Matisse Flow Formula paints are vibrant, intense colours in a low viscosity formula that glides from the brush.
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 is available in 95 colours covering the full colour spectrum, including several uniquely Australian colours and Metallics.
Matisse Flow Formula paint is a premium artist acrylic paint ideal for mural work, canvas painting, geometrics, hard edge painting techniques, photo realism, fine detailed portrait painting, poster colour and watercolour techniques can be simulated quite easily. In fact, any art that requires intense smooth colours.
Matisse Flow Formula paints are fully compatible with all the range of Matisse Mediums and Matisse Background colours to create a highly versatile painting system for artists.

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
