Mediums offer artists infinite control of changing acrylic colors. Mediums are used to create glazes, extend paints, build texture, change finishes and even work as a gluing agent for collages.
Gessos and Grounds offer artists a variety of ways to prepare substrates for acrylic paintings or other art media such as oil, alkyds, charcoal, pastels and watercolor.
Varnishes offer several advantages to artists concerned about the longevity of their artwork. These removable finishes protect against smoke, handling blemishes and dust or dirt on the surface of the painting. Secondly, varnishes offer protection from harmful rays generated from the sun. Lastly, varnishing provides the artwork with an even sheen. Gloss varnishes can intensify colors while matte or satin varnishes soften the color while minimizing glare.
