What's this called when panel lining?

Recommended Posts

So I was helping a friend's son with some panel lining tips and couldn't think of the actual term to describe the behavior of the pigment when it moves itself along the panel lines.

Does anyone know the technical word to describe how the liquid pigment just moves itself up down along these tiny channels even against gravity?

I'm guessing it is either some sort of liquid capillary action or surface adhesion? Just figured someone here might be in a field that deals with these kind of fluid dynamics.

'Capillary Action' is, indeed, the term

What you called it is much better... "liquid pigment that just moves itself"

Well, I did think capillary action sounded so "basement level biology lab" instead of "hobby man-cave" lingo...

How 'bout...

panel-streaking

panoodling

seam-surfing

panellary action

pan-hesion

copaneling

panelicking
