Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium - Size: 16 oz.
SKU: LIQ5116
Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium - Size 8 oz.

A classic medium used to give fluidity to delicate brushwork or to act as a low sheen adhesive for collage. This medium has a creamy consistency and is great with opaque colors. Mix with Gloss Medium & Varnish to create a customized satin effect.

Attributes

  • Soft Body.
  • Creates a matte, non-reflecting finish when added to acrylic colors.
  • Mix into any acrylic paint to increase transparency and extend color, increase matte sheen, increase film integrity, ease flow of paint and add flexibility and adhesion of paint film.
  • Mix with Gloss Medium & Varnish to produce a semi-gloss or satin medium.
  • Opaque when wet, translucent when dry.

Application

As An Extender:

  • Mix with Soft Body Concentrated Artist Color to extend volume and increase translucency, while maintaining viscosity.
  • Mix with Heavy Body Artist Color or Basics Acrylic Color to extend volume and increase translucency, while decreasing paint viscosity.

As A Fixative:

  • Use as a matte fixative over artwork (pastel, graphite, chalk) to decrease gloss or shine. Mix 1 part Matte Medium to 1 part distilled water and apply with atomizer or airbrush. Excess medium applied to the surface may cause fogging.

As A Ground:

  • Recommended fluid medium to use as a transparent ground (size), with excellent tooth and adhesion, instead of gesso. This will allow the color and texture of the support to show through. Can be used as a substitute for the rabbit skin and hide glue size traditionally used for oil paintings.
  • For best results use Liquitex Clear Gesso which has more tooth for paint and pastels.
  • Exterior Murals: If the support or wall is somewhat smooth, a coat of Matte Medium should be brushed or two coats sprayed onto the surface onto the surface prior to gessoing.
