ATELIER POURING MEDIUM

A SPECIAL EFFECTS MEDIUM FOR POURING TECHNIQUES

Pouring is a fantastic new acrylic technique and now with Atelier Pouring Medium it’s even easier and more fun!

Simply mix it with Atelier Interactive, Free Flow or any artists’ acrylic paint and pour onto a flat painting surface. the medium thins the paint so it pours easily and forms smooth even puddles with no bubbles! It increases colour transparency which enhances paint layering effects and dries to a beautiful gloss finish. When dried, the paint film is flexible, waterproof and durable. The medium appears white but it goes clear when mixed with the paint. So it does not effect the colour and there is minimal colour shift as the paint dries.

“Acrylic Skins” can be created by pouring onto plastic sheets like glad wrap or plastic ring binder sleeves. Once the paint layer has dried, it can be peeled off and used for collage.

QUICK TIPS

  • Stir slowly when mixing with the paint so as to avoid creating bubbles.
  • The results from pouring techniques are heavily influenced by the painting surface, so always prepare your substrate properly with gesso or binder medium.
  • To remove little bubbles spray a light mist of Atelier Unlocking Formula onto the wet surface. This will break the tension  and remove the bubbles.

ATELIER UNIVERSAL MEDIUM

Atelier new Universal Medium is a medium and varnish rolled into one. It is so versatile that is almost replaces every medium that we have on offer. If you’re looking to try a medium to see how it enhances your painting possibilities then Universal Medium is our recommendation. There are too many mediums on offer for use with acrylics. This medium does nearly all of the techniques that you could need if you are painting in fast quick layers, however if you want Heavy Impasto you will still need to use Heavy Gel or Moulding paste. Decant some of the concentrate into a small container that you can dip your brush into. You will like the feel of the paint when the medium is added to it and you will notice that it allows you to blend and feather edges very effectively because the medium is not sticky on the brush. Small additions to thick paint will loosen the consistency while more medium creates a very attractive glazing or layering mixture which can be over painted when touch dry. Solvent based varnish has a strong smell because of the turps, but usually looks better than a water based one and is easy to apply. The new Atelier Interactive Universal Medium/Varnish when used as a water based varnish is comparable to solvent varnish. It is very easy to apply. It gives the color saturation and enhancement of a good solvent based varnish. By adding water to the concentrate different levels of sheen can be created between low sheen and high gloss. Artists should experiment with color swatches to decide on the finishes that they prefer. Apply a seal coat one part varnish two parts water. This allows the varnish to penetrate and seal the paint layer so that a more concentrated varnish can be spread easily when the seal coat is dry. If you want a high gloss finish the full concentrate can be used over the seal coat and two or more coats can be used to exaggerate gloss as required. For a subtle finish you might decide that the seal coat is all that you need or you might apply another diluted coat to create a satin finish which is more attractive than a satin varnish containing a flatting agent. How To Apply Place your painting in a sloping position so that you can pick up the runs or dribbles. You can work back and forth while the varnish is wet because it does not catch on the brush.
