Welcome to dickblick
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.

Mixing with Gouache to set Brush Calligraphy
from Houston, Texas
Comments about Winsor & Newton Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Mediums:
I'm a brush calligrapher and I use gouache to address envelopes. The dried gouache can catch and rub off onto the next envelope, especially with cotton envelopes which are a bit rougher than most. I emailed Winsor & Newton to ask for a medium that might help with this and they recommended Winsor & Newton Acrylic Matte Medium. I haven't tried it yet with cotton envelopes but with the linen textured there was no smearing once dry. I am very happy with this purchase. A little goes a long way and the bottle is huge.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

AS USUAL AND ALWAYS !
from North Carolina
Quick drying gloss used to highlight painted flowers with matte varnish to add contrast to the background and make the gloss POP
Made my eyes water
An artist friend suggested this to use as the final coat over gel medium. I couldn't use it because it made my eyes water and my nose run. Que sera. I gave it to my friend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love it!!
from Monroe, WA
I use it as intended with my Winsor & Newton acrylic paints. I find it works well with the Golden and Dick Blick artists paints. I have always loved the Winsor & Newton paints and now love the mediums too!

Gloss Gel has a strange texture
By Brian R
from Pasadena, CA
I really like the Gloss Medium and use it regularly. However, the Gloss Gel has a weird jello-like texture that I find unusable. I bought it to create impasto textures and thicken the paint, but it's gelatinous texture doesn't mix well and it doesn't hold knife marks. I love the new line of Artist's Acrylics, but this product does not perform. Giving 3 stars as an average. The Medium is 5-star and the Gel would be 1-star or zero if possible.
The Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Mediums are a great compliment to the acrylic color range as they contain the same cutting edge clear resin to prevents color shift. See the range of these quality acrylic mediums and varnishes to enhance your painting experience — and results!
