Acrylic mediums make it possible to create a wide variety of effects with acrylic paint, from oil-like consistency to watercolor effects.
The great thing about acrylic paints is their versatility. When you add mediums to acrylic paints, you can achieve a huge number of effects. Mediums do everything from slow drying time, to adding texture and body. They can be added to thin the paints without losing the luminosity that is so characteristic to acrylics. Experimenting with mediums is a great way to take your paintings to exciting new places.
