Gesso Primer. Specially developed as a ground for acrylic and oil painting with superior covering power, System3 Gesso is a reliable base for any large-scale work where primer is required, such as large paintings, scenery and murals. System3 Primer may be used on masonry, but not exterior wood surfaces.
Flow Enhancer. A colourless liquid that is added to acrylic colour to reduce its viscosity and enhance its flow. Flow Enhancer is best added directly to colour in small quantities until the desired flow characteristics are achieved.
Decoupage Medium. System3 colours can be mixed with Daler-Rowney Découpage Medium in order to give greater flexibility and increased gloss and transparency to colours. This medium is a clear gloss liquid with adhesive properties for use in collage, papier mâché and decoupage, or as a final resistant sealant for all manner craft works including stones, wood, card and paper. For stunning, vibrant colours, apply System3 colours to the treated paper or surface.
Soluble Varnish Matt. Specially developed for the protection of acrylic works from environmental pollutants which can cause surface degradation. Sealing the surface with a matt varnish provides a barrier film which can be cleaned or removed, but leaves the paint itself unblemished.

Slow drying Gel. Paint medium. Used with acrylic paint. Slows down drying time of paint. Mixed directly with paint.
Pearlecent Tinting Medium. It gives a shimmering pearlescent metallic lustre when mixed with pure acrylic colour.
Glaze Medium Gloss. A white translucent cream which increases the flow and transparency of acrylic colour to facilitate the production of fine glazes which will dry to a glossy finish. Drying times will be slower and transparency and gloss will develop fully as the colour dries.
Glaze Medium Matt. Just like Glaze Medium Gloss, but dries to the same eggshell matt finish as the pure acrylic colour.
Impasto Gel Matt. A white, translucent, heavy-bodied gel which provides a cost-effective means of covering large areas with impasto colour when mixed with pure acrylic colour. Mixtures of matt Impasto Gel with acrylic colour will dry to an eggshell matt finish. Just as with pure colour, the gel mixture will retain brush and knife marks, and have the same thick texture.
Texture Paste. A thick paste which is used to build up heavy layers of texture. It dries to a matt white finish which is ideal for painting over with acrylic colour.
Artist Gesso Primer. Gesso Primer is a unique formulation which needs no dilution. Highly adhesive, ideal for directly sealing all semi-absorbent surfaces before applying colour- both acrylics and oils. Suitable for both interior and exterior applications. It dries quickly to produce a matt white surface, with a slight tooth, which is easily sanded for highly detailed work. Is used as a ground for acrylics one coat is normally sufficient, but up to three coats may be required for oil colour.
