Airbrush Medium – Liquitex


SKU: 094376924336 Categories: , Tag:

Airbrush painting allows you to create the illusion of shadows, transparency and subtle shading effects that are not easily replicated with traditional brushes or palette knives. This medium can be used to thin colour and mediums to a water-like state ready for airbrush application.

Don’t have an airbrush – no problem! You can use it to thin all types of colour or to create excellent washes and stains of colour. It also gives your paint a watercolour effect.

Use with it with Acrylic paints & mediums – Liquitex Acrylic Ink doesn’t need thinning, but if you are using a Soft Body paint we recommend thinning with Airbrush Medium, this will ensure that the colours do not lose flexibility, durability and adhesion.

Techniques: Airbrushing & spraying, Staining & Fine detail.

What it does

  • Pre-filtered and pre-reduced to thin all consistencies of acrylic paint and mediums ready for spray techniques
  • Reduces airbrush clogging and paint build-up around the nozzle
  • Increases transparency
  • Makes paint behave like watercolour, wash or stain
  • Slightly extends open time
  • Mixes well with other mediums to adjust body and handling qualities
  • Maintains acrylic stability, paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
  • Ideal for dry and hot climates


How to use it

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Start by using in a 1:1 ratio with Soft Body Acrylic or Acrylic Ink, adjusting levels according to the colour chosen as each varies due to pigment size and concentration
  • Airbrush nozzle size and spraying pressure will determine your ratio, so experiment to get the optimum mix
  • Stir gently until the mixture is fully blended – if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • If using with Heavy Body, strain once mixed to remove any particles of undissolved colour
  • Clean out immediately after use before acrylic has a chance to dry


How not to use it

  • Do not allow the paint to dry in the airbrush – always wash it through with warm soapy water, a water/ammonia mixture, airbrush cleaner or alcohol
  • Do not shake
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
