Acrylic Painting Questions and Answers

FROM THE EMAIL BAG: A recent attendee at a lecture I gave asked this..."I have one question now……..many more simmering. Right now I want to extend my paints. I bought the acrylic glazing liquid as you suggested and I love how it makes the paint so silky. Was this a product you use one to one and you will be able to keep the intensity of your colors?"

MY ANSWER: Yes, you can mix Golden's Acrylic Glazing Liquid in 50/50 ratio to thin your paint and keep it workable for a long time. If you just want to extend the paint without retarding the drying time, try Polymer Medium or Soft Gel Gloss.
