Acrylic Spray Medium
When to use Acrylic Spray Medium
Acrylic Spray Medium dramatically thins acrylic paints (increases their flow / reduces their viscosity) while increasing gloss and durability. Prepares normal water based paints for air-spray application.
This Acrylic Spray Medium has good adhesion to masonry surfaces, non-corrosive metals, plastics, melamine, resins, tiles, rigid rubber, most fabrics and other water based paints. It can be used with paints that are meant to be applied to any of these surface types. It does not make a paint suitable for surfaces that the paint is not meant to used on as the original paint will still be the main component of the mix. In most cases it will increase the adhesion of the original paint.
It is also suitable for thinning paint that is to be used on fabric and even on leather. If you want to use any of our paints on fabric or leather then we recommend thinning with this medium even though it is not the application that its name suggests. Leather can have numerous types of finishing treatment so preparation is very important (for leather see our document "Preparation and Priming" in the technical section of this website).
