Golden Super Matte Medium is a pourable medium useful for reducing gloss. Because of its high level of matting agents, it will lower sheen of another product with a minimal addition, thereby changing other paint attributes the least, such as colour strength and viscosity. Super Matte Medium should always be blended with other acrylic paints or mediums as this product is not intended to be used by itself.
To lower the sheen of a paint colour or another medium, begin by adding Super Matte Medium in increments of about 10% of the total volume. It is helpful to brush out each mixture, and let dry on a piece of paper to note the difference in sheen. With some experimenting, it will become easier to know how much of the matte medium is required to achieve the desired gloss.
It is acceptable to add any amount of a matte medium to Golden Heavy Body.Acrylics. It can also be added to Golden Decorative Glazes, Gels and Mediums. Some caution is required with the Super Matte Medium: too much of an addition may dramatically lighten a colour, or if used alone, it may crack in thick applications. Super Matte Medium blended with Golden Fluid Acrylics allows artists to make their own colour gessoes. Some experimenting will allow an artist to understand the limitations for their manner of application.
