SUPPLIERS OF THE FINEST ART MATERIALS

Painting Mediums

Trying out different painting mediums can be an inspiring process. It can be a good way to kick start any new artistic project. Painting mediums are essentially what you can add to the paint so as to change its properties in some way, for example to change how it dries or to thicken it. There is a great range of mediums here for you to explore; you will certainly be able to find the right one for your requirements, as well as being able to discover some exciting new options.

Oil Mediums

There are plenty of oil mediums here in our collection. We have a great array of oil painting oils, for example, such as poppy oil, safflower oil, walnut oil and linseed oil. You will also find some high quality turpentine options, as well as plenty of oil glazes and oil painting solvents. Some of the oil mediums in addition are water mixable; these can be great to increase the flow and reduce the consistency of your oil paints.

Acrylic Mediums

We also have a top quality selection of acrylic mediums. You can find the right gels, whether you are after gloss, semi-gloss or matte finishes. You will also be pleased to see that there are a wide range of acrylic molding pastes which can be mixed with a heavy body acrylic to create a dense paint that can be used for many forms of artistic expression. On top of that, you will find that there are plenty of other mediums which can be used to prevent your acrylic paint from drying too quickly, so as to increase your working time.

Watercolour Mediums

Let's not forget the watercolour mediums and molding pastes which are available. The modelling paste is great for three-dimensional work and structural effects. On the other hand there is also some fantastic thinning agents, which improves the adhesive qualities of airbrush colour. We also have masking fluid, including the exciting new masking pen products, which allow for precision application. Another inspiring new product to look out for is the excellent granulation spray.
