Liquitex Ultra Matte Medium 237 ml

Give your paint an ultra matte, opaque finish, while thinning and extending its volume.

Use with:

  • Acrylic paints/mediums

Use on:

  • All acrylic-friendly surfaces

Techniques

  • Painting
  • Underpainting
  • Murals and large-area coverage

Character:

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

What it does:

  • Dramatically reduces surface gloss to give a dead matte finish with no sheen
  • Maintains paint opacity, colour intensity and hue
  • Economically extends opaque colour to double amounts without affecting colour or acrylic stability - perfect when underpainting or running out of colour mid way through 
  • Slows drying time to help you create more subtle colour blends
  • Lowers the viscosity of heavier body paints
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
  • Makes a weak tinting white when you add over 50% of the medium, increasing the value of your original colour by one level

How to use it:

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • The matte effect is most obvious when mixed with opaque colors
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the viscosity and transparency you want - the more you add, the thinner and more transparent your color will become
  • Stir gently to avoid creating foam - if bubbles appear, leave it to sit while the bubbles rise and disappear
  • When running out of a color mid painting, just add an equal volume of this medium to extend it further
  • This is semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry

How not to use it:

  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
