Schmincke Aqua Watercolor Mediums allow for creative techniques and exceptional effects to be added to traditional watercolor painting. Apply watercolor to canvas, add gloss, make watercolor waterproof, or even create three dimensional effects!

Aerospray Fixative - Use this universal spray fixative as a final fixative for charcoal, pencil, pastel, watercolor, gouache, art prints, ink-jet prints, and photographs. It is non-yellowing, colorless, and fast drying. It can even be painted over with oil colors!

Effect Spray - Spray Schmincke Aqua Effect Spray into still-wet watercolor for serendipitous, painterly effects. The effects are lessened on strong absorbent surfaces. Specific areas to remain unaffected by the spray should first be prepared with Schmincke Liquid Frisket or Masking Fluid.

Fix - Aqua Fix Medium increases paint’s resistance to water—when added to a color it dries to a waterproof finish. This expands the possibilities for transparent painting. Use in place of water for watercolor painting.

Gloss - Schmincke Aqua Gloss increases the gloss and brilliance of watercolors, and also slows the drying time. Apply either over dried watercolor or mix in with watercolor. The gloss effect decreases with stronger dilution. Gloss medium remains water-soluble.

Liquid Frisket - This masking medium is a liquid, colourless gum emulsion for masking specific areas which should remain white. Ideal for use on watercolour paper, smooth drawing paper, photographs, or films. Apply undiluted with a dip pen, cotton, or wooden stick. Allow frisket to dry before working on top of it. It rubs off easily with your finger or an eraser. Remove completely as soon as possible after the painting dries to prevent it sticking to the painting surface.

Masking Fluid - Schmincke Aqua Masking Fluid makes specific areas water resistant. The convenient dispensing bottle allows for fine detail masking work. Allow to dry thoroughly before painting. Do not leave masking fluid longer than 2 days on the paper. It rubs off easily with your finger or an eraser. Remove completely as soon as possible after the painting dries to prevent it sticking to the painting surface. This fluid is ammonia free and available in Blue or Colorless.

Modeling Paste - Schmincke Aqua Modeling Paste allows three-dimensional possibilities and new structure effects with watercolor. Apply on a surface with a spatula, let dry, then paint over with watercolor. The paste may also be tinted with tube watercolor or acrylic color. Available in Coarse or Fine.

Opaque White - Opaque White watercolor medium is a very strong liquid white color that can be used with a brush or dip pen nib in paintings and drawings. Use straight from the bottle as pure white paint or mix with watercolors to create tints and increase opacity. It's ideal for use on toned papers and layering over color to make highlights pop. Comes in a 30 ml. plastic bottle with a dropper top. It's ready to use as is or can be diluted with water.

Pasto - Schmincke Aqua Pasto is a transparent thickening medium which can be used pure or mixed with watercolor to produce impasto effects. It reduces color flow by increasing viscosity, and adds gloss. It is suitable for palette knife techniques in thin layers. It dries slowly and stays water-soluble.

Primer - Schmincke Aqua Primer allows for watercolors to be painted on various surfaces such as canvas and wooden painting panels. It may be tinted with tube watercolor or acrylics, and can applied with a palette knife. Allow to dry completely before painting. Available in Coarse or Fine.

Caution - Follow safety instructions carefully. Not suitable for use by children. Shipping restrictions apply to hazardous materials.
