This increases flow, allowing the artist to apply areas of flat colour evenly without changing the colour strength. The increased flow is also ideal for masking applications and for flowing, gestured watercolour techniques. Flow improver is also the best medium for “staining” applications.
A gesso made from unpigmented clear resin which dries completely clear. Can also be used to make your own coloured gesso primers by the addition of acrylic colours. With a balanced absorbency and excellent tooth this gesso creates the perfect surface upon which to paint.
This thinner has been specially developed to maintain the oily feel & keeps Artisan colour open longer than water.Although water is suitable as a diluent for the colour, its speedy evaporation can make the colour thicken upon the palette much quicker than conventional oil colour would when used with turpentine. As Artisan thinner does not form an emulsion with the colour, there is less colour change than there would be with water.
Can be cleaned up with water.
Can be combined with Artisan oils to prepare mediums.
