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 Heavy Structure Gel?
