  1. I’ve just started doing pours, and because I didn’t have the proper supplies my work didn’t get the large cells I wanted! I’m really excited to produce better pours now that I’ve gotten better educated by watching this video!!

  2. Hello,
    Which type of Floetrol and which type of Elmer’s glue do you use in your pours? There are multiple versions of each, and I can’t figure out which ones to buy.
    BTW: I love your videos and your pour results. Thanks for the recipes, too!

      1. Hi Deby,
        Thank you very much for this information! I’ve been using a different variety of Floetrol, and wonder if that’s the reason why my ‘pours’ haven’t been working very well.
        I’m ordering this right now, along with the Elmer’s Glue-All, so I will at least have the same products.
        Thanks again,
        -Jan

  3. can I use the silicon seal that is used for stone tiles? How much would i use?
    added this twice, forgot to add notify me on the bottom and submitted it.

    1. Hi Barb, no that is not the same thing at all. That is more like a silicone rubber but you need a silicone oil. The treadmill belt lubricant is a firm favorite with most painters, but you can use any of the oil based products we have in the store here.

  4. Confused about which flood floetrol to get they all have same numbers and added different at the end. So I called Flood Co. and was told all flood floetrol is the same.

    1. Yes they are all the same. Don’t worry about the different packaging, different colored bottles etc. They have changed up their packaging recently but the product inside is the same.

    1. There is nothing that is absolutely safe for everyone to use. People have so many unusual sensitivities these days. Even paint can cause irritation, skin problems and breathing problems for some people. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for details of ingredients and potential hazards, and get all participants in any craft activity to sign a liability waiver.

  5. hi! would WD-40 silicone lubricant work? and when do i add the silicone to a pour?

    do i add it to each color or the final cup prior to pouring?

    thank you!

    1. It can work in a pinch, but its slightly yellowing and does have other chemical ingredients. I suggest investing in treadmill lubricant instead. You can get it in the UK here. Best to add a drop or two to each color as you mix them, and before pouring.
