Liquitex Slow-dri Gel Retarder 237 ml

Slow drying time by 40%, without affecting colour opacity, so you can work it for longer.

Use with:

  • Acrylic paints and mediums

Use on:

  • All acrylic-friendly surfaces

Techniques

  • Large area painting where you need to keep your media workable for longer
  • Blending and softening edges

Character:

  • Lightfast and archival
  • Permanent
  • Non-yellowing
  • Flexible and non-cracking
  • Water-resistant when dry
  • Intermixable with all Liquitex materials

What it does:

  • Extends the open time of your gel colour/medium by 40% so it is blendable and workable for longer
  • Maintains the same level of transparency
  • Thickens and increases viscosity
  • Retains brush/knife marks
  • Ideal for dry and hot climates

How to use it:

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Start by adding up to 25% of Slow-dri to your colour/medium with a knife
  • Mix in slowly and thoroughly, and use
  • If you're working over a long period of time, mix into colour on the palette to keep it fresh and skin-free for longer

How not to use it:

  • As this is an additive – with no acrylic binders - do not add more than 25% to your colour/medium and do not mix with other additives. This can cause the acrylic film to break down, leaving it sticky and prone to shrinkage
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
