Light Modelling Paste Medium
Thick paste allows the creation of coatings and relief. It holds tool marks and keeps a perfect imprint of the created relief, while offering great suppleness to the film. It can be applied as it is or tinted by pre-mixing Sennelier acrylic colours. When mixed, the original tone of the Sennelier acrylic colour will be slightly lighter. When drying, it produces a fine granular off-white surface which can be painted, sanded, or sculpted. Water soluble. Dries rapidly. Water resistant when dry.
Gloss & Medium
The medium and gloss varnish is universal and has two functions. It can be used as a varnish and/or fluid gloss medium. It gives the paint film a better grip and increases the colour depth, intensity and brightness. It can also be used as a permanent varnish to protect the painted area and to reach an even glow.
Gloss Gel Medium
With a similar texture to Sennelier extra-fine acrylic, it improves transparency, depth, brightness of the colour. It can be added in any proportion to the paint. It can be mixed with matte gel medium to obtain satin effects. Water soluble. Dried rapidly. Transparent and water resistant when dry, it will not crack.
This white universal primer providing good coverage can be applied to non-oily painting surfaces: canvas, paper, wood…For canvases, a sizing coat is necessary before application of the gesso primer. It can be used as it is or diluted in water (80-90% gesso with 20 or 10% water according to the consistency desired). It can be applied s it is tinted by pre-mixing it with Sennelier acrylic colours. It penetrates the surface and allowed good paint adhesion. Sennelier gesso is suitable for many techniques: acrylic, oil, watercolour, tempura, egg tempura, casein, gouache…For acrylic, one layer is sufficient, for oil, two layers are recommended. Dries rapidly.
Paint Binding Medium
Glossy and transparent product. The acrylic binder medium is soluble in water and irreversible once dry. Creates a satin to glossy finish depending on the percentage of acrylic resin used. When mixed with pigment, the better is the water-resistance of the acrylic paint once dry. It is possible to add glycerine to slow down the drying process.
