I am a mixed media artist and had been looking for a medium that would give the flat, thick acrylic paints that I love so much an opaque, glossy sheen. I also wanted something that would show my brush strokes after it dried, and this product worked perfectly. I absolutely love it. I use it as a medium for water based paints as well as a glossy sealer for all types of paintings and mixed media pieces.
If you are a beginner artist and are looking to try some different mediums, I suggest you start with one of the Liquitex products. They are easy to mix with water based paints, and you don't need to use much at all, so you play around with different combinations and techniques until you find a method that works for you.
Great product and comes in several different sizes, as well as light, medium, and heavy, and matte or glossy.
