Matisse Flow formula
Matisse Flow Formula has all the attributes of the Structure Formula; however, it has a thinner viscosity to allow free flowing brushstrokes or use through an airbrush (with minimal dilution). This allows the paint to be used for fine brushwork with or without water dilution. This paint gives a fine flow with a low-sheen finish and good levelling.

Matisse Flow Formula is highly suited to mural work, acrylic canvas painting, theatre backdrops, geometrics, hard edge, photo realism, air-brushing etc... and fine detail brushwork, poster colour and watercolour techniques can be simulated quite easily.
New! Matisse Flow Sets
Available now! Three new Matisse Flow 75ml tube sets: Intro Set, Primary Set, and Australian Colours.
Matisse Flow Formula dries water-resistant but an addition of MM8 Spreader Medium will increase its water-sensitivity for watercolour effects. MM1 Drying Retarder does the same but also slows down drying and film formation.
As an acrylic designer's paint/gouache
Matisse Flow mixed with MM5 Matt Medium is an excellent designers paint, ideal for flat areas of colour and for work to be photographed.
