It was only relatively recently, in the mid-20th century, that acrylic colours were developed to offer artists a new, vibrant and exciting painting alternative.

The versatility of acrylics and their immediate popularity soon led to the introduction of acrylic mediums, a range of products designed to enhance the benefits of acrylics and allow special effects to be achieved.

Shimmering Colours (Interference Mediums)
Available in six colours: Shimmering Gold, Copper, Violet, Red, Blue and Green. Used straight from the tube and applied to a black surface they produce a magical shimmering, metallic, transparent lustre. The most dramatic effects are on black, where colour shows with electric intensity.

Glaze Medium Gloss: A white translucent cream which increases the flow and transparency of acrylic colour to facilitate the production of fine glazes which will dry to a glossy finish. Drying times will be slower and transparency and gloss will develop fully as the colour dries.


Soluble Varnish Matt:
Specially developed for the protection of acrylic works from environmental pollutants which can cause surface degradation. Sealing the surface with varnish provides a barrier film which can be cleaned or removed, but leaves the paint itself unblemished.

Soluble Varnish Gloss: Has the same properties as Matt Varnish, but provides a glossy finish.

Flow Enhancer: A colourless liquid that is added to acrylic colour to reduce its viscosity and enhance its flow. Flow Enhancer is best added directly to colour in small quantities until the desired flow characteristics are achieved.
