Turbo Cell in Resin Art

Use 1 drop in 30ml of one colour resin that is poured over another colour before it starts to harden. Pour top colour (with Turbo Cell) in a thin stripe and blow it horizontally into the lower colour with a torch. Cells and fine lacing form.


This video of a resin art beach and ocean scene shows the resultant lacing and cells in parts of the white waves where Turbo Cell was added.

Turbo Cell in Acrylic Pouring Art

Potent Cell Former / Guaranteed Cells:  Cells inside cells inside other cells / Hollow Spheres / Distinctly colored cell walls........... You'll get them all.

Surpass your expectations and imagination.

Turbo Cell significantly surpasses the cell forming ability of benchmark silicone in Acrylic Pouring Art. Amazing Cells are guaranteed. 

Cells form immediately. As normal, torching shortly after pouring is very useful and recommended to get rid of air bubbles but note that the cells formed when using our Flow Control and Turbo Cell are stable and torching in not required to make cells appear or to freeze them into place. Torch anyway to get rid of surface defects caused by air bubbles. 

Use a small amount

If you are used to adding multiple drops of your current cell former then get this out your head when using Turbo Cell. You can probably replace two drops of your existing silicone with one drop of Turbo Cell and still get more cells. Turbo Cell is supplied in convenient dropper bottles. Of course the amount you need depends on the size of your pour but for smallish pours we suggest that you only add 1-2 drops per colour that you are using (or 2-3 drops in half the colours). If you want an explosive result then add more drops to each colour used in your pour but you may find that cell formation is too extreme and that oil becomes visible on the surface of your pour. Turbo Cell is an awesome tool that opens a doorway of opportunities but Acrylic Pouring is an Art and as such we can't tell you exactly how much to use in each case.

We supply three Cell Forming products for Acrylic Pouring

100% Silicone Oil

For traditional cell forming chemistry.


A potent cell forming product that uses two mechanisms for cell formation.

Surpass your expectations and imagination.
We recommend Turbo Cell for most applications but if you require a non-oily cell former then we do manufacture an alternative to Turbo Cell. Turbo Cell is highly economical as you require only about half of the amount of other cell forming chemicals. 

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.

Should I use both Bastion Paint Flow Control Medium and Turbo Cell or just a normal Pouring Medium?

While most cell forming additives rely on an oil (usually silicone) to create cells, our Turbo Cell and Flow Control Medium bring other chemistries into the mix. With Turbo Cell you can achieve unique cell effects that are not normally observed. An example of this is many tiny hollow cells that sometimes form evenly spaced within larger cells. Many other cell effects also result.   

Our Flow Control Medium gives a durable, glossy finish. It is easy to get the correct paint flow (consistency) which is a critical part of getting the cells that you require. 

If you want to do a pour and peel technique to create skins then our Flow Control Medium is great as the super rubbery cohesion that it creates makes it possible to pull the entire dry pour off plastic with no damage to the dry pour at all. For this technique pour onto plastic instead of onto canvas, mdf board etc. 

Keep out of reach of children and prevent 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.
