Mediums and additives for Acrylic painting

Slow Medium 250ml - Atelier Acrylic

Slow Medium 250ml - Atelier Acrylic



Ref: ATM72700

Is the most useful medium for extending drying time. Very useful when painting large works because it gives an artist time to work without the paint drying too fast. It also allows thinly applied paint to remain workable. Even paint which feels dry to the touch can be reactivated with water for reblending techniques. Especially recommended for anyone who has trouble getting used to using the water spray.
