Matisse Flow Formula has all the attributes of the Structure Formula; however, it has a thinner viscosity to allow free flowing brushstrokes or use through an airbrush (with minimal dilution). This allows the paint to be used for fine brushwork with or without water dilution. This paint gives a fine flow with a low-sheen finish and good levelling. Matisse Flow is available in 95 colours covering the full colour spectrum, including several uniquely Australian colours and Metallics.

Matisse Flow Formula paint is a premium artist acrylic paint ideal for mural work, canvas painting, geometrics, hard edge painting techniques, photo realism, fine detailed portrait painting, poster colour and watercolour techniques can be simulated quite easily. In fact, any art that requires intense smooth colours.

Matisse Flow Formula paints are fully compatible with all the range of Matisse Mediums and Matisse Background colours to create a highly versatile painting system for artists.

Matisse Flow Sets.

Available now! Three  Matisse Flow 75ml tube sets: Intro Set, Primary Set, and Australian Colours.


Matisse Flow Formula is compatible with all Matisse Artists Mediums. For matte velvet effects, add MM5 Matt Medium. For buttering up the paint, add MM2 Impasto Medium.

Matisse Flow Formula dries water-resistant but an addition of MM8 Spreader Medium will increase its water-sensitivity for watercolour effects. MM1 Drying Retarder does the same but also slows down drying and film formation.

As an acrylic designer's paint/gouache

Matisse Flow mixed with MM5 Matt Medium is an excellent designers paint, ideal for flat areas of colour and for work to be photographed.
