Airbrush Medium - A liquid medium incorporating an acrylic polymer. Specifically formulated to thin acrylic colors for airbrush application. Can also be used when working a regular brush.

Fabric Medium - A fluid medium incorporating an acrylic polymer with ultimate flexibility and adhesion. Enhances the workability of acrylic paint on fabric. Controls bleeding of colors thinned with water.

Flow Aid - A binder-free aqueous solution with surfactants. Use in conjunction with any acrylic medium or acrylic color when increased flow and absorption and decreased film tension and friction are required.

Iridescent Medium - A fluid medium incorporating an acrylic polymer with ultra-fine pearlescent mica pigment. Produces a range of iridescent or metallic colors when mixed into acrylic colors.

LiquiThick Thickening Gel - A binder-free heavy body gel with high levels of gelling agents. Used in small amounts, produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint. At higher concentrations, can thicken paint or acrylic mediums to "cake" or sculptural consistency.

Pouring Medium - A fluid medium incorporating an acrylic polymer with high resin solids. Creates even puddles, poured sheets, and flowing applications of color.

Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder - A binder-free fluid with slow drying agents. Increases 'open' (working) time of acrylic paint. Reduces paint skinning-over on palette. Increases blending time, making blending of colors and detail brushwork easier.

Slow-Dri Gel Retarde - A binder-free gel with slow drying agents. Designed to be used with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color and Heavy Body mediums. Increases 'open' (working) time of acrylic paint.

String Gel - A medium viscosity medium incorporating an acrylic polymer with a resinous, stringy consistency. Enhances depth of color and increases transparency and flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquitex Airbrush Medium is a must have for an acrylic painter I've been using Liquitex Airbrush Medium for more than 2 years. I use it to thin my paint, to make my paint smoother, to create layers of glaze. It does not cause underbinding because it IS acrylic. It also works as a glue for lightweight applications that will have another medium adde over the top. I couldn't paint as well without it. I used it to create the glazing effects for a mixed media painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acrylic Fluid Pouring Medium Liquitex Pouring medium, Matte Medium, Gloss Varnish Medium, Gesso and texture mediums are my very favorite products used for Acrylic fluid pours and all my mixed media art. I particularly like their consistency, which is fluid and the fact that they can all be used together to give excellent results, without worry of cracking or crazing in my fluid poured art. I have used these products for years and plan to continue using the Liquitex Acrylic Effects mediums in my future professional art.

    Texture: Fluid
    Sheen: Satin
    Relative Opacity: Transparent
    • Enhances the workability of acrylic paint on fabric. 
    • Controls bleeding of colors thinned with water. 
    • Provides a smooth, consistent flow when added to Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color. 
    • Prevents uneven application of paint to rough textured fabrics. 
    • Reduces stiffness of dried acrylic paint on fabric. 
    • Eliminates the need to scrub or abrade rough textured fabrics to enable paint to adhere or penetrate surface. 
    • Does not require heat setting. 

    Painting on Fabric:

    • Begin by adding medium 1:1 with Liquitex® Soft Body Artist Color. Test on fabric to see if you are getting good coverage without bleeding. 

    Color Blending on Fabric:

    Texture: Fluid
    Sheen: Satin
    Relative Opacity: Transparent

     

    • Use in conjunction with any acrylic medium or acrylic color when increased flow and absorption and decreased film tension and friction are important. 
    • A flow enhancer that improves the flow, absorption, and blending of any water-soluble paint (i.e. acrylic paint), medium, ink or dye. 
    • Minimizes brush marks by reducing friction of paint application. 
    • Does not contain a binder. Over thinning of acrylic paint with Liquitex Flow-AidTM and applying to a non-absorbent surface (i.e. gessoed canvas) may result in poor adhesion. Always make a test piece for your particular application and surface. 
    • On non-absorbent surfaces, will increase the fluidity and open (drying) time of the paint. 
    • On absorbent surfaces, will act as a stain, dye or watercolor. 

    Application

    • Liquitex® Paint Additives are similar to acrylic mediums in that they are mixed into acrylic paint and acrylic mediums to change consistency, thickness, transparency, sheen, drying time and absorption rate. However, they are different in that they do not contain acrylic polymer emulsion and therefore have no binding qualities inherent in them.
