Slow Medium: Atelier Slow Medium slows down the drying time when added to Atelier Interactive Acrylic paint. You can thin the viscosity of your Interactive paint while also giving yourself more time to work. Ideal for larger paintings. It tacks up quickly, but it can easily be brought back to a more fluid stage by spraying with water.

Thick Slow Medium: has a gel-like consistency that is useful when artists want to have more blending time but do not want a thinner paint. You can use Thick Slow Medium for spreading and diluting paint without making it thin or runny. The concentrated medium is best used in small amounts. Just add to your palette when you want to maximize viscosity, and keep your Atelier Interactive Acrylic paints open for an extended period.

Modeling Compound: gives the sharpest textural effects. You can mix the compound with paint, but it is usually used alone to create a textured background. Modeling Compound can be applied at any stage of the process when the artist decides to add texture.

Impasto Gel: A thick, water-based, glossy acrylic gel medium designed to create texture in acrylic painting. Impasto Gel creates a more translucent and buttery paint and increases gloss levels. It can also be used as an adhesive to bond other materials to the painting.

*Note that Modeling Compound and Impasto Gel use conventional fast-drying technology, but they can take quite some time to dry when they are applied thickly.

Clear Painting Medium: is one of the most popular mediums in acrylic painting. It is used with the paint to dilute the viscosity and blend colors without losing pigment intensity. This mid-viscosity medium allows paint to spread over a surface for more blendable gradations of color.

Retarder: slows down the drying process when added to acrylics and mediums. Retarder is particularly useful when painting wet-over-wet or wet-over-dry techniques. About 10% addition to any of the three mediums above can be useful for painting outdoors or in very dry conditions.
