Liquitex Satin Medium can be mixed with acrylic paints to thin and extend colour that will then dry to a satin finish. It is also perfect for use as a collaging adhesive.
This medium imparts a satin finish which increases colour depth and transparency. When used with Heavy Body acrylics it lowers viscosity and gives the paint increased flow. Using this medium allows you to extend your colour without affecting the stability of the paint film. Your colours will maintain their adhesion, durability and archival quality. It can also be used as a non-removable varnish to protect paintings and will create a painting with a uniform satin surface sheen. It is useful in collage and mixed media work. It can be used as a glue to collage lightweight materials and can also be used to transfer printed images.
This medium is lightfast, archival, permanent, non-yellowing, flexible, non-cracking and water-resistant when dry. It is also fully intermixable with all other Liquitex acrylic products.
To use Liquitex Satin Medium follow these steps:
Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as it can cause the finish to become foggy or hazy when dry.
Do not use with any non-acrylic media.
