Dive into a World of Paint Mediums with Our Latest Collection!

Paint mediums are essential tools for artists to achieve various effects and improve the overall quality of their artwork. A paint medium is a substance that is added to paint to modify its properties, such as viscosity, texture, drying time, and transparency.

There are a variety of painting mediums available to artists, each with its own unique set of properties.  

Some painting mediums are more opaque than others, which means they can be used to create a range of different effects in a painting. More opaque mediums can be used to create a sense of depth and dimension, while less opaque mediums can be used to create a sense of light and airiness. Mediums can also be mixed to create unique colours and textures. 

Gesso, for example, is a popular choice for priming canvases. It is also used to create textured effects and to thicken paint. Varnish is another common painting medium that can be used both to protect paintings and to create glossy finishes. Acrylic gel and pouring mediums are often used to create smooth, even surfaces and to increase the transparency of paint. Acrylic gel medium can be mixed with acrylic paints to extend colors, increase transparency, or create unique textures and effects.

Experimenting with different painting mediums is one of the best ways for artists to find their unique style. There is no right or wrong way to use a painting medium, so have fun and see what you can create! 

Pouring, Acrylic, & Gel Paint Medium

Pouring mediums, acrylic mediums, and gel mediums are essential materials used in acrylic painting.

Pouring mediums are used to create the fluid consistency needed for acrylic paint to flow smoothly on a surface, such as a canvas. They are typically made of a mixture of water, binder, and other additives. Pouring mediums also help to extend the drying time of the paint, allowing for more time to work with the colors before they dry.

Acrylic mediums, on the other hand, are used to modify the properties of acrylic paint, such as its texture, viscosity, and transparency. They can be used to thin or thicken the paint, add texture, or create a glossy or matte finish. Acrylic mediums can also be used to increase the adhesion of the paint to a surface.

Gel mediums are similar to acrylic mediums, but they have a thicker consistency. They can be used to add texture and depth to a painting, create impasto effects, or increase the transparency of the paint. Gel mediums also come in different finishes, such as glossy or matte.

With our wide selection of brands and products, you can find just what you're looking for in our online store. So, start your creation by choosing from our collection of acrylic paint mediums, which range from pouring to cracking mediums. Shop with Spotlight either online or in-store.
