Liquitex Gloss and Matte Mediums

Use both Gloss and Matte Mediums as an extender and fixative for Liquitex Acrylic Paints. They can be mixed together, in any proportion, for a semi-gloss or satin medium.

Gloss Medium — Liquitex Gloss Medium is also known as "Gloss Medium Varnish." Use it as a non-removable final picture varnish where a glossy protective coat is desired, or as a painting and glazing medium. It enhances the depth of color intensity, increases transparency and gloss, eases the flow of paint, and adds flexibility and adhesion to the paint film. Translucent when wet, and transparent when dry, this 100% acrylic polymer varnish is water-soluble when wet and can be thinned. Use it as an extender, a fixative, a ground, or a varnish.

Note — Liquitex Gloss Medium is also known as "Gloss Medium Varnish." We disagree with this terminology, because a varnish must technically be removable from the paint surface. Use a true varnish if, for conservation reasons, the varnish must be removable at a later date.

Matte Medium — Mix medium viscosity Matte Medium with acrylic colors for completely matte, dull and flat effects and a non-reflecting finish. When mixed with acrylic paint, it extends color, increases transparency, matte and film integrity, eases paint flow, and adds to the flexibility and adhesion of paint film. It is opaque when wet and translucent when dry. Use it as an extender, a fixative, or a ground. Mix with Gloss Medium for a semi-gloss or satin medium.

Ultra Matte Medium — This fluid with high-resin solids dries to a matte finish. Use to maintain opacity and extend opaque colors to double amounts without changing the color. Ideal for large projects where transparency is not desired.
