Painting Lesson – How to Glaze With Acrylics

Learn how to apply glazes to an acrylic painting in this lesson on indirect painting. An underpainting is created in grayscale before applying colored glazes over the top. This allows the artist to concentrate on developing the values before adding color. Glazing provides depth and complexity in the color. This approach is called indirect painting but it is also known as “The Old Master’s” approach.

Liquitex Pouring Medium

Pouring medium 8 oz.* https://goo.gl/rGWYEE
Pouring medium 1 gallon http://goo.gl/JhIrpv
Liquitex soft body paint set https://goo.gl/uemqAK
Liquitex Ink https://goo.gl/GqC9HM

0:28 Liquitex Pouring Medium dries clear.
0:30 Pouring mediums don’t craze like gloss medium would.
0:45 Pouring medium dries completely flat. It’s self-leveling.
0:51 Takes at least 12 hours to dry and clarify.
How to Mix Pouring Mediums

0:59 Step 1: Pour pouring medium into an empty squeeze bottle or container with a lid.
1:29 Step 2: Using soft body acrylic paint or liquitex inks, tint the medium.
Note: The more color added the more opaque the outcome will be.
1:59 Step 3: Cover the container tightly or bottle and shake until the mixture is well combined.
2:06 Step 4: Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes to allow bubbles to dissipate.
2:20 In use Michele mixes the pouring medium / pigment mixtures she’s already created with plain
pouring medium, directly on the surface.
Michele notes how:
2:22 The dried appearance differs from the appearance of the paint when it’s initially poured.
3:08 The colors can last for months when contained.
3:45 Mixtures with less pigment (ink or paint) will appear more transparent when dried.
3:58 Michele begins tilting the canvas in various directions, creating a multi layered effect on the
surface as the colors “slide over” one another.
4:18 You can let the surface dry and use it as you would any acrylic surface.
4:30 Remember! The colors will intensify as they dry.
