Looking for a paint that can keep pace with your creativity? Try Chroma Atelier Free Flow Artists' Acrylic, a vivid, lightfast, artist-quality acrylic with a wonderful, free-flowing consistency and remarkable versatility. An exciting substitute for ink, watercolor, or gouache, it's perfect for washes and glazes, mixed media pieces, art journaling, gestural painting, quick studies, and much more.
Chroma used the latest advances in pigment and polymer technology to develop these paints. They can be used straight from the bottle or diluted with water for greater transparency. They dry to a rich matte finish with a velvet sheen that seems to glow from the inside. Because they dry so quickly, overpainting can proceed very rapidly and layers don't get muddy.

Comments about Chroma Atelier Free Flow Artists' Acrylics:
Chroma Free Flow acrylics are really wonderful in many ways. Most importantly for me is the fact that the finished painting does not require varnishing. The paints are made so you do not need varnish. Thus, the 3-D effect,that I strive so hard to produce, is not spoiled by shiny flattening varnish.These paints dry to a soft matte finish which is delightful to look at.The colours are brilliant, lasting, archival and cover extremely well.Absolutely first class paints. Thank you Chroma for a terrific product. I shall use these paints always.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was so happy I could finally find these . I wouldn't use any other kind for canvas . They just flow on canvas and they go so far because of the strong pigment.

It is always a pleasure to purchase art work material from B
I mostly paint in oil. I have only begun testing Atelier Acrylics and I am yet to get accustomed to the fast drying time of the medium. I have a bought a range of Atelier Acrylics in the tube and I appreciate the fact that they can be partially reactivated. I haven't tested the Free Flow version yet....

This paint is wonderful to work with. It dries to a velvety sheen when dry. It is the closest thing to gouache I have found yet! It never gets muddy and stays clean and brilliant even when thinned down to a wash. I use this paint exclusively now for under painting my large aviation canvases. I love the level of detail I can achieve. Glazing the under painting with thin suspended layers of oil makes my work luminous and glowing. Chroma atelier free Flow acrylics are helping me improve my technique. Try them for yourself. They are excellent and deserve to be in every studio. The only problem with this paint I can find are the crazy labels. They curl and peel off of the containers. Very annoying, but a quick fix with some clear tape helps. Yikes! They really do peel off as if they have their own mind.......

Atelier Free Flow Artist's Acrylics are great!
from Peoria, AZ
Wanted to try Atelier Free Flow Artist's Acrylics for a painting I had been planning for months; but, product was not available locally. Tried BLICK for the very first time and am very happy with both price and service. And, the paint is fantastic! My painting is progressing well. Atelier Free Flow is now my acrylic paint of choice. Thanks, BLICK.

This worked very well with my other paints!
Great matte flat paint!
from Pahoa, Hawaii
I tried the Free Flow Pyrrole Red and it has intense pigmentation, good coverage in one coat, a matte finish, and it shows virtually no brushstrokes even when applied straight out of the bottle. I compared it to Golden's Fluid Acrylics Pyrrole Red and it is just as nice. Golden's version has more gloss and is slightly thicker out of the bottle so it does show minor brushstrokes unless thinned a bit.
Good value, nice paint
from Tucson, Az
A nice matte acrylic at a good price. The colors are intense and fairly fluid. The color range includes good pigment choices for the most part, though I'd like to see it expanded a bit. I like the flip caps and the 2 oz. size for portability. The only downside I have seen is that the labels were peeling a bit and needed tape; pretty minor! I have used them in outdoor painting and to color gesso. Overall, a good value. I am impressed so far and will buy again.
