Liquitex Natural Sand Textured Effects Medium 237ml


What it does
- Natural sand particles add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
- Dries to a glossy, 'beach sand' finish
- Highly flexible and adhesive
- Will not chip or crack on canvas
- Gives an opaque/semi-opaque appearance - the thicker you apply the more opaque it becomes
- Can be used on its own, mixed with colour or overpainted once dry
- When mixed with acrylic colour, improves blending and gives oil-style stiffness
- Provides an excellent textured ground or underpainting medium for acrylics, pastels and graphite - great for delicate marks and blending
- Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
- Maintains colour adhesion, durability and archival quality

How to use it
- Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
- Apply with knife or brush
- Can be thinned with a small amount of distilled water if required
- Mix with different consistencies and ratios of acrylic colour/medium to create custom texture
- Start by adding very small amounts of colour and build up as needed
- Overpaint when dry with acrylic colour
- To use as a ground - apply a thin layer to surface and leave to dry
- Apply thickly for sculptural texture
- Mix with Gloss Medium to create a textured glaze
- For abstract effects, apply different colours with a knife, building layers dry or wet in wet
- Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments

How not to use it
- If varnishing, don't be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming - spray varnish will give best results
- Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
