All mediums come individually in 50ml & 250ml jars.
Perfect for ultra high build texture on large canvasses, Microspheres can be used to make a modelling paste for this purpose without adding weight. Almost weight-free, these tiny hollow spheres appear like a fine white powder. Microspheres, also known as microballoons, are inorganic as they are made from synthetic glass. Although large amounts can be added to make a thick paste, because Microspheres do not displace the binder, care should be taken not to make the mix too dry. Artists will find Microspheres irresistible, as they are extremely versatile for three-dimensional effects. When used in smaller quantities they are able to create subtle textural effects similar to bisque. Use with MM2 Impasto Medium, MM4 Gel Medium, MM6 Polymer Matt Varnish (water-based), MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium, MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish (water-based) or MM30 Matt Gel Medium. Only mix as much as needed for a single session as mixture will continue to thicken on standing. Oil painters can mix Microspheres with their favourite appropriate oil painting mediums, however it is recommended that testing should always be done before the medium is used on artwork.
