Product Questions and Answers

What is this used for?

- Asked by dotti on 15-Jan-14

Pearlescent medium is added to regular acrylic colors to give them a pearlescent luster.

- Answered by MisterArt on 16-Jan-14

I'm looking for clear cover coat for paint for an iridescent finish. Is the iridescent / pearlescent medium what I need or do you have something else for this purpose?

- Asked by Marlene on 30-Oct-13

The description says that it is for creating metallic effects that will not oxidize, and that it is transparent. It may work as an overglaze, although most people use it as a paint medium that is actually mixed into the paint before painting.

Customer Product Reviews

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it's thin.
Rated by: Thomas V. in Spring Hill, TN
This gives wonderful effects when mixed with paints. I especially like to use it painting rocks and water. Price and delivery were excellent.
Rated by: MM S. in El Segundo, CA
This makes any of my other Arcrylics pearlescent which makes the rainbow of Liquitex High Viscosity paints I own even more versitle. Very pleased with it.
Rated by: j g. in costa mesa, CA
This medium adds a wonderful luster to any paint color. Definately more economical than trying to purchase multiple tubes of iridescent paint. The texture is a little thin but mixes easily.
Rated by: Wayne G. in Mapleton, MN
I have used this to paint birds. It has a great sparkle that gives life to the painting.
Rated by: Crystal M. in Berkeley, CA
Great fun to play with! Add to any acrylic paint and it gives you a nice subtle sparkle!
