Non-Oily Cell Former for Acrylic Pouring

Acrylic Pouring is also commonly known as Fluid Art


Introduction to cell formation in Pouring Acrylic Art

Cells are basically isolated patches of darker or lighter colour in the final artwork. They are a totally different colour to the paint immediately around them or are areas surrounded by a "wall" of different coloured paint. Variations of cells include features like hollow rings, different coloured cell walls, colour streaks and many more.

Cells can be automatically generated by the movement of different coloured paints through one another due to their different densities or differences in viscosity (thickness). A well-known way to increase or force cell generation is to add silicone oil when preparing the pour.

Benefits and drawbacks of using Non-oily Cell Former

The non-oily finish does not interfere with resin-art top coats and does not negatively impact the adhesion of clear acrylic top coats that may be applied.
Reduces the time and effort that is often required to clean oils off acrylic pour artwork. 
A useful product to achieve 'controlled' cell formation as cells can be reduced by stirring or standing after addition. 
A more sensitive chemistry that should not be stirred or allowed to stand for long after adding to paint.

We supply three Cell Forming products, two of which we manufacture ourselves.

100% Silicone Oil
For traditional cell forming chemistry.
A potent cell forming product that uses two mechanisms for cell formation.
Potent Cell Former / Guaranteed Cells /  Cells inside cells inside other cells / Distinct coloured cell walls /  Hollow Spheres........... You'll get them all.
Surpass your expectations and imagination.
Turbo Cell is highly economical as you require less than most other cell forming chemicals.
We recommend Turbo Cell for most applications but if you require a non-oily cell finish then Non-oily Cell Former is the best product for you. 
Non-oily Cell Former

Gives unique benefits of generating Cells in Acrylic Pouring Art with non-oily chemistry. Our Non-oily Cell Former is a bit more sensitive to the way you use it but if you require the benefits of not adding an oily substance then this is the product for you.

How to use our Non-oily Cell Former

For medium sized pours add 3-4 drops directly to all acrylic paints that will be used in the pour. 3-4 drops per 50ml paint is normal.
After addition you must not stir. Just swirl gently or pull a spatula through the paint once in a cross pattern.
After addition you must pour with the paint as soon as possible (within 10 minutes).
It is necessary to have all your individual paint colours and Flow Control well mixed before adding Non-oily Cell Former.
Significant stirring or delays after adding Non-oily Cell Former will result in fewer, small or even no cells.

Keep out of reach of children and avoid eye contact

It is very important to avoid eye-contact with all our Cell Forming products. Permanent eye damage can result from direct eye contact. Dropper bottles may be confused for eye-drop bottles so keep your art products separate from you medical products. In the event of eye contact wash eyes with running water continually and seek medical advice. These products do not harm skin but to prevent unknown effects of absorption through the skin it is better to avoid significant, prolonged and repeat skin contact.

All our products should be kept out of reach of children under 5 years and anybody who may tend to place items or liquids in their mouths should be supervised. Even packing can become a choking hazard.
