Liquitex Matte Medium is a classic medium used to give fluidity to delicate brushwork or to act as a low sheen adhesive for collage.
Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality.
Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability.
Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow.
Reduces surface gloss, increases color depth and transparency.
How to use:
Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products.
Mix with Gloss Medium to create a custom satin fluid medium.
Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results.
Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the viscosity and transparency you want - the more you add, the thinner and more transparent your color 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. 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.
Use with and colours.
