Liquitex Liquitex Acrylic Mediums

Build flexible, high gloss, bubbly effects with this thick acrylic texture gel! Glass microspheres add shimmering structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel. Liquitex Glass beads effect is highly flexible and adhesive. It dries to a reflective, undulating finish, for a bubble-like effect and will not chip or crack on canvas. Can be used on its own, mixed with color or overpainted with acrylics or oils once dry. Apply thickly to create dramatic 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture. Provides an undulating ground for acrylics and oils and maintains color adhesion, durability and archival quality.

How to use it:
– Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
– Apply with knife or brush
– Can be thinned with small amount of distilled water if required
– Mix with different consistencies and ratios of acrylic color/medium to create custom texture
– Start by adding very small amounts of color and build up as needed
– Overpaint when dry with acrylic/oil color
– To use as a ground – apply a thin layer to surface and leave to dry
– Apply thickly for sculptural texture
– Mix with Gloss Medium to create a textured glaze
– For dramatic reflective effects, mix with transparent/semi-opaque colors or apply ‘neat’ over dried paint
– For reflective textured glazes, mix with Gloss Medium and small amounts of Soft Body
– Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments

How not to use it:
– If varnishing, don’t be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming – spray varnish will give best results
– Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
