Acrylic Mediums 101

  • Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery 3654 Nova Scotia 366 Amherst, NS, B4H 3X9 Canada (map)

 Confused by the vast array of acrylic mediums? Unsure which to use or how to use them to get the look you want? This workshop will demystify all those seemingly identical jars of white goop, and give you a clear outline of what all these acrylic mediums can do for you so you can confidently use them in your work. Try out Golden’s huge line of gels and mediums, and learn how to use them to create texture, make luminous color, change your paint’s sheen/viscosity and extend your paints to save money. Explore an array of molding pastes and grounds, and learn how to use them to create textured, unique painting surfaces and surfaces suitable for mixed media. From the fissured Crackle Paste to the honey-like drip of the Clear Tar Gel, learn what to use to get the look you’re going for!  All materials included – including a product literature folder, handpainted color chart and samples to take home.
