Gel Medium MM4 (Matisse)

Modern paint technology has facilitated the production of a true Gel Medium. The purpose of the MM4 Gel Medium is to act as a clear transparent colour extender in the production of brilliant coloured glazes and as a transparent impasto for thick 3-dimensional brush and knife applications of Matisse Structure. Its prime requirement is to be thick and buttery whilst remaining fully transparent.

 

Matt Medium MM5 (Matisse)

This is an additive for intermixing with Matisse Colours (not a finishing varnish). Incorporation of the medium within the paint will reduce the sheen of Matisse to a very flat or low sheen finish suitable for work to be photographed. Resultant dried films of Matisse Colours will look more like tempera colours or gouache.
