What is A1Creatives?

A1Creatives consists of a water-based liquid and a mineral powder. After mixing, a liquid mass is formed (often compared to pancake mixture). This can be cast in a mold or used for stenciling. A1Creatives can be provided with pigments, metal powder or colored sand to achieve the desired appearance.

Mixing is very easy in a (preferably) silicone cup. Processing time is approximately 12-15 minutes. In general, the A1Creatives is sufficiently cured after about 1 hour for further processing.

Painting and pigmentation

A1Creatives can be painted afterwards with almost all your Mixed Media Acrylic paints. 

It is also possible to mix A1Creatives with A1 pigment so that you can start with your favourite base color.
