Matisse Surface Tension Breaker

Or 4 easy payments of $4.74 with Afterpay info

Manufacturer: Matisse
$18.95

Matisse Surface Tension Breaker used correctly will make acrylic paint more “runny” by increasing its flow properties. Its presence within a water and paint mixture will greatly facilitate colour penetration into absorbent paper or fabric grounds, e.g. raw canvas. It is a dispersant and is used to break down the surface tension of the acrylic paints.

It acts as a powerful penetrating agent. It is also known as “watercolour medium” or “flow medium”.

It is a very valuable additive in stain painting techniques and water wash applications when working on hand-pressed watercolour paper or absorbent, bleached but unprimed canvas.

For correct results, MM3 Surface Tension Breaker is always pre diluted with the quantity of water to be used for thinning the paint. It is wise to prepare a stock jar of water with 5-10% MM3 Surface Tension Breaker and use this water for the overall painting.
