Derivan‘s range of Matisse Painting Mediums are complementary products designed to make acrylic paint more versatile. They can be used with the Matisse Structure and Flow formulas, Matisse Inks and Matisse Background ranges.
Surface Tension Breaker 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”.
Used correctly, it will make Matisse 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 very valuable additive in stain painting techniques and water wash applications when working on hand-pressed watercolour paper or absorbent, bleached but unprimed canvas.
