Tips for using acrylic mediums

Mediums can transform your acrylic artwork. Check out our three tips for using them, including experiments to try and pitfalls to avoid.

Choose & combine different types of mediums


Gesso protects your surfaces and provide a controlled absorption for acrylic painting. A thorough foundation contributes to a long-lasting artwork.


Acrylic mediums enrich the paint with properties such as gloss, flow, transparency and volume without compromising the integrity of the paint film.


Additives allow you to change chemical processing of colours, e.g. flow or drying time. As additives do not contain any binder, no more than 25% by volume may be added to your paints.

Pastes + Gels

Pastes and gels add sculptural value to your artwork. Also suitable for embedding materials as these products have an adhesive effect.


Sealing with a varnish as final step for thoroughly dried artworks, to protect it from the build up of dirt and grease, and the passage of time. Available in different finishes.
