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.

See the Below page for a short individual summary and sizes available. Click on any medium's name for detailed instructions and tips for that medium.

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.

Oil-Based Antiquing Medium, Pre Antiquing Medium, and Water-Based Cracking Medium are all now part of the Derivan Mediums Range.
