**Exclusions & Details
Liquitex offers a variety of specialty products, including Fluid Mediums, Gel Mediums, Texture Gels, and Additives that have been specifically designed for various techniques and applications, and to achieve special effects.
Note — If too much Slow-Dri Retarder is added, the additive will interfere with polymerization of the paint film. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Slow-Dri Gel Retarder
Use this additive with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color, Liquitex Heavy Body Mediums, and all other acrylic paints and mediums when working in low humidity, or whenever increased workability and blending time are desired. Similar to Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder (except in a heavy-body, thick consistency), Slow-Dri Gel Retarder also retains brushstrokes and adds body when added to to lower-viscosity colors such as Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color and Soft Body Mediums. Add no more than 25% to paint, as the absence of a binder may weaken the stability of the paint film if too much is added.
Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder
Use this additive with Liquitex Acrylics to extend drying time. It increases transparency when floating, shading, blending, and washing colors. Use Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder in place of water before loading the brush with paint to eliminate drag and improve flow. It helps to reduce paint skinning on the palette and is excellent for liner work, transparent washes, and wet-on-wet techniques. Cleans up with soap and water.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Liquitex products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.
