Mediums & Varnishes

Mediums & Varnishes 

Mediums can be a very important tool when painting, affecting many elements of the performance of a particular paint. A variety of painting styles can benefit from the use of mediums, but perhaps the most common is oil painting. Oil paint mediums are an important part of the oil painting process. Depending on the item you use, the right medium can alter drying time to achieve either a slow drying time or a faster one. Mediums can also manipulate consistency and the finish of a painting. We carry a wide range of mediums including oils such as Linseed oil, varnishes, liquin, solvents, pouring mediums and more from leading brands like Winsor & Newton, Schmincke and more. 

  • Pouring Mediums

    A good pouring medium is vital to anyone interested in experimenting with acrylic pouring, as well as those who are familiar with the style. When combined with thick acrylic paints, a pouring medium transforms the paint into a smooth substance, ranging from a fine glaze to a thicker impasto and anywhere in between. Working with a pouring medium allows you to manipulate the properties of acrylics so that they can be used to pour and create vibrant and unusual works of art, while reducing crazing and cracking. Our range of Liquitex Pouring Medium is suitable for use with any acrylic paint and is available in three sizes.
