Liquitex Iridescent Medium is an extremely versatile medium that can be mixed with other Liquitex paints to create an infinite range of colors with a beautiful, iridescent sheen. It can also be used on its own to create stunning surface highlights on paintings and other creative projects. It is composed of acrylic resin and mica particles, which give it a brilliant sheen and a deep, three-dimensional quality.

How it works

Liquitex iridescent medium is the perfect tool to add an iridescent sheen to your paintings. By increasing transparency and extending the color, you can create more subtle color blends without affecting the stability of your acrylic paint. This medium also slows drying time, so you can take your time to create the perfect effect. Plus, Liquitex iridescent medium maintains paint adhesion, durability, and archival quality. 

How to use

Adding iridescent medium to your acrylic colors will give you more control over the intensity and type of iridescence you want to achieve. By fully intermixing it with all Liquitex products, you can create a range of effects that are easy to customize. You can also thin it with up to 30% distilled water for the most fluid consistency. Just be sure to stir gently to avoid creating foam so you don't create bubbles. If it bubbles let it sit while the bubbles rise and then disappear.

Suggested tips

When using the iridescent medium, it is important to follow a few simple tips in order to achieve the best results: 

- Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry.

- May temporarily lighten colors until dry.

- Do not use any non-acrylic media.

The iridescent medium is a water-based, acrylic medium that can be used to lighten colors and add a beautiful sheen to your artwork. When dry, the iridescent medium will not change the color of your artwork, but it will add a beautifully luminous effect. The iridescent medium can also be used as a finishing sealant over your artwork.
