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.
Use this additive with Liquitex Acrylics to extend drying time. It increases transparency when floating, shading, blending, and washing colors. Use Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder in place of water before loading the brush with paint, to eliminate drag and improve flow. It helps to reduce paint skinning on the palette, and is excellent for liner work, transparent washes, and wet-on-wet techniques. Cleans up with soap and water.
