silicone oil is an artist quality silicone oil used to produce cell-like formations in acrylic paint pouring techniques.
- Add 1-2 drops of silicone oil per 30ml of fluid acrylics.
- Gently stir once or twice with a palette knife or stirrer. Less mixing allows for larger cells.
- To release the cells created by the oil lightly skim the paint surface with a palette knife to take off the top layer. Do not over stroke or colours will mix and cells will be lost.
- Once dry, wipe surface (especially before adding more paint layers. The oil will have risen and settled on the surface and acrylics will not adhere to the surface unless the oil is wiped away.)
