$21.33$59.62

Spreader Medium: is used to spread large volumes of transparent colour over selected areas while maintaining a controlled paint viscosity. Acrylic colour can be added in small or large increments to the Spreader Medium.

Spreader Medium is a transparent flowing paste. It dries fairly “flat” and when dry can hardly be discerned on a painted or unpainted area, i.e. it leaves almost no stain. Its main application is for glazing where it imparts fine flow and controlled spreadability and lubrication to the paint.

Description

Spreader Medium: is used to spread large volumes of transparent colour over selected areas while maintaining a controlled paint viscosity. Acrylic colour can be added in small or large increments to the Spreader Medium.

Spreader Medium is a transparent flowing paste. It dries fairly “flat” and when dry can hardly be discerned on a painted or unpainted area. i.e. It leaves almost no stain. Its main application is for glazing where it imparts fine flow and controlled spreadability and lubrication to the paint.

Used on its own, the medium does not dry waterproof and can therefore be used as an intermediary between two partially dried paint films if some water sensitivity for wash areas is desired. Applied over a dried paint film, it gives a wet effect but will recede to an almost invisible film when dry.

As Spreader Medium dries relatively slow when applied over a well-primed or heavily painted area, it increases workability within the paint.

Soft colour hues and delicate tone on tone can be obtained by using Spreader Medium. Spreader Medium can be used to pre-dilute Derivan acrylic colours to infinity thereby increasing transparency (this may also increase water sensitivity).
