  • Techniques
    Magic Mix is an excellent medium for side loaded and floated colour that does not allow the paint to travel too far across the brush. For additional ‘open’ time, Retarder may be applied directly to the surface or picked up in the brush. Dress the brush in a small amount of Magic Mix. Side load the brush with colour and blend well on palette. Lay color where desired. Colour may be softened with the clean edge of the brush or stipple blended as needed.
    A barrier coat of Clear Glaze Medium is recommended prior to glazing.
    Use Magic Mix and floated colour for layering of colour glazes to create depth in a painting that mixing colours together cannot achieve. With medium and color in the brush, blend on the palette until color is transparent. Touch on design where desired to adjust temperature, color depth or apply a tinting colour. Soften with the clean edge of the brush.
    An overall transparent glaze of Magic Mix combined with colour will brighten or completely change the colour of the design elements. Transparent or semi transparent colors are recommended for glazing techniques.
    Blend Magic Mix with colour for strokework, linework and detail painting in designs. Dress the brush in Magic Mix and blend well on the palette to achieve colour transparency or proper paint consistency. The addition of Magic Mix increases the transparency and flow of the paint with the ease of quick correction.
    Allow to dry before application of additional layers. A hair dryer may be used to speed surface drying. Magic Mix may be used as a very light sealer. For added protection, apply a coat of undiluted Clear Glaze Medium between layers as needed and prior to varnishing.
