Matisse Fluid Acrylic 36ml

Matisse Fluid Acrylic 36ml

Matisse Fluid Acrylics are highly pigmented, liquid like paint. Each colour has an ASTM rating of I or II indicating very good lightfastness to excellent lightfastness. Matisse Fluid Acrylics have a very smooth, runny but slightly dense viscosity. Being highly pigmented, the colours will appear dark and intense on initial application but can be spread easily with a brush or mixed with water to reveal the colour graduation. The intensity of the colours makes Matisse Fluid Acrylic ideal for tints and can create colour wash effects similar to watercolour but with the permanence of an acrylic paint.

Matisse Fluid is compatible with Matisse Structure and Matisse Flow formula paint and can be blended together or used by itself on the same artwork.

Matisse Open Medium MM31

Matisse Open Medium MM31

Matisse Open Medium MM31

Open Medium is formulated to be mixed with either Matisse Structure or Matisse Flow acrylic colours to assist in prolonging drying time while maintaining the consistency of the paint. When mixed with Matisse Structure, they will retain their impasto quality, while Matisse Flow Acrylics will keep their smooth flowing feel with added body but not viscosity.

Optimal for painting outdoors or in particularly hot weather, MM31 Open Medium allows the paint to be blended on the painting surface for longer. Artists will be delighted with the way this medium makes their paint handle, so smooth and buttery. Be surprised by the glowing satin finish that this medium imparts to the paints.

As little as 10% MM31 Open Medium to the paint, will lengthen the working time, allowing satisfying, smooth blends.

Matisse Spreader Medium 250ml

Matisse Spreader Medium 250ml

Matisse Spreader Medium can be added to Matisse acrylic colours to achieve washes and glazes and increases the spreadability and lubrication of the paint.

The purpose of Spreader Medium is to spread large volumes of colour over selected areas while maintaining a controlled paint viscosity. Spreader Medium is a transparent flowing paste which dries fairly “flat” and, when dry, can hardly be discerned on a painted or unpainted area, i.e. it leaves almost no stain.

As Spreader Medium dries relatively slowly when applied over a well-primed or heavily painted area, it increases workability within the paint.

Also known as Matisse Medium 8 (MM8)

Matisse Drying Retarder MM1

Matisse Drying Retarder MM1

Slow the drying time of your acrylic paints by using the Matisse Drying Retarder medium.

Additions of MM1 Drying Retarder may be used in watercolouring, water wash effects, stain painting and hard edge techniques where it assists in pigment wetting, rapid colour diffusion and penetration. On raw canvas, the addition of 3-5% MM1 Drying Retarder, pre-diluted with water, will improve the mixing of inorganic pigments, oxides, earth colours, titanium dioxide and metallic pigments.

MM1 Drying Retarder will slow the evaporation of water from the paint. However, excess amounts of MM1 Drying Retarder (over 10%) will severely slow “cross linking” of the acrylic. Therefore, even though the paint may look dry (and indeed all the water will have gone from the paint), it will not have “cross linked” or “cured” so it is able to be re-wet, i.e. with a wet brush or cloth. This allows the Matisse acrylic colours to be used just like watercolours.

Matisse Impasto Medium MM2

Matisse Impasto Medium MM2

Matisse Impasto Medium MM2

Use the Matisse Impasto Medium to add to your acrylic paint to make it heavy bodied and to create thick impasto texture in your artwork. Apply with a painting/palette knife in heavy blobs for thick impasto textured finish.

Can be applied straight (without mixing) onto the canvas and painted over with Matisse Structure paint.

Matisse Impasto Medium is a heavy bodied paint that is free from colour pigmentation. It is most valuable for replicating oil painting brush strokes, particularly where heavy built up areas of colour are required.

Matisse Impasto Medium dries to a low sheen, which is similar to the sheen on a dried paint film of acrylic paint. This medium has a milky opacity and is not suitable as a transparent glue. However, when dried, it does not alter the richness of Matisse paints.

Do not use MM2 Impasto Medium as a transparent glue or size where its slightly milky opacity could cause some “cloudiness”.
