Liquitex Fluid Mediums perform much in the way that their name implies, they are fluid in nature and reduce viscosity of heavier paints and gels. They tend to self-level and do not retain brushstrokes. Liquitex Fluid Mediums modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and contain acrylic resins to maintain or enhance adhesion and durability.
Gloss Medium & Varnish - Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish is the workhorse of the Liquitex Mediums range. Gloss Medium & Varnish is an all-purpose medium that performs two functions. It can be used as a varnish and/or a fluid gloss medium. It improves adhesion of paint film and increases color depth, intensity, and gloss. It can also be used as a non-removable varnish to protect the surface and establish an even gloss sheen.
Matte Medium - Liquitex Matte Medium is a classic medium used to give fluidity to delicate brushwork or to act as a low sheen adhesive for collage. This medium has a creamy consistency and is great with opaque colors. Mix with Gloss Medium & Varnish to create a customized satin effect.
Slow-Dri Blending Medium - Liquitex Slow-Dri Blending Medium is an essential medium for creating softer edges and modeled forms. This medium is used to extend the open time of acrylics by more than 40 percent, giving you an opportunity to really work the paint to enhance color blending. You can add up to 50 percent of this medium, as it contains binder to retain the integrity of the paint film, unlike the additives version.
Glazing Medium - Use Liquitex Glazing Medium when maximum transparency is required to add luminosity and depth to your paintings. This fluid medium can be used to create brilliant glazes when mixed with transparent color. Glazing Medium dries quickly for rapid layering and tends to minimize or eliminate brush strokes. Mix with Slow-Dri Blending Medium or Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder to extend the working time.
Palette Wetting Spray - Liquitex Palette Wetting Spray is an innovative fluid acrylic resin designed to slow the drying of colors. Spray onto your palette or directly onto the surface of a painting. This medium improves color blending and can be used to thin color while maintaining film integrity. Use repeatedly to prevent paint from skinning over.
