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.
Liquitex Acrylic Mediums
All Gel Mediums:
- Add Body
- Increase 'open' time
- Dry transparent or translucent
- Extend the volume of paint
- Hold brush or knife marks
- Make an excellent archival adhesive for collage
Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels also add 'open time' as they tend to dry slower than thinner paint films. These mediums also also modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.
Gel Mediums available:
- Gloss Gel
- Gloss Heavy Gel
- Gloss Super Heavy Gel
- Matte Gel
- Matte Super Heavy Gel
- Ultra Matte Gel
- Slow-Dri Blending Gel
- Modeling Paste
- Light Modeling Paste
- Flexible Modeling Paste
A thick gel that imparts a translucent matte sheen when dry. Ideal for creating collages with heavier objects. Combine with Gloss Gel to create a customized satin finish.
|Gloss Gel||Gloss Heavy Gel||Gloss Super Heavy Gel||Matte Super Heavy Gel||Ultra Matte Gel|
|Also available:||Excellent for retaining brush marks while slowing the drying time and adding body to the paint||A very thick gel medium that extends working time and increases brilliance and transparency||A super thick gel with high surface drag used to create a stiff “oil-like” feel||A super thick gel which retains high-peaks and crisp brush and knife strokes with very little shrinkage||A gel with high resin solids that dries to a matte finish|
|Mix with transparent colors for impasto glazes of great depth and brilliance||Mix with acrylic paint to increase body and attain oil paint like consistency that holds brush or palette knife marks||Ideal for creating high peaks and sculptural applications that hold shape when dry, with minimal shrinkage||This medium keeps paint workable longer than most other gel mediums and dries to a translucent matte finish||Maintains color opacity and extends paint to double amounts without changing color position|
|Slow-Dri Blending Gel||Modeling Paste||Light Modeling Paste||Flexible Modeling Paste|
|A heavy body gel used to extend the “open” time of acrylics by more than 40% for easier blending||A very thick, matte, opaque preparation of marble dust and polymer emulsion used to build heavy textures on rigid surfaces||A lightweight and airy preparation of marble dust and polymer emulsion specifically formulated to be used in applications where weight is a factor||A matte, opaque preparation of marble dust and polymer emulsion|

Naturally, I try to not get any on my hands, but it's worth noting that there are no warning labels on the jar. There's also no expiration date on the jar.
If you are a beginner artist and are looking to try some different mediums, I suggest you start with one of the Liquitex products. They are easy to mix with water based paints, and you don't need to use much at all, so you play around with different combinations and techniques until you find a method that works for you.
Great product and comes in several different sizes, as well as light, medium, and heavy, and matte or glossy.
If you interested in trying the wood transfers, look here,[...]
