Q:If I'm using for a small tabletop, what type of paint and/or acrylic would I mix it with and in what proportions? Would clear silicone caulking work? I'm unsure if I want to remain clear or go with a color, which is why I'm also asking about type of paint

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Debs...we do not recommend the TopCoat for table tops and/or furniture. It is specifically formulated for flexible surfaces like canvas, so it flexes and doesn't crack. That said, it's not suitable for hard surfaces like table tops because it doesn't cure hard like an epoxy. If you set anything on the table top, it most likely will leave a mark or ring, depending on what you set on it. The TopCoat is only for decorative purposes only. -DecoArt Paint Guru

    Q:Is it clear?

    Answer This Question

    A:  It has a milky appearance out of the bottle, dries clear. It is a pouring medium to be used by mixing with paint for acrylic pours. Works very well provides a nice finish when dried. Very good product particularly for the price. I usually buy it by the gallon.

      A:  The Pouring Medium has a white base, so appears milky out of the bottle, but does not affect the color vibrancy when added to acrylics and dries clear. -DecoArt Paint Guru

        Answer This Question

        A:  Unfortunately, it cannot be used on outdoor cushions. The paint that you mix with the Pouring Medium is not flexible and will dry hard. As a result, it will crack and crumble if you try to sit on or back against the cushions. -DecoArt Paint Guru

          Q:Do you still need to add silicone to this? I’m assuming not since the description mentions cells. Anyone know?

          A:  That is totally up to you. I, myself don't use silicone, but lots of artists, do.

            A:  Hello, Lunaflow! I just today watched a video where the artist made two panels; to one, she added no silicone, and to the other she did, and she got great cells with the silicone! I think I learned my lesson - go ahead and add silicone to it! Night and day! What a difference! good luck with your projects!

            A:  Hello, Lunaflow! I tried this pouring medium myself and didn't really get any cells to speak of - maybe the silicone would have improved my results! I just did watch a pouring video today where they did one canvas with no silicone, and one where they added it. She got much better results from that with silicone! OK, lesson learned...! Next time, I'm adding it! Good luck with your work!

            This was a fun product to "play" with. The directions were somewhat vague. It was hard to know how to use the product to achieve the anticipated result. I had seen examples on-line where someone had made a tie-dyed type effect where the colors extended in rings from the area where poured. The directions said to pre-mix all of the paint colors so perhaps that is why our 5 color mixes turned out primarily one color. I think a reference to a you-tube video or an attached booklet of ideas/techniques would have been very helpful for a first-time user. Below are pictures of the three tries that I did, pouring the color onto a thin piece of birch wood. I especially like the green one and plan to add to it, to make a Spring sign for my front door. The light blue art with copper glitter reminds me of an ocean map. Perhaps I could cover it with a saying like "Anchors Away" or "Dreaming of the Islands." It was a fun project but you do have to start with a mentality that, what you get is what it will be. It's art in the most fluid sense. ;-) Have fun creating. My artist friend loved it; but it can be messy, so be prepared.

            Since my wife and I have both taken up acrylic pour painting after learning about the technique watching many Youtube videos, we were excited to try this Deco Art 16 ounce Pouring Medium with our paintings. The thing we like about acrylic pour paintings is that when you add a few drops of silicone or dimethicone to the paint, you get what they call "cells" in the paint that look kind of like amoebas or some other single-celled organism. Deco Art Pouring Medium (DAPM) says it creates rich vibrant paint pours by thinning paint to ideal consistency and creates cell effects. It also reduces cracking and will not slow drying time or lessen adhesion of the paint. To test these claims I mixed three Master's Touch neon colors (purple, yellow and orange) with DAPM according to the directions on the bottle. For craft paints it recommends a 1 to 1 mixture, but that was way too thick. For heavy body acrylics it suggested 3 parts DAPM to 1 part paint, so that's what I finally ended up with. Even that was much thicker than I anticipated, so I decided to try mixing it with some Folk Art blue and orange craft paints. They also never reached normal pouring consistency no matter how much DAPM I added. Eventually, I gave up and squirted a little 3M 100% liquid silicone into a 5 ounce plastic pour cup and started layering in my paints, starting with a layer of pure white, then the neon purple, the regular orange, the regular blue, the neon yellow, neon orange, so leftover deep purple, etc., etc. until the cup was full. I then laid an 11 x 14 canvas on top of my pour cup and tipped the whole works upside down and let it sit for about five minutes while I added a ring of white on the canvas all around the pour cup. Finally, I lifted the cup and let the mixed paints flow over the canvas, tilting it to guide the paint to the corners. I got what I considered a pretty good pour painting, but as it dried, it lost a lot of the cellular structures that had been present while it was wet. I noticed when I was adding the paints to the pour cup that the DAPM enhanced paints were quite heavy and sank to the bottom of the cup almost immediately even though neon paints are supposed to be lighter than regular acrylics. Hardly any of the paint colors that had DAPM in them came to the surface of the painting and I ended up with a lot of "mud" in the painting where too many colors mixed together. I have done other acrylic pour paintings using only school glue, Floetrol, and dimethicone as additives with much better results than I achieved with Deco Art Pouring Medium which is more expensive. Hence, I can't recommend this product for this purpose.

            DecoArt Pouring Medium. 16-Ounce bottle. I have never used Pouring Medium before, so I tested on some sample bottles. The medium thins the paint to allow you to make your designs. I watched a couple of videos to be sure I knew what I was doing and saw so many creative ideas. I love doing crafts, so this will be a pleasure to use. The pouring medium can be used on canvas, wood, Styrofoam and many other crafting surfaces. Medium will not slow down your drying time, alter color or lessen adherence of paint. Medium is water based and none toxic. Easily cleans up. My first try is posted, not so fancy but I did get a good feel of how to use pouring medium.

            Iv'e been wanting to try the DecoArt 16 oz. Pouring Medium. Saw this and had to get it. I made 3 projects with the pouring medium. Used 11" x 14" canvas's. I used.a white canvas, a black canvas and a old planter pot. The white canvas I used 6 colors of Martha Stewart's Metallic Paints, the black canvas I used 6 colors of craft smart paints and the planter I used 6 colors of Patio Paint for outdoors. I purchased 9 oz clears plastic cups and used chop stick for mixing and a tin roasting pan and laid down plastic. Used the whole bottle, it covered all 3 projects and used the dirty pour method on all 3 projects.. Messy but fun. Another great product from DecoArt.

            The 16 oz. Pouring Medium is such a cost efficient way to use paint in and around your house without the entire hassle of scraping off a square piece of paint to take to the store, try and match, and then pay for a whole new bucket! We came across lots of touch-up's needed in our home with the previous owner's paint all dried out (not sealed properly), but with the pouring medium our task is now so much simpler and less time-consuming!

            versatile and great quality
            This is not to be confused with matte medium or gloss medium. The finish is more like satin or eggshell, and does not provide any tooth or grit for surface prep like matte medium does, because that is not the intention for this medium. What it does do beautifully, is work as a pouring medium or even a finish coat that can be brushed onto a finished painting to unify the surface. It is beautiful stuff, I'll buy it again.
