Liquitex offers a variety of specialty products including Fluid Mediums, Gel mediums, Texture Gels and Additives which have been specifically designed to achieve various techniques, applications and special effects.
Fabric Medium - Liquitex Fabric Medium enhances blending, workability, and adhesion of acrylic colors for painting directly on fabric or unprimed canvas. Reduces dry paint stiffness. No heat setting required.
Slow-Dri Gel Retarder - Liquitex Slow-Dri Gel Retarder is an excellent choice when working in low humidity, or whenever increased workability and blending time of acrylic paints and mediums is desired. Will retain brushstrokes and add body to lower viscosity colors.
Liquithick Thickening Gel - A thickening gel for water soluble acrylic paint and mediums. Used in small amounts, produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint. At higher concentrations, can thicken paint or mediums to "cake" or sculptural consistency. Drying time will be between 24 hours to 7 days depending upon amount added to paint or medium. Liquithick produces a matte surface sheen when dry.
Pouring Medium - Designed to not craze in poured applications, which creates even poured puddles and acrylic sheets. Mix with Soft Body Acrylic Color to promote drying with a smooth even colored film.
Flow Aid Medium - Breaks water tension to improve flow, absorbency and blending of any water based paint, ink or dye and minimizes brush strokes. Use with Liquitex Soft Body color to create very fluid washes without hard edges. Great for staining effects on raw canvas. Note: Be careful not to add more than 25% as there is no binder and it can weaken the stability of the paint film when too much is added.
Airbrush Medium - A pre-filtered, ready-to-use medium that easily thins any acrylic, watercolor, or gouache to the right consistency for spray application. An excellent choice for color washes and watercolor techniques when used with acrylic colors. Mixes well with other mediums to adjust the body and handling properties. Maintains integrity of acrylics even at high dilutions, and decreases airbrush clogging and paint buildup. Use with Liquitex Soft Body Color for best results.
String Gel - Liquitex String Gel is a self leveling gel with honey-like consistency. Gently pouring yields a long, constant-flowing string of gel. Mix with acrylic color for interesting application affects, to enhance depth of color, and to increase transparency and flow. Mixed with acrylic color and brushed, color follows the brush creating long streaking effects.
