Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. Liquitex Fluid Mediums perform much in the way that their name implies, they are fluid in nature and reduce viscosity of heavier paints and gels. They tend to self-level and do not retain brushstrokes. Liquitex Fluid Mediums modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and contain acrylic resins to maintain or enhance adhesion and durability. Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish Fluid Painting Medium is an all-purpose Liquitex medium, formulated to be mixed into all Liquitex acrylic paints and mediums. Mix into any acrylic paint to enhance the depth of color intensity, increase transparency, gloss, ease flow of paint and add flexibility and adhesion of paint film. Use as a non-removable varnish to protect painting and establish gloss sheen surface. Translucent when wet transparent (clear) when dry. Dries to a non-tacky hard flexible surface that is resistant to dirt retention. Depending upon substrate, allows moisture to pass through (breathable). Will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes. Applicable for any surface (flexible and inflexible) including canvas paper wood Plexiglas etc. Not for use over oil paint. APPLICATIONS AS A MEDIUM: AS EXTENDER: Mix with Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency while maintaining paint viscosity. Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency while decreasing paint viscosity. AS FIXATIVE: To increase gloss or shine, mix 1 part Gloss Medium & Varnish to 1 part distilled water. AS VARNISH: Gloss Varnish for flexible surfaces is recommended for acrylic paintings. Apply Gloss Medium and Varnish as a final permanent varnish over dry acrylic paint. Varnish surface and environment must be clean dry and dust free.
