Liquitex Gloss Medium

Give your paint a gloss finish, while thinning and extending its volume. Or use as a collaging adhesive and fixative.

What it does
  • 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 it
  • 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

 

How not to use it
  • 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
