Comments about Liquitex Airbrush Medium:
Airbrush medium is only available online or at Blick. I want to thank you for truly caring about a very thorough and diverse inventory! I LOVE that you're not that physically far from me...that is literally a lifesaver. I did make this purchase online because I had the time and it arrived early...yayy! I use the airbrush medium with my acrylics especially when mixing a ground wash for my canvas. It's as thin and fluid as water without creating the huge binding discrepancy that water does. The only slight annoyance with this product is it tends to "spill out" regardless of how careful you are (perhaps a different cap?). That being said, perfect product for needs by Liquitex (Golden makes one too and, of course, Blick Art in Sacramento is the only art retailer in the area that carries that as well!) and great inventory and service at Blick Art!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extremely versatile medium
from Washington D.C.
As with all Liquitex mediums this one is exceptional in its ability to exceed what the manufacturer describes as its uses. I use it for way too many purposes to list here, from airbrushing, washes, spraying protective coats, mixing with powered pigments, making water colors permanent, thinning acrylics for glazes, the list goes on. An incredibly under rated product.

great for painting
I used the airbrush medium to paint with. It's a great alternative to using water. It keeps the film strong even though the paint is thinned
A must for proper thinning of acrylics
By Tony 007
from San Jose, CA
This is a must have product for proper thinning of acrylic paints for airbrushing. I use it for thinning all brands of heavy to soft body acrylic paints including Liquitex. I wish it was available in larger size bottles.

I use this to thin out the acrylic's when needing to make the paint flow easier, and/or to make a fluid acrylic. Great stuff.
Once I got used to this stuff, I absolutely love it! Doesn't water down the paints and keeps the colors vivid. A few things to note though is that it does leave a shiny/tacky-ish finish. Not really that big of a deal if you are sealing with dullcote or a similar flat finish in the end but definitely worth mentioning. My biggest complaint is that I wish they made bigger bottles. You need quite a bit to thin down paint for the airbrush so it goes fast if you do alot of projects or work with thicker paints.
One of FEW places to find this product

Use it to thin even for brush
By Natasha the Tread Head.
from North Idaho
My airbrush hated my GW Citadel acrylics, no matter how much I used of a medium. Vallejo paints paired easily with this medium.So, I just used it to thin my paints for hand application, and I couldn't be happier. Good quality stuff and a price can't really beat.

Saved my paint!
from East Texas
After selling/storing/moving my household, after 3 years, my acrylic paints became quite thickened. I did not know if they were salvageable. This product was excellent! Paint softened, thinned & had no lumps like one would get trying to thin with water. I will only use this product from now on!
By Rocket guy
This medium is almost a necessity when thinning the bottled acrylic paints. I mostly paint model rockets and have noticed that most people try and thin the bottled acrylics with other additives that make the finish less durable.This goes a long way and I think makes the bottled acrylic paints a more affordable way to enjoy acrylics as compared to the premixed airbrush paints.
