Winsor & Newton's acrylic flow improver increases flow properties of acrylic paints by reducing the fluid's surface tension with negligible loss of color strength. This significantly improves the paint's flow characteristics, providing you with more precise control and positioning, without "watering down" your pigment.
Flow improver is often mixed with a fluid retarder (also called "extender") to provide the dual advantages of both improved flow control and increased drying time. We also sell one of the best fluid retarders: Liquitex Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder for this purpose. For your convenience and economy, we provide a premixed "flow improver and fluid retarder" in a conveniently sized dropper bottle, which we have named Lasting-Flow™.
Lasting-Flow™ is a precise mixture of 25% flow improver, 25% fluid retarder, and 50% distilled water. This ratio is recommended by leading artists in the miniature painting field and personally tested by Miniature-GIANT staff and found to be an excellent proportion -- providing the choice combination of excellent flow control and extended drying time.
