Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Mediums

With the help of mediums, Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylics may be used in a fluid, gestural manner (much like watercolor) and in heavier applications (as with oils). Mediums also allow acrylics to be shaped and carved, used for printmaking, or for virtually any other technique.

Made from the same resinous binder used to make Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic paints, Winsor & Newton acrylic painting mediums enable artists to improve color durability, keep colors brilliant, extend their colors, bring transparency and depth to the film, and improve flow and "brush-ability."

This opaque medium may lighten some colors, and it dries to an even, matte finish.
