What it does

  • Increases surface gloss, colour depth and transparency
  • Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow
  • Extends your colour further without affecting acrylic stability
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality


How to use it

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Mix with Matte Medium to create a custom satin fluid medium
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water – distilled water will give the best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic colour to create the viscosity and transparency you want – the more you add, the thinner and more transparent your colour will become
  • Stir gently to avoid creating foam – if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • This is semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry
  • To fix pastel, graphite or chalk, mix 1 part medium to 1 part distilled water and apply with an atomizer or airbrush
  • Apply with a brush/sponge as a lightweight collaging glue


How not to use it

  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
