Grounds are products used to prepare a surface for acrylic painting. Effective grounds should have good adhesion, be flexible, have suitable tooth for overpainting and create a good sealing barrier between the painting surface and subsequent layers of paint. Painting Mediums alter or enhance Atelier Acrylics’ unique formulations. Texture Mediums increase the surface interest and add dimension to a painting. Final Varnishes are used to protect the completed painting and to adjust the surface sheen. If your painting is too shiny or matte, you can correct the surface by choosing the appropriate varnish. For best results, apply an isolation or sealing coat prior to varnishing.
