Airbrush Medium FAQs

Other artists have asked us...

  • Can I use your Acrylic Ink in my airbrush? And if so, do I need to thin it?
    Yes, Acrylic Ink can be used in your airbrush. We recommend you use it with Liquitex Airbrush Medium for optimum atomisation. Always remember to clean it out immediately after use as you would with any other acrylic media.
  • My acrylic paint dries too fast. What can I do?
    We suggest you first avoid adding water to your paint and minimize heat and air flow in your painting environment. Secondly. make use of acrylic mediums to extend the color, especially Slow-Dri Fluid or Gel, Airbrush Medium or Slow-Dri Fluid or Gel Additive. All of these will extend the open time and workability of your color. Remember that only one additive should be used within a color mix as combining additives can compromise the paint film stability.
  • I’ve been given a bottle of Airbrush Medium but I don’t have an airbrush – can I do anything else with it?
    Yes! You can use it to thin all types of color, or to create excellent washes and stains of color. It also gives your paint a watercolor effect.
