Golden Acrylic Fluid Mediums
Polymer Medium (Gloss)
A general purpose liquid medium useful for creating glazes, extending colors, enhancing gloss and translucency and increasing film integrity. Its unique feel is oil-like or resinous in nature, and promotes flow and leveling.
Fluid Matte Medium
Fluid Matte Medium is useful for extending colors, decreasing gloss and increasing film integrity. Particularly useful with GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics to decrease gloss while maintaining consistency.
A general purpose, pourable medium useful for extending colors, decreasing gloss and increasing film integrity. Can be used as a ground instead of gesso.
Super Loaded Matte Medium
Super Loaded Matte Medium is useful lowering sheen of glossy paints and other mediums (the least addition of medium is required). The high level of matting agents lower the sheen of other products with minimal addition to preserve color and consistency. Best when applied with acrylic paints or mediums.
Same consistency as the regular Matte Medium, but with three times more matting solids. Slightly increases opacity.
Acrylic Flow Release
Acrylic Flow Release is an additive used to reduce surface tension of the water in the acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of acrylic waterborne paints. Acrylic Flow Release is very useful for staining techniques, as it dramatically reduces the surface tension between the stain (paint/water) and the support. Certain supports, especially raw canvas, are inherently water repelling in nature and require the use of such a surface-active agent to allow the stain to wet and penetrate into the support.
