Liquitex Acrylic Mediums are made from 100% acrylic polymer emulsion, and form durable films when dry. They have excellent flexibility and resistance to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. When added to acrylic paint, they alter the handling characteristics, appearance or volume to produce an infinite variety of effects.
Mediums are non-yellowing, non-sticky when wet, and non-tacky when dry. They dry slowly by evaporation, display excellent adhesion, and are non-toxic and intermixable. Available in different viscosities and sheens.
Gloss Heavy Gel Medium — A heavy-bodied medium of great density and extra high viscosity, Heavy Gel dries to a translucent gloss finish. It increases body, density and viscosity, attaining the consistency of oil paint with brush or palette knife marks. Extending paint while increasing brilliance and transparency, it keeps paint workable longer than other gel mediums. Use it as an extender, a ground, or a binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive “student grade” extra-heavy viscosity thick gloss paint.
