Q&A (1)
Q How much of this glazing medium would have to be added to acrylic paint. I.e the ratio of acrylic to the medium to get a gloss finish. I need to know how much of this I need to order. Thank you. Maria Townsend

When it comes to thinning acrylics, guidelines vary. It is a water-based medium and water-soluble when wet, so water can be used to thin it, but some sources say not to mix acrylic with more than 50% water. Any more than this amount of water may cause the polymer in the acrylic paint to break down and lose its adhesive qualities, resulting in peeling or flaking at some stage, or lifting of the paint when you paint subsequent layers. To be safe many acrylic paint manufacturers suggest that you use no more than 30% water in combination with acrylic paints when painting on a non-absorbent surface such as a primed canvas. When painting on an absorbent surface you can use an unlimited amount of water because the fibers of the unprimed canvas, paper, or wood will hold the pigment to the support as well as absorb the excess water.

21st October 2013 Reviewed by Sylwia Slodowy I've been using it for a while and loving it. Usually for colour glazing in acrylic paintings, builds up depths very nicely, no colour shift, nice glossy finish but not plastic -ish. Maintains glossy finish even when mixed with water (unlike some others). My favourite glossing medium.
