IN MIXED MEDIA

Derivan Pouring Medium can also be used to create transparent polymer/acrylic layers that can be peeled away and added to mix media artworks when applied to a non stick surface such as PP (Polypropylene) or PE (Polyethylene) plastic sheets.

Method:

After colour has been added to the medium and left to stand, it can be poured onto plastic ring binder sleeves and left to dry. Once dry and peeled, the soft, plastic-like formations can also be easily cut with scissors to any desired shape. Unfortunately, acetate sheets or glass surfaces are not recommended for this process as the medium will adhere to the surface, therefore standard plastic ring binder sheets are ideal.

Hint

Small objects such as beads and thread can also be embedded into the surface. Simply add the objects to the wet medium and allow drying.

iN VARNISHING 

Derivan Pouring Medium is archival and can be used over any acrylic painted surface (as long as it is thoroughly dry) to create a high gloss, resin-like coat of varnish. It can be applied by pouring but this technique is recommended only for the application on rigid substrates. It is important to remember that since Derivan Pouring Medium is a water based medium, it is not suitable for use over oil painted surfaces. The use of a brush is recommended when varnishing flexible surfaces to avoid “pulling” due to surface tension of the product.

Method:

Create a masking tape border around the edges of the board to keep the medium from dripping down the sides, and leave the tape in place until the medium is dry. Then, simply pour on and gently roll the board to allow the medium to flow and coat the entire surface. Let this coat of medium dry and remove the tape. Any ridges that formed along the edge against the tape wall can be trimmed with a scalpel or hobby knife. Larger areas that cannot be rolled may need to have the medium gently brushed over the surface.

A soft-bristle brush is recommended and a light touch is required as over brushing and manipulating the medium excessively for long periods as it is curing, can affect the smoothness of the finish. In terms of application, one coat of Derivan Pouring medium the same finish as approximately two to three layers of a standard acrylic gloss varnish.

This medium has been formulated so you can adjust the viscosity. You can add up to 20% water to thin this product.

DO NOT ALLOW TO FREEZE

dRYING TIME

The thickness of application of this product will determine the length of drying time. For a thin coat, a standard estimation is 48hrs, but prevailing atmospheric conditions upon application may influence drying time (humidity, heat, cold, etc.).

WARNING do not force dry or use in temperatures above 30℃ as premature skinning may occur trapping water in the coating resulting in an opaque or cloudy finish.

FINISH

Derivan Pouring medium has a HI-Gloss finish and may become more so with thicker or multiple applications.

CLEAN UP

Clean brushes, palette knives, jugs and hands with warm, soapy water.
