Product Description

This soft body, all purpose medium can be mixed into any acrylic paint. It enhances the depth and intensity of color, increases transparency and gloss, eases the flow of paint, and adds flexibility and adhesion. It can also be used as a varnish to protect paintings and establish a glossy surface. Translucent when wet, Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish dries to a transparent, non-tacky, flexible surface. Extremely durable, it won’t retain dirt and won’t crack from temperature and humidity changes.

Our adult education teacher introduced me to this medium in my acrylics class. I am new to this kind of painting. This product gives the my work an almost translucent, luminous quality. I love the effects I can achieve.

I am using this product for a finishing gloss over the Liquitex acrylic. Once again, the price is so great that I could buy a trusted name brand product! I just can't say enough great things about the products and service I have received from!

I was very pleased with this product, I mostly see products similar to these to seal my paintings once finished, but I am considering trying it mixed with my acrylics while painting...

I have only used this to varnish a couple of my first paintings to see how they look varnished, and I LOVE how they look. I haven't used it yet DURING the painting process.

Rated by: Kelly C. in Camden, NC
I like this varnish, it's glossy which is just what I needed. It dries quickly and is easy to clean up. Love the price, too!
Rated by: Therin B. in Buena Vista, CO
Great varnish, really brings out the colors, but it does show all imperfections. I prefer the matte varnish, unless my canvass and paint are perfectly smooth.
Rated by: Sheila M. in Denham Springs, LA
I like the way it mixes with my craft paints to give a translucent look.
Rated by: Brenda C. in Walterboro, SC
Excellent varnish, dries fast and no yellow tinge, clear when dry. Not too glossy. I've used it for years and recommend it highly
Rated by: Rosemary B. in St.George, UT
This quality product adds an incredible gloss coating to acrylic paintings and dries very quickly. The gallon container is economical. I wouldn't sell an acrylic painting without it!
