Paint pouring with Owatrol’s Easy Flow

Over the last few months we have seen a large peak in paint pouring artists using Owatrol’s Easy Flow as their pouring medium in their works of art and whilst this is not something that Easy Flow was traditionally marketed for, the response and reviews we have received from artists using Easy Flow has been amazing.

For example, take a look at this piece created by artist Charita H. Cadenhead. This was her first time using Easy Flow and she was very happy with the way it turned out (and we can see why!).

We believe you don’t have to be an art connoisseur to be able to appreciate just how beautiful Charita’s art work is.

Here’s what Charita had to say about Easy Flow.

I used it for the first time yesterday and I must say I really liked the experience.  The paint pigments really retained their color well and Owatrol has a very smooth flow and the painting is drying quickly (much sooner than normal).

We are very pleased to have yet another satisfied customer – thank you for your kind words Charita.

What is Easy Flow?

Easy Flow is our water-based paint conditioner which makes interior and exterior emulsion and acrylic paints, including colored wood stains, work more like oil-based paints. It helps to improve paint flow and work-ability and allows the paint to adjust to more difficult conditions such as hot, cold and windy environments.

Whilst doing all this, it also helps to eliminate brush and roller marks by improving the flow of the paint, giving it a much more professional finish and helping you to make progress more quickly.

When using Easy Flow in paint pouring art, what makes it different from other paint conditioners on the market?

Paint pouring artists are switching over to Easy Flow from other brands for a few reasons;

  1. When compared with other brands, Easy Flow hardly has any odor at all, making for a much more pleasant experience when creating your works of art.
  2. Easy Flow has a much more thicker and “creamier” consistency compared to other types of paint conditioners on the market. This makes moving the paint around your canvas a lot easier as you have more control over where you want the paint to go.
  3. Easy Flow creates much neater and stronger cells, so you can avoid your cells bumping into each other when moving you canvas and potentially ruining your piece.
  4. Users have told us that they haven’t experienced any cracks upon drying in their art when using Easy Flow.
  5. Due to Easy Flow being a water-based product, the clean up is very easy – just soap & water.

  1. Hi there!
    Thanks for putting together these informative blog posts about this use.
    One question I have is if there is any type of binder in the product, such as acrylic or vinyl.
    If so, what percentage is it? The reason I ask is because you are stating this product be used as a painting medium, which typically means the majority of the pouring mixtures are comprised of this paint conditioner and the paint amounts added into it would be likely only 20% or so of the mixture.
    Thanks!

      1. Dear Owatrol Team.
        No, the FAQ Post DOES NOT answer my question. I asked if Owatrol is acrylic based or vinyl based. This information is not supplied at the link you provided. You may need to actually find this information out and respond with a proper response.
        Thank you in advance.

        1. Hi Michael,

          Easy Flow is a water-based paint conditioner that is suitable for use in acrylic paint.

          While we have had many customers use Easy Flow as a paint pouring medium for their art projects, it is not something that the product was originally designed for and as such has not been thoroughly tested for this purpose.
          Easy Flow’s ‘main’ purpose is to give your walls a smoother and more professional looking finish when painting them. It does this by improving the paint flow and work-ability of the paint to adjust to more difficult conditions such as hot, cold and windy environments. It also eliminates brush and roller marks allowing for a smooth professional looking finish.

          If you would like more information on Easy Flow, please refer to the full technical information sheet which you can find at the following link: https://owatrol.com/media/ften_floetrol__032204100_1143_18092014.pdf

          All the best,
          The Owatrol Team
