Description

Liquitex Gloss Medium improves flow and adhesion of paint film when mixed directly with acrylic paint.

  • Liquitex Gloss Medium is perfect for adding a gloss finish to acrylic paints if you don't want the typical matt finish acrylic paints give.
  • Increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency.
  • Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow.
  • Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability.
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality.
  • Use as a non-removable varnish to protect paintings and establish a gloss surface sheen.
  • Ideal to use as a glue when collaging with lightweight materials.
  • Transfers printed images.

 



How to use


 

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products.
  • Mix with Matte 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 Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic and Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic colours.

8th July 2020 Reviewed by Hilary Musk I use this to mix with thicker acrylic paint to give it a sense of gloss, so it can have more *** when I use it thick. Also it can be diluted with water and added afterwards with a tiny hint of colour to add an interesting *** and can be used for reflections!

30th March 2018 Reviewed by Graham Park I’ve always used water with acrylics before, this gives so much more control. With it you’re able to maintain the consistency of the paint so it goes on exactly the same every time. Best of all though, the varnish gives acrylics a shiny finish very similar to oils, but much more quick drying. I’ll be trying other liquitex mediums.
