Acrylic Mediums

Matisse artists painting mediums make the very versatile Matisse Structure and Flow Formulas even more versatile. Each medium and some of its uses are detailed in the following pages. Use MM2 Impasto Medium for structure and MM4 Gel Medium for brilliant high gloss glazes. Use MM5 Matt Medium or MM7 Polymer Gloss Varnish for adjusting surface sheen.

Acrylics & Oils

Acrylics can be painted under oil paints but not over the top of them, and acrylics should not be mixed with oil paints. If you want your acrylics to behave more like oils, you may be interested in Matisse MM31 Open Medium.
