As an all purpose Liquitex medium, the fluid Gloss Medium and Varnish is designed to be mixed into all Liquitex acrylics paints and mediums. It will enhance the depth of color intensity, increase transparency, gloss, ease the flow of paints and it will add flexibility and adhesion of the paint film.
When used as a non-removable varnish, this highly versatile medium protects paintings and establishes a gloss sheen surface. It is translucent when wet and dries completely transparent to a non-tacky, hard yet flexible surface that is resistant to dirt retention.
Gloss Medium and Varnish will not crack as a surface expands and contracts during any temperature and humidity changes. It works with any surface, flexible or inflexible, including canvas, paper, wood, Plexiglas, etc. However, it is not intended for use over oil paint.
Use this medium as a volume and transparency extender, a fixative increasing gloss and shine, a binder/adhesive for powdered pigments and collage work, a transparent ground for acrylics instead of gesso, and as a final permanent varnish.
Available in 8 oz., 16 oz., 32 oz., and 128 oz.
