Unlocking Formula
Unlock a whole new world 
of painting possibilities.

Atelier’s Unlocking Formula has been specifically designed to help you control the drying of Atelier Interactive. It allows you to keep your acrylic paint wet for as long as you need. Mix the ‘Unlocking Formula’ into your paint with either a brush or an atomiser spray. This ‘Formula’ will keep your paint wet, it will also re-wet or re-open recently dried paint.


How Unlocking Formula works

Both the pigment and acrylic particles are suspended in an acrylic solution.


As the acrylic dries, the acrylic solution forms a hardened coating around the pigment and acrylic particles.

The Unlocking Formula softens the coating around the pigment and acrylic particles.

The Unlocking Formula reverses the drying process enabling you to paint wet-in-wet again.

To ‘prolong’ the drying

You will find that you can easily prolong the drying time for more blending. When Atelier Interactive starts to dry, you can add a small amount of Unlocking Formula into the paint with a brush, which will prolong the drying of the paint. This process can be repeated every time the paint begins to dry.


To ‘reactivate’ after it's dry

You will find that even if your painting has dried you can reactivate any area that you want to by adding a generous amount of Unlocking Formula. The Unlocking Formula will permeate through the layer of dried paint making it wet again. When you have finished painting after using the Unlocking Formula your painting will still dry quickly.
