Liquitex Satin Medium gives acrylic paint a satin sheen finish, while increasing color saturation and brightness. Use it to lower the viscosity of heavier body paint and increase its flow, or to extend the volume of more fluid paint without affecting acrylic stability. The more you add, the thinner and more transparent color will be, so mix in until you achieve the viscosity and translucency you want. Collaging? Use it direct from the bottle as a lightweight glue. Or try it diluted in an atomizer to fix pastels or chalks.

Key Features:

  • Gives color a satin finish and increases color depth & transparency
  • Lowers viscosity of heavier body paints, giving increased flow. Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality. Use as a non-removable varnish to protect paintings and establish a satin surface sheen
  • Ideal to use as a glue when collaging with lightweight materials
  • Transfers printed images

How to Use:

  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the viscosity and transparency you want - the more you add, the thinner and more transparent your color will become. If bubbles appear when stirring, leave to sit while they rise and disappear
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results
  • This is semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry
  • To fix pastel, graphite or chalk, mix 1 part medium to 1 part distilled water and apply with an atomizer or airbrush
  • Apply with a brush/sponge as a lightweight collaging glue
