Acrylic paints are fast-drying and can be diluted with water, gels and other mediums to create unique characteristics. Acrylics are water-based and become water resistant once dry. Some finished acrylic paintings when can resemble watercolour pieces or oil paintings.
Watercolour paints are made of fine pigments that are mixed with water and apply most often to paper. Watercolour paints are semi-transparent with the white of the paper used as a natural luminosity to the colour washes.
Mediums are mixed with acrylic paints to create texture, effects and finishes.
Texture Gels: Used to create a variety of textures and can add another element to your paintings.
Gesso & Grounds: Prepare your substrate the way you need it.
Gel Mediums & Acrylic Polymers: Control the consistency of your paints. Amazing tools for extending and changing the consistency of acrylic colours.
Acrylic Finishes: Formulated to minimize the presence of a brush stroke and are ideal as a final layer. They can be used for protecting your painting or giving a painting an overall sheen.
Liquid Glass: A silicone oil that aids in the production of cell-like formations in acrylic paint and used for acrylic pour techniques.
Tri-Art Re-Harvested Acrylic Mediums
Made with the environment in mind. Re-harvested particles from other manufacturing processes are used to create beautiful textural mediums. Each medium contains particles combined with a professional-grade gel medium to ensure excellent adhesion, flexibility, and clarity once dry. The mediums will appear lighter at first, but they dry clear with a gloss finish. Tint the mediums with color prior to applying them to your surface, or use the mediums as a ground and apply color over the dried medium.
