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 Fluid Retarder?
Only a few drops of Galeria Fluid Retarder needs to be added to acrylic colour, medium or gel to extend working time by up to 50%, and increase flexibility.
How do I use Winsor & Newton Galeria Fluid Retarder?
