Winsor & Newton Galeria is a collection of mediums designed to enhance the creations of artists working with acrylic paint, such as Winsor & Newton’s Galeria Acrylic Colour range. With a thick, soft sculptural consistency, the fine texture of Galeria Modelling Paste is ideal for creating depth, and structuring multiple layers.
What is a Medium?
Any liquid which changes the consistency of the paint it is mixed with may be classed as a medium. Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylic Mediums are designed specifically for use with acrylic paints, and range from thin glaze to thick impasto mediums, with a variety of choices in between.
Why use a Medium?
By changing the properties of paint, a medium extends the possibilities of how an artist works with the colour, and affords a plethora of exciting techniques and effects.
Winsor & Newton Mediums Finder provides an easy, interactive method of choosing the correct medium, for the artist to achieve the desired effect.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Galeria Modelling Paste?
All Winsor & Newton Galeria Mediums are fully intermixable, and can be layered or mixed on the palette, allowing the artist to fully explore both the textural and visual properties of Acrylic Colour. An extremely versatile medium, Galeria Modelling Paste may be added to colour* or applied directly to canvas, and overpainted when dry. A moderately dense medium, Winsor & Newton Galeria Modelling Paste can be used to minimise sagging on canvas. Pastels may be used on a canvas that has been treated with Galeria Modelling Paste, to create multi-media artwork or an entirely pastel piece.
*It should be noted that colour will become lighter and chalkier in appearance, whilst the resulting paste will have reduced body.
