Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish Product is lightweight and non-toxic, it dries to a non-tacky, hard, flexible surface. Intermixable with Liquitex Professional Acrylic Paint Colors and Mediums. When mixed with acrylic paint it workes as a fluid gloss medium. Available in several sizes.
I think that this 2-in-1 combo is amazing! Not only you get a great varnish, but also a fluid gloss medium that can enchase you whole painting process! What does exactly this medium do? It enhances the color depth and intensity, increases transparency, gloss, the flow of a paint, improves adhesion of paint film.

I use this product as a medium the most when I want to:
- increase transparency of a paint for special effects.
- thin the paint for a large surface coverage or painting in layers.
- glue something on a painting surface for a mixed media technique/collage.
- add gloss, depth, and shine to a paint.
As you can see, Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish is a pretty cool multipurpose product, that is actually very reasonably priced. Experiment with adding it to your paint or enjoy the gloss coat it adds when used as a varnish. Let me know if you have any questions about this product! Have fun experimenting!
