Helmar Silicone Oil is a dispersing agent and can be used to create a variety of effects including cells in resin or acrylic pouring artworks.
Artists can drop Silicone oil directly onto the fluid paint or resin after it’s applied to create interesting cellular details. Alternatively, mix silicone oil with the paint or resin before applying.
Note: Silicone Oil may cause marking in resin if applied from a great height. If using a resin/Silicone oil mix, allow the base resin layer to sit for approximately 10 minutes before applying. We suggest experimenting with a sample piece prior to creating a final artwork.
Helmar Silicone Oil is compatible with most materials, and is a colourless, odourless oil that’s non-toxic.
