What it does
  • Pre-filtered and pre-reduced to thin all consistencies of acrylic paint and mediums ready for spray techniques
  • Reduces airbrush clogging and paint build-up around nozzle
  • Increases transparency
  • Makes paint behave like a watercolor, wash or stain
  • Slightly extends open time
  • Mixes well with other mediums to adjust body and handling qualities
  • Maintains acrylic stability, paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
  • Ideal for dry and hot climates
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Start by using in a 1:1 ratio with Soft Body Acrylic or Acrylic Ink, adjusting levels according to color chosen as each varies due to pigment size and and concentration
  • Airbrush nozzle size and spraying pressure will determine your ratio, so experiment to get the optimum mix
  • Stir gently until the mixture is fully blended - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • If using with Heavy Body, strain once mixed to remove any particles of undissolved color
  • Clean out immediately after use before acrylic has a chance to dry
How not to use it
  • Do not allow paint to dry in the airbrush - always wash it through with warm soapy water, a water/ammonia mixture, airbrush cleaner or alcohol
  • Do not shake
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
