Understanding Acrylic Mediums


We understand that acrylic mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so we’ve tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint, and Finish.

Prep
Surface preparations set the foundation for stable and permanent color applications by sealing and adding tooth to almost any painting surface. We offer different types of prep acrylic medium products to accommodate all types of work.

Paint
Within the painting category, there are several different types of acrylic medium products you would use besides the color itself to really explore your creativity. These include Fluid Mediums and Additives, Gel Mediums and Additives as well as an array of unique Effects Mediums and texture gels. These acrylic painting mediums allow an artist to adjust the working and optical properties of the paint film to accomplish an astonishing variety of techniques and applications.

Finish
Once your work is complete, you’ll want to protect it to ensure it stands the test of time. Varnishes are applied over a completed piece of work to change or unify the surface sheen and protect the painted surface from the effects of the environment and ultraviolet light.
