Glazing Medium in Gloss
Glazing Medium is the ideal medium for creating smooth and luminous glazes with a gloss or matte finish. It retains very subtle brush marks. It is very thin and free-flowing with good adhesion and flexibility. Its consistency allows for veils of layered colours to be applied and to still maintain a smooth and even surface. For thinner glazes it is recommended to use with Tri-Art's Finest Quality Liquid or Ink colours and apply with a wide, soft-haired brush.
