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.
