GESSO
CLEAR GESSO
SUPER HEAVY GESSO
COLORED GESSO
The classic white sealer and ground for absorbent surfaces, such as
canvas, paper, or wood. Provides the proper surface sizing, tooth and
absorbency for acrylic and oil paints. One coat is usually enough.
Traditional gesso is meant to be opaque titanium white for good
coverage. Two coats are recommended under oil color.
A very clear size and ground that keeps the working surface visible.
Clear Gesso provides an ideal degree of tooth for pastel, oil pastel,
graphite, and charcoal as well as an excellent ground for acrylic and
oil paints. This gesso is ideal for painting over colored or patterned
surfaces or over an under drawing. Mix with acrylic color to establish
a tinted transparent/translucent ground. Dries clear to translucent
depending on thickness. One coat is usually enough.
An innovative, impasto, titanium white gesso having the ability to hold
sculptural shape. Provides all the attributes of traditional acrylic gesso.
Ideal for thick and sculptural application with a knife or brush.
Establishes a color ground while providing all the attributes of traditional
acrylic gesso. Some artists like to start their work on a colored ground to
reflect the painting process in a different way. One coat is usually enough.
As with traditional gesso, colored gessoes also give opaque surface coverage.
PALETTE WETTING SPRAY
GLOSS MEDIUM & VARNISH
GLAZING MEDIUM
An innovative fluid acrylic resin designed to slow the drying of colors.
Spray onto your palette or directly onto the surface of a painting. This
medium improves color blending and can be used to thin color while
maintaining film integrity. Use repeatedly to prevent paint
from “skinning over.”
The workhorse of the Liquitex mediums range. Gloss Medium & Varnish
is an all-purpose medium that performs two functions. It can be used
as a varnish and/or a fluid gloss medium. It improves adhesion of paint
film and increases color depth, intensity, and gloss. It can also be used
as a non-removable varnish to protect the surface and establish an
even gloss sheen.
Use when maximum transparency is required to add luminosity and
depth to your paintings. This fluid medium can be used to create
brilliant glazes when mixed with transparent color. Glazing Medium
dries quickly for rapid layering and tends to minimize or eliminate
brush strokes. Mix with Slow-Dri® Blending Medium or Slow-Dri® Fluid
Retarder to extend the working time.
MATTE MEDIUM
ULTRA MATTE MEDIUM
SLOW-DRI ® BLENDING MEDIUM
A classic medium used to give fluidity to delicate brushwork or to
act as a low sheen adhesive for collage. This medium has a creamy
consistency and is great with opaque colors. Mix with Gloss Medium
& Varnish to create a customized satin effect.
A fluid with high resin solids that dries to a matte finish. Ultra Matte
Medium is used to maintain opacity and extend opaque colors to double
amounts, without changing the color. Ideal for large projects where
transparency is not desired. Dries to a dead matte finish with
absolutely no level of sheen.
An essential medium for creating softer edges and modeled forms.
This medium is used to extend the “open” time of acrylics by more than
40%, giving you an opportunity to really work the paint to enhance color
blending. You can add up to 50% of this medium, as it contains binder
to retain the integrity of the paint film, unlike the additives version.

MATTE GEL
A very thick gel medium that extends working time and increases
brilliance and transparency. Mix with acrylic paint to increase body and
attain oil paint like consistency that holds brush or palette knife marks.
A thick gel that imparts a translucent matte sheen when dry. Ideal for
creating collages with heavier objects. Combine with Gloss Gel to create
a customized satin finish.
BLACK NEUTRAL GRAY
A super thick gel with high surface drag used to create a stiff “oil-like”
feel. Ideal for creating high peaks and sculptural applications that hold
shape when dry, with minimal shrinkage. This medium keeps paint
workable longer than most other gel mediums.
MATTE SUPER HEAVY GEL
SLOW-DRI ® BLENDING GEL
ULTRA MATTE GEL
A super thick gel which retains high-peaks and crisp brush and knife
strokes with very little shrinkage. This medium keeps paint workable
longer than most other gel mediums and dries to a translucent
matte finish.
A gel with high resin solids that dries to a matte finish. Maintains color
opacity and extends paint to double amounts without changing color
position. This product is meant to be used with opaque colors where
transparency is not desired. Dries to a dead matte finish with absolutely
no level of sheen.
A heavy body gel used to extend the “open” time of acrylics by more
than 40% for easier blending. Add up to 50% without jeopardizing the
strength of the paint film to achieve excellent impasto techniques.
GEL MEDIUMS
MODELING PASTE
LIGHT MODELING PASTE
A very thick, matte, opaque preparation of marble dust and polymer
emulsion used to build heavy textures on rigid surfaces. This product
handles like clay and dries to a very hard stone-like surface. Can be
mixed with acrylic color or over-painted when dry. Makes an excellent
substrate for acrylic paint, oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, watercolor,
graphite, or dry pastel. Great for sculptural applications and may be
sanded, carved, or drilled when dry. For use on rigid supports.

LIQUITHICK™ THICKENING GEL
GEL ADDITIVE
GEL ADDITIVE
A fluid that slows the drying time of acrylic paints and mediums by up
to 40%. An absolutely essential additive if working in drier climates.
Mix into the paint when on the palette to slow the skinning-over of paint
and increase blending time. Should not add more than 25% as there
is no binder and it can weaken the stability of the paint film when too
much is added.
Breaks water tension to improve flow, absorbency and blending of any
water based paint, ink or dye and minimizes brush strokes. Use with
Liquitex Soft Body color to create very fluid washes without hard edges.
Great for staining effects on raw canvas. Should not add more than
25% as there is no binder and it can weaken the stability of the paint
film when too much is added.
An excellent choice when working in low humidity, or whenever increased
workability and blending time of acrylic paints and mediums is desired.
Will retain brushstrokes and add body to lower viscosity colors. Should not
add more than 25% as there is no binder and it can weaken the stability
of the paint film when too much is added.
Excellent for sculptural effects when a matt finish is desired. Gives
the handling characteristics of oil or encaustic paint when added to
water-based acrylic paints and mediums. Works great with opaque
colors as it does not increase transparency or change the position of
colors. Should not add more than 25% as there is no binder and it
can weaken the stability of the paint film when too much is added.
