A general purpose liquid medium useful for creating glazes, extending colors, and increasing translucency. Has a unique property that promotes flow and leveling.
What Fluid Medium Can Do
Ceracolors Mediums, Gels and Pastes offer artists unlimited control of Ceracolors water-soluble wax colors. Use mediums to control transparency, viscosity and consistency. Ceracolors Mediums can be thought of as colorless wax paints, as they are composed of the same or similar waxes as are Ceracolors paints. They are the 'glue' or binder that dry to form continuous, durable films.
This section lists some typical uses of Fluid Medium, but it is not intended to be exhaustive. New and different ways to successfully use these products are always being discovered.
Extend Paint: Adding Fluid Medium to Ceracolors can increase transparency, as well as extend paint. Extending Ceracolors with Fluid Medium allows the paint to go further, while maintaining a much higher quality than student grade paints. Fluid Medium can be added to Ceracolors in any amount desired.
Increase Transparency: Adding Fluid Medium to paint can increase the transparency of Ceracolors.
Alter Consistency: Mixing Fluid Medium into thicker mediums, like Ceracolors Paste, will thin the paint and increase its flow. For additional body, paints can be mixed with Gel Medium. All Ceracolors mediums are compatible with the entire family of Ceracolors products.
Glue or Adhere: Fluid Medium can be used as an adhesive in collage when using materials that are porous and not water-sensitive. Other materials, such as glass, metals and plastics, should be avoided.
Make Paint: Fluid Medium can be used as a binder when creating paints from dry pigments
Add Ceracolors Fluid Medium directly to paint on the palette or in a container. Fluid Medium can be added in any amount desired.
Ceracolors Fluid Medium is composed of beeswax and other waxes from natural sources, polyterpene resin (also dervied from a natural source) and emulsifiers.
