What it does
  • Turns paint into a viscous, sticky consistency so you can form strings of color
  • Dries to a 3D form with wet-look shine
  • Increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency
  • Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • For best results, mix with Soft Body Acrylic or Acrylic Ink
  • Mix with Iridescent Medium or other mediums to get different effects
  • Stir gently to mix color in evenly
  • Pour, drip or brush out to achieve different results
  • Paint over with a brush or spray to highlight the 3D texture
  • This is opaque when wet, transparent when dry
  • Add acrylic-compatible powdered pigments or aggregates to make your own effects
How not to use it
  • If varnishing, don't be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming - spray varnish will give best results
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
