Introducing the NEW Premium FW Ink Pouring Medium
The first pouring medium designed specifically for inks!

Daler-Rowney introduces the new FW Ink Pouring Medium, ideal for artists and crafters experimenting with fluid, pouring and liquid art. Simply mix 1-2 parts of FW Pouring Medium with 1-part ink to create pouring art with a self-leveling, glossy finish. Finished pours dry with a smooth, even colored film. The FW Ink Pouring Medium is suitable for use on canvas, wood and other primed surfaces.

  • One large 750ml bottle with unlimited pouring possibilities
  • Self-leveling, glossy finish with smooth, even colored film
