Atelier Universal Medium is a medium and a varnish rolled into one.
AS A MEDIUM: Use as a fast medium for layering. Small additions to the paint will reduce viscosity.
AS A WATER BASED VARNISH: By adding water to the medium/varnish different levels of sheen can be created between low sheen and high gloss. It is recommended that one experiments with colour swatches to decide on the finishes that they prefer before it is applied to the finished artwork, as it is non-removable.
DIRECTIONS: Apply a seal coat of one part varnish : one part water. This allows the varnish to penetrate and seal the paint layer so that a more concentrated varnish can be spread more easily when the seal coat is dry.
