from $9.03All purpose glossy medium designed to enhance the intensity and depth of acrylic colours; increase transparency and gloss; ease flow of paint and add flexibility and adhesion of paint film. Once artwork is complete, this medium doubles as a varnish, and can be used as a final, protective layer.
-All purpose Liquitex medium, formulated to be mixed into all Liquitex acrylic paints and mediums
-Use as a non-removable varnish to protect painting and establish glossy sheen surface
-Translucent when wet, transparent when dry
-Dries to a non-tacky, hard, flexible surface that is resistant to dirt retention
-Breathable varnish that allows moisture to pass through, depending on the substrate
-Will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes
-Applicable for any surface (flexible and inflexible), including canvas, paper, wood, Plexiglas, and more.
-Not for use over oil paint.
As an Extender:
-Mix with Liquitex Soft Body Artist Colours to extend volume and increase transparency, while maintaining paint viscosity.
-Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Colours to extend volume and increase transparency, while decreasing paint viscosity.
As a Fixative:
-Use as a fixative over artwork (acrylic paint, pastel, graphite, chalk, etc.) to increase gloss or shine. Mix 1 part Gloss Medium & Varnish to 1 part distilled water. Apply with an atomizer or airbush.
As a Binder / Adhesive:
-Powdered pigments or aggregates may be mixed into Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish, however they must be compatible with acrylics. This can be a cost effective way to make student grade soft body gloss paint.
-The archival properties of Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish make it ideal as a glue for collage materiels.
As a Ground:
-Use as a transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso to allow substrate to be seen. To prevent substrate induced discoloration, wash cotton or linen canvas before use.
As a Varnish:
-Apply as a final, permanent varnish over acrylic paint.
-Surface to be varnished as well as environment must be clean, dry and dust free.
-Acrylic paintings must be completely dried and cured for at least 48-72 hours before varnishing.
-Dilute Gloss Medium & Varnish up to 20% for better brushing and leveling.
-Application may be done by brush or spray. Generally a sprayed application will be thinner, smoother and more even. Rolling or sponging applications are not recommended.
-Caution: Acrylic paints and mediums become increasingly brittle in cold weather. Do not apply below 16°C (60°F). Learn More
