Gel 531 Acrylic Transparentizer - Grumbacher 531 Acrylic Transparentizer Gel is a full-bodied acrylic painting medium designed to increase the transparency of semi-transparent and transparent acrylic colors while maintaining the consistency of tube colors. It's ideal for creating transparent impasto effects and textured glazes. Mix it directly with acrylic paints or use it alone for transparent surface effects. It dries absolutely clear.

Acrylic Matte Medium & Varnish - Excellent for mixed media applications, the acrylic gloss medium and varnish has myriad uses. Traditionally this medium is mixed with acrylic paint for smoother brush strokes and a uniform gloss finish, or as a final gloss varnish. This medium thins with water and can also be used for glazing, as an adhesive, in thick applications in molds or armatures for a flexible, plastic-like effect, and in papier mache projects. This is the ideal primer for oil painting on vellum. Dries clear, is flexible and water resistant when dry.  Made in the USA.

Acrylic Medium Gesso - Non-yellowing, ready-to-use, prepared painting ground made with acrylic emulsion and Titanium White. Dries rapidly. Application to any clean, nonoily surface can be made with a brush, knife or roller. Accepts oil colors, acrylic colors, pastels, charcoal, pencil, and crayons and is specially formulated to have both tooth and absorbency.

Acrylic Medium Modeling Paste - A ready-to-use paste made with acrylic emulsion and ground marble. Has excellent adhesive qualities. Can be shaped and textured when wet; cut, carved and sanded when dry. Dries rapidly, becoming hard, resilient, durable and water resistant.

Acrylic Retarder - A colorless acrylic medium that slows drying time. Can be mixed into acrylic paint or brushed directly onto the support and painted over. Ideal for detailed blending work.  Made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly versatile product So happy that I purchased this medium from Jerry's because it came when promised, and was very carefully packaged. It was exactly as described when I browsed the catalog for like or similar items. Each individual jar of the product is carefully wrapped in a sealed plastic bag before placing it into a carton lined with bubble wrap. Lots of care goes into this packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased to protect a painting I had finished. When on smooth and dried nice. Painted this in a class on colors. When finished the teacher recommended protecting it. I am glad I did. It does pop colors. When on smooth and dried nicely, My next painting I will use as I paint to give a different. I paint for stress release and fun.
