Welcome to dickblick
Use polymer and matte mediums to extend and thin acrylic paints, while promoting even flow and leveling, and maintaining the film's stability. Mix gloss and matte mediums to create a custom satin finish.
Fluid Matte Medium
a liquid medium for extending colors, decreasing gloss, and increasing film integrity. Works well with Golden Fluid Acrylics.
This is a general purpose, pourable medium, for extending color, decreasing gloss, and increasing film integrity. It can also be used to create a clear ground, instead of gesso.
Super Loaded Matte Medium
This medium contains an extremely high level of matting agent, so by adding just a little you can effectively reduce gloss and shine without compromising color strength or viscosity. Not intended for use on its own, it should always be blended with acrylic paint.

Awful consistency with non-Golden products
from Orlando, Fla
Comments about Golden Polymer and Matte Mediums:
I use matte medium with several different brands of acrylic paint to create soft glazes over opaque layers. After reading that Golden's matte medium is considered by many to be the best of its kind, I decided to try it. It made all of my paint unmistakably, unchangeably streaky, dragging pigment such that every brushstroke featured a prominent perimeter with virtually no pigment within. This is basically what mixing too much water in cheap acrylic paint looks like. Just wrong. It's possible that Golden products only work with other Golden products... but it's simply not cost effective to be limited by brand, with respect to acrylic paint. In my opinion Golden matte medium is completely unusable for acrylic glazing. If you are considering this product for that technique, I absolutely recommend Liquitex fluid matte medium.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Relatively non-toxic. Blends with other acrylic paints without a problem. East to manipulate without a disaster.
Another great Golden product

I just started using Golden Matte Medium so I'm still experimenting but I do already notice the difference that using Golden matte Medium makes. I also started using this medium to adhere Gold Leaf- works great.
Easy to use
Comments about Golden Polymer Gloss Medium:
I just began to work with flax fibers, and the instructor suggested this product. It works great on sealing the flax.
I would buy this product again and again
from Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico
This medium is great for diluting acrylic paint. If you want to dilute your acrylic paint with water, don't exceed over 30%, the rest of the acrylic paint you'll HAVE to dilute it with a medium (mix both of them, water and medium), like this fantastic medium, which happens to be matte; Golden has other kinds.

Best Matte Medium
from Central PA
I use Golden matte medium in my multimedia paintings with watercolor and acrylic. I start with a couple watercolor layers, then brush on diluted matte medium to protect the watercolor layer. I can then add acrylic paint and remove paint with isopropal alcohol and the watercolor layer is protected...

I've always enjoyed Golden's paints, mediums etc. and this product was EXCELLENT to work with.
Applies easily to dry surfaces. Also mixes well with wet mediums.
