Derivan‘s range of Matisse Painting Mediums are complementary products designed to make acrylic paint more versatile. They can be used with the Matisse Structure and Flow formulas, Matisse Inks and Matisse Background ranges.
Gel Medium is perhaps the most versatile medium in the Matisse range because of its multiple effects, particularly when intermixed with other mediums.
It acts as the main intermixing medium in acrylic painting when its rich buttery consistency is required for impasto work, 3-dimensional extrapolations, multi-layer work and heavy, smooth or textural glazes. When dry, it maintains the structure, brushstrokes and textural effects of undiluted Matisse Structure colours.
Its inherent firm and buttery consistency makes it ideal for application by palette knife in order to achieve heavily textured grounds.
