Explore a varied world of texture and sheen with these BASICS mediums and varnishes! Developed for students and artists that need dependable quality at an economical price, BASICS Mediums are mixed with acrylic paint to adjust how the paint works, feels and looks. They can be used to add texture, adjust paint flow, and alter the working properties of the color. Because they include acrylic resin, these mediums either maintain or add to the stability of the paint film. Use them alone or in combination with one another, in any amount desired. BASICS Varnishes are permanent and used to protect finished paintings.
