Making gradients with slow drying medium and acrylic retarder

If you want to work alla prima, also known as direct painting or wet-on-wet, using acrylic colors, you need to act quickly as acrylic paint dries quite fast. Buy yourself some extra time to create stunning color transitions, blend colors smoothly and allow yourself to work on the same area for longer using Amsterdam slow drying medium or acrylic retarder.

How to thicken acrylic paint

In this video, we show you how to thicken your acrylic paint using Amsterdam thickening medium. For a sharper, more visible brush stroke, you can add this thickening medium to your paint and create a luscious, thick consistency. You only have to add a small amount to your acrylic colors to get the desired effect. This medium does not affect the color intensity or opacity of the paint since you only need a small amount.

How to thin acrylic paint

Acrylic colors can easily be thinned using water. If, however, you use large amounts of water, only a small amount of acrylic resin will be left on your work. The pigments will not be properly protected and might smudge once the water has evaporated. It also makes the paint film thinner and more fragile, which increases the risk of damage during transportation or when being wrapped up. Very thin paint may also have trouble adhering to certain surfaces. To prevent this from happening, thin your paint using Amsterdam acrylic medium!

How to apply glazing techniques to acrylic paintings

Did you know you can use traditional glazing techniques with acrylic paint as well? Amsterdam glazing medium allows you to add those even, transparent layers to your work. This medium makes your paint smoother, easier to spread and more even (without visible brush strokes). The medium is self-leveling, so it helps you create those beautiful glazing layers to achieve an optical color mixing effect with the colors of the underlying layers. Glazing works especially well with transparent colors in the final layers of your painting. Adding a medium also makes the paint film even more elastic and flexible.

How to add volume to acrylic paint

If you’re looking for some extra volume and dimension, try mixing your acrylic colors with one of the Amsterdam gel mediums. These mediums offer a sharper, pastier texture and give your work, depending on the selected gel, a glossier or more matt finish. Due to their adhesive properties, these gels also work well for different mixed media techniques. Keep in mind that these mediums contain water, so they will lose volume during the drying process when the water evaporates. These gel mediums are available in gel, heavy gel and extra heavy gel versions.
