Derivan‘s range of Matisse Painting Mediums are complementary products designed to make acrylic paint more versatile. They can be used with the Matisse Structure and Flow formulas, Matisse Inks and Matisse Background ranges.

Our acrylic paint technology has achieved a much higher level of specialisation in the last decade, resulting in superior quality acrylic paints and mediums that have set the current standards.

Use MM16 Faux Finish & Marbling Gel with Matisse Flow Formula Acrylic colours for a thicker and more transparent consistency. Also can be used for additional painted finishes and various marbling techniques.

For painted finish techniques, mix MM16 Faux Finish & Marbling Gel with acrylic colour and apply with a stiff brush. Very effective patterns can be created by the use of sponges, erasers, combs, squeegees, rags, stencilling brushes, plastic wraps etc.

MM16 Marbling Gel may also be used in marbling processes to keep the colours from mixing together whilst at the same time creating colour effects from opaque to transparent. This medium is also called a scumble glaze or scumble medium.

MM20 Water Based Patina is a glazing medium designed to slow the drying time of the paint but keep the binding and waterfast capacity of the paint intact, no matter how little paint is used. MM20 Water-Based Patina will allow time for the free movement of the paint and contains extra binder so that only small amounts of paint can be used (as little as 5% paint) in a glaze form whilst still remaining waterfast once dry.

A great way to antique without the hassle of oil-based mediums. MM20 Water-Based Patina only takes 4 to 6 hours to dry.

MM26 Transparent Gesso is similar to MM10 Gesso and MM25 Black Gesso only without pigmentation; therefore, giving a transparent (although not altogether clear) flexible primer for canvas, board or even paper with an excellent tooth for easy paint manipulation. If working on canvas, Matisse MM26 Transparent Gesso will tighten the canvas, making a firmer ground to paint on.

MM3 Surface Tension Breaker is a dispersant and is used to break down the surface tension of the acrylic paints.

It acts as a powerful penetrating agent. It is also known as “watercolour medium” or “flow medium”.

Used correctly, it will make Matisse paint more “runny” by increasing its flow properties. Its presence within a water and paint mixture will greatly facilitate colour penetration into absorbent paper or fabric grounds, e.g. raw canvas.

It is a very valuable additive in stain painting techniques and water wash applications when working on hand-pressed watercolour paper or absorbent, bleached but unprimed canvas.

For correct results, MM3 Surface Tension Breaker is always pre-diluted with the quantity of water to be used for thinning the paint. It is wise to prepare a stock jar of water with 5-10% MM3 Surface Tension Breaker and use this water for the overall painting.

The purpose of MM8 Spreader Medium is to spread large volumes of colour over selected areas while maintaining a controlled paint viscosity.

It is customary to add MM8 Spreader Medium to Matisse Colours until the required volume of paint is attained. Inversely, Matisse Colour can be added in small or large increments to the MM8 Spreader Medium but, because of the heavy-bodied consistency of Matisse Structure, lumping could occur and it is advisable to pre-dilute the Matisse Structure with a little water.

MM8 Spreader Medium is a transparent flowing paste. It dries fairly “flat” and, when dry, can hardly be discerned on a painted or unpainted area, i.e. it leaves almost no stain. Its main application is for glazing where it imparts fine flow and controlled spreadability and lubrication to the paint. Used on its own, the medium does not dry waterproof and can therefore be used as an intermediary between two partially dried paint films if some water-sensitivity for wash areas is desired. Applied over a dried paint film, it gives a wet upon wet effect but will recede to an almost invisible film when dry.

Matisse MM34 Brush & Hand Cleaner was created in response to requests for a gentle cleaner that can remove paint from both brushes and hands. By using MM34 you can be safe in the knowledge that you are using a product that is a naturally derived and made from replenishable natural resources and contains no hazardous toxic or polluting ingredients. It is grey water and septic tank safe, and completely biodegradable without effluent treatment processes.
