Liquitex Acrylic Mediums
In addition to the widest array of Professional and Student colors, Liquitex offers the broadest possible range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. We understand that mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so we’ve tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint, and Finish.

All Fluid Mediums
- Increase Flow
- Dry transparent or translucent
- Extend the volume of thin paint
- Make an excellent archival adhesive for collage
They are fluid in nature and reduce viscosity of heavier paints and gels. They tend to self-level and do not retain brushstrokes. They modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and contain acrylic resins to maintain or enhance adhesion and durability.
Fluid Mediums available:
- Palette Wetting Spray
- Gloss Medium & Varnish
- Glazing Medium
- Matte Medium
- Ultra Matte Medium
- Slow-Dri Blending Medium
A classic medium used to give fluidity to delicate brushwork or to act as a low sheen adhesive for collage. This medium has a creamy consistency and is great with opaque colors. Mix with Gloss Medium & Varnish to create a customized satin effect.

To make fabric paint mix more or less equal parts of medium with acrylic paint (the amount of medium depends on the thickness of the paint you're using) Upon finishing your masterpiece, heat set it by ironing the underside on the cotton setting for 4 minutes. Works great! Highly recommend this fine medium.
The multipurpose use is spectacular, because art supplies can get really expensive really fast. This product is affordable and can really broaden your horizons if you're just starting out, like I am.
I use this with Liquitex Basics and it works really well as a glaze. I have also used it as varnish and was very pleased with the result!
This bottle is a tad on the small size, but is great to try it out before you invest in a larger amount.
I use it to mix with some of my thicker and expensive acrylics to make a little paint go a long way. Not only does it serve as a money saver because I get more bang out of my "paint buck", but I also use it to varnish my acrylic paintings when they are done. A great sealant, makes the colors "pop" and leaves a nice mid-gloss finish. I've already bought another bottle!
