Pebeo Mediums offer the artist unlimited creative possibilities. The technical and plastic qualities of each medium let the artist create new materials, mix new textures, modify brilliance, alter transparency and build collages.
Mediums are highly transparent, non-yellowing, and can be mixed with acrylic colors, inks, and other mediums, or diluted with water. They are waterproof after drying, display excellent flexibility and film softness, and adhere to most non-greasy bases.
Bindex Binder — The professional's acrylic binder of choice for collages and inlay works of all kinds. Bindex is non-yellowing, translucent, and waterproof when dry, enhancing your projects with a flexible and satin film.
Black Mica Mortar — Made from a mixture of acrylic polymer and black micaceous iron oxide, this mortar achieves the effect of metallic material. It can be worked equally well with a knife or a brush.
Crystal Mortar — This is the thickest and heaviest mortar, made from a mixture of acrylic polymer and quartz crystals. It achieves the effects of transparent and granular materials that reflect light. When mixing with this mortar, it is preferable to use transparent colors. Mix it with Bindex to improve its attachment to the base. Dries to a gloss finish.
Gloss Gel — With a consistency similar to that of Pebeo's Extra Fine Acrylics, this gel can be mixed with colors to increase transparency and depth. It supports all collages and inlays, and is bright and transparent after drying.
Gloss Medium — Transparent after drying, this medium enhances the effect and depth of colors. It dries to a glossy finish recommended for making glazes.
Gloss Varnish — Remarkably transparent, and protective, this varnish creates a strong, flexible, and indelible film that results in an even gloss.
Matte Gel — This gel has the same characteristics as the Gloss Gel, but it dries to a matte and translucent finish.
Matte Medium — This translucent medium brings a degree of mattness that reduces color density. It can be mixed with a gloss medium for a satin finish. Shake before use.
Matte Varnish — This opalescent varnish creates a protective, strong, flexible and indelible film that dries to a matte finish.
Modeling Paste — This opaque paste has a heavy texture for creating reliefs and coatings. Mix it with acrylic color in the moist state and it retains imprints and volume. It dries to a matte finish, does not crack, and can be sculpted and rubbed down when dry.
Sand Mortar — This mortar has a thick and granular consistency resulting from an acrylic and silica polymer base, achieving the effects of granular matter. When tinted with color, it gives a beautiful effect to broken tones. It can be mixed with Bindex. Dries to a semi-matte finish.
Solvent Based UV Absorbent Varnish — Particularly recommended for the protection of artwork exhibited outdoors, this waterproof varnish gives a satin appearance that filters ultraviolet rays. When dry, the varnish can be removed with petroleum or white spirit without altering the acrylic color. Shake before use.
Structure Gel (Heavy Gel) — When this high-density gel is added to a color, it restores mellowness and allows the artist to work with a great deal of thickness. It is opalescent and extends the drying time of colors. Mix with color up to 50% for more economical painting.
