• Acrylic Mediums

    Explore the possibilities

  • Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. We understand that acrylic mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so we’ve tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint, and Finish.

    prep
    Surface preparations set the foundation for stable and permanent color applications by sealing and adding tooth to almost any painting surface. We offer five different types of prep acrylic medium products to accommodate all types of work, our acrylic medium preps do not crack or yellow over time.

    paint
    Within the painting category, there are several different types of acrylic medium products you would use besides the color itself to really explore your creativity. These include Fluid Mediums and Additives, Gel Mediums and Additives as well as an array of uniqueEffects Mediums and texture gels. These acrylic painting mediums allow an artist to adjust the working and optical properties of the paint film to accomplish an astonishing variety of techniques and applications.

    finish
    Once your work is complete, you’ll want to protect it to ensure it stands the test of time. Varnishes are applied over a completed piece of work to change or unify the surface sheen and protect the painted surface from the effects of the environment and ultraviolet light.

    Whether you are PREPing the surface, PAINTing the masterpiece, or adding the crucial FINISHing touch, Liquitex offers the proper acrylic medium to achieve any desired result. Explore your possibilities even further by mixing Liquitex acrylic color with any of our acrylic mediums.
