What it does
  • Gives a smooth iridescent appearance
  • Increases paint transparency
  • Extends your color without affecting acrylic stability
  • Slows drying time to help you create more subtle color blends
  • Lowers the viscosity of heavier body paints
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 30% water - distilled water will give best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the iridescence and viscosity you want
  • Stir gently to avoid creating foam - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
How not to use it
  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • May temporarily lighten colors until dry
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
