All mediums come individually in 50ml & 250ml jars.
Glass Beads 3mm
For dazzling effects and textures, these smooth round glass beads can be used on paintings, mixed media or collage. Though eye-catching in their brightness they are particularly tough.
For best results mix with MM4 Gel Medium, or MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium to maintain the beads’ brightness. They can also be dropped into medium which has been pre-painted onto the surface. Because they are absolutely smooth it is suggested that art works using these glass beads are varnished with either MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium, or MM14 Final Varnish Gloss Finish (Turps-based) to securely seal the beads to the support.
Oil painters can mix Glass Beads with their favourite appropriate oil painting mediums, however it is recommended that testing should always be done before the medium is used on artwork. Due to the nature of oil painting mediums, some translucency may be lost. Glass beads can also be pressed lightly into wet oil paint.
