Pouring Medium


Originally designed to improve paint levelling and reduce brush marks, the Pouring Medium, or Self-Levelling Medium, is a key “ingredient” for Acrylic Pour Art. We stock several grades of Pouring Medium for your selection, all of which are sourced from USA to ensure high quality materials for your art.

Choose from any of the three options: Artist Grade, Studio Grade and Kids-Friendly. We are using the Studio Grade for most of our workshops. Refer to table below for a detailed comparison.
