Liquitex Mediums and Grounds

Liquitex Pouring Medium

Liquitex Pouring Medium can be used in combination with acrylic colours to create seamless surfaces and puddles of colour.

Liquitex Black Lava Gel

Black Lava is a medium viscosity gel that contains small, flat, hexagonally shaped aggregates. These black aggregates produce a variety of unique textural, dimensional and reflective effects and can be mixed with coloured acrylic paints. When mixed with transparent and translucent colours, the black speckled quality is most apparent. While wet it looks grey but once dry, it gives the effect of ground, dry, black lava. Formulated for maximum flexibility and adhesion, it will not chip or crack. It can be applied to any material or surface that will accept traditional acrylic media, such as canvas, paper and wood. It is lightweight, non-toxic and dries to a water resistant, non-yellowing surface.
