Fluid Paint Mixture and Recipe:

I mix 1/2 Floetrol and 1/2 Acrylic paint to begin. Stir this until smooth, then add water and stir until paint flows off your stir stick when lifted up.

Fine Liners:

I use the two bottles below filled with acrylic paint and a little bit of water for my fine lining details. The bottles used for flowers are filled with the same fluid paint mixture above.
