Mediums & Additives

Mediums & Additives

A medium is a substance that is added to paint to change one or more of its properties.

There are six major painting media, each with specific individual characteristics: Encaustic, Tempera, Fresco, Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor

Use Examples:

  • In acrylic mediums, these mixtures can be incorporated into the pigment to lengthen its drying time, make it thicker, or change the texture. Mediums are bought in addition to paints.  
  • An acrylic paint pouring medium is a substance which is used to help improve the consistency of acrylic paints by allowing them to pour more fluidly. Essentially, mixing acrylic paint pouring medium with your acrylic paints transforms them so that you can create amazing acrylic pour art.
