Use this additive to increase the open (drying) time of acrylic paints. It is useful for "wet-in-wet" techniques, and for reducing skinning on the palette.
Note — Do not add excess Retarder, or the paint will not dry.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I haven't done a lot of acrylic painting but this product seems to work just as it claims. It's easy to use.

Very good products

This retarder is fantastic to paint with acrylic, it is almost like painting with oil!

Mix the retarder with paint when you setup your palette. Keeps the paint "wet" for a very long time.

This stuff turns art store paints into a fine "shootable" acrylic, using any hobby airbrush. Great stuff.
