Pigment Load & Fluidity

The System3 Fluid Acrylic has a highly intense pigment load which equals high tinting strength. Its high flow formula allows you to load a brush more evenly and assists with long paint strokes, which allows the fluid acrylic to go further for maximum coverage of your surface.

Tints = 50% color mixed with 50% titanium white

High quality lightfast pigments ensure excellent color permanence, richness, intensity and intermixability. This acrylic maintains depth of color, vibrancy and opacity.

Fluid Opacity

Contrary to what you might think, System3 Fluid Acrylic is just as pigmented and opaque as a regular body acrylic range.

Highly Versatile Fluid

The System3 Fluid Acrylic supports a wide range of applications: poured, puddled, dripped, dragged, layered and glazed. This incredibly versatile fluid acrylic can be mixed with different acrylic mediums like texture paste, as well as textile printing mediums, screen printing mediums, airbrush mediums and System3 Pouring Mediums for traditional fluid art techniques.

There is no need to dilute System3 Fluid Acrylics with water for immediate use, but they can be used for watercolor techniques, such as wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry. System3 Fluid Acrylics have very versatile applications, including: brush, fine details, knife, tools, pouring, dripping, spraying, staining and more liquid art techniques. Its self-leveling formula is great for glazing and layering, allowing minimal brush strokes.

System3 Fluid Acrylic bottles are reusable! They can be refilled by taking the nib out of the bottle and reinserting once filled. This nozzle top is ideal for precise applications and to create lines or other small and delicate details.
