Mix Heavy Body, Fluid, or High Flow Acrylics into Color Pouring Medium Matte provides a low luster finish on color pours. Colors hold their edges when poured wet into wet.
Gently mix 10 parts Color Pouring Medium with 1 part acrylic color, allow mixture to sit covered (ideally overnight) to eliminate air bubbles. Pour close to the surface to reduce air bubbles.
Paintings may need to dry for a few days before moving and tenting is recommended. Do not pour thicker than 1/8” (3mm) or attempt to accelerate drying. (Color Pouring Medium Gloss Item #3501, Color Pouring Medium Matte Item #3502)

Matte pouring is an excellent medium to add to your grounds to create smooth underpainting to draw or paint on.
