Matisse Flow Acrylics 5 Stars Rating
Matisse Flow Formula has all the attributes of Matisse Structure Acrylics, but 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 Structure Acrylics & Sets 5 Stars Rating
Made with the purest grade of pigment, Gallery Semi-Hard pastels have unsurpassed bright colors and the highest degree of lightfastness. Their square shape and semi-hardness makes them ideal for both rough sketch and painting, or broad side being easy to use to cover wide areas.
