Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium is made with acrylic resin in order to customize the paint's properties, consistency, and color. Mediums can be used to prepare your canvas, change the texture, adjust the flow, or protect your painting. Because they include acrylic resin, mediums help to maintain the stability of the paint film and can be used in any desired amount.

With just a few simple brush strokes, our Matte Medium will add a matte finish that is thinner and more transparent to your paintings, making them look more vibrant and polished. It can also be used as an adhesive for collages or applied to sculptures, carvings, and modeling providing a clear, shiny finish that will make your artwork stand out.

Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium is an acrylic medium that is combined with paint to yield a semi-gloss finish. It also works great for blending glazing or as a final varnish. The Acrylic Matte Varnish is fast drying, non-yellowing, and flexible.

How does it work?

When working with acrylics, it's often necessary to thin the paint down with water in order to achieve the desired level of flow. Acrylic Matte Medium does just that, while also increasing surface gloss, deepening color intensity and transparency, and making your colors go further. This product is also non-toxic and archival quality, meaning that it will not harm your artwork over time.

How to use the Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium

Liquitex Acrylic Matte Medium is a matte medium and varnish that is fully intermixable with all Liquitex products - Basics and Professional. Mix with Matte Fluid Medium to create a custom satin finish. Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give the best results. Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the consistency and transparency you want.

Tips that you should consider

It is not recommended to shake or vigorously brush before drying as this can result in a foggy, hazy appearance. Matte Medium should only be used with acrylic-based media
