Fluid Painting Medium

Texture: Fluid

Sheen: Gloss

Relative Opacity: Transparent

 

  • All purpose Liquitex medium formulated to be mixed with all Liquitex acrylic paints and mediums. 
  • Mix into any acrylic paint to enhance the depth of colour intensity, increase transparency, gloss, ease flow of paint and add flexibility and adhesion of paint film. 
  • Use as a non-removable varnish to protect painting and establish gloss sheen surface. 
  • Translucent when wet, transparent (clear) when dry. 
  • Dries to a non-tacky, hard, flexible surface that is resistant to dirt retention. 
  • Depending upon the substrate, allows moisture to pass through (breathable). 
  • 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, etc. 
  • Not for use over oil paint. 

APPLICATIONS AS A MEDIUM

As an Extender:

  • Mix with Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency, while maintaining paint viscosity.
  • Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency, while decreasing paint viscosity.  

As a Fixative:

  • Use as a fixative over artwork (acrylic paint, pastel, graphite, chalk) to increase gloss or shine. Mix 1 part Gloss Medium & Varnish to 1 part distilled water. Apply with atomiser or airbrush. 

As a Binder / Adhesive:

  • Powdered pigments or aggregates may be mixed into Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish, however, they must be compatible with acrylics. 
  • College material may be glued using Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish as a liquid glue. 

As a Ground:

  • Use as a transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso to allow the substrate to be seen. 
  • With Powdered Pigments:
  • Use as a binder with powdered pigments to make an inexpensive student grade Soft Body gloss paint. 

APPLICATION AS A VARNISH

  • Gloss Varnish for flexible surfaces is recommended as the best varnish for acrylic paintings. 
  • Apply Gloss Medium and Varnish as a final permanent varnish over dry acrylic paint. 
  • Varnish surface and environment must be clean, dry and dust free. 
  • Acrylic paintings must be completely dried and cured for 48-72 hours before varnishing. 
  • Dilute Gloss Medium and Varnish up to 20% for better brushing and levelling. 
  • An application may be done by brush or spray. Generally, a sprayed application will be thinner, smoother and more even. Rolling or sponging application is not recommended. 
  • Caution: Acrylic paints and mediums become increasingly brittle in cold weather. Do not apply below 60 degrees.
