The Matisse Acrylic thickner medium actually chemically thickens the paint. It is a rheology modifier, that changes the flow and viscosity of the paint. Use as an alternative to gels and impasto to add a thicker bulk to a paint mix. As a general rule 2-3 % should be enough to thicken the paint any more than 5-7% (depending on the original viscosity) will not continue to thicken the paint but possibly start to thin it down again. The thickness of application of this product will determine the length of drying time. For a thin coat, a standard estimation is 48hrs, but prevailing atmospheric conditions upon application may influence drying time (humidity, heat, cold, etc.). WARNING do not force dry or use in temperatures above 30℃ as premature skinning may occur trapping water in the coating resulting in an opaque or cloudy finish.
