Slow Medium

Will allow you to explore the blending processes without having to be too aware of the wetness state of your painting. It is needed for large paintings or for very dry conditions, such as painting outdoors. It will give you a full day of wet paint blending when used in conjunction with water spray. 

The third strategy, using just paint and the water spray, seems to be more difficult for most people to master:

“Traditional” acrylic techniques are all about painting wet-over-dry and very few acrylic painters, however experienced, have much awareness of the wetness condition of their paintings. They are more used to a water sprayer or damp brush for keeping the paint on their palette useable than they are to spraying the painting itself.

Everyone who tries Atelier Interactive will be a beginner for a while as they explore its possibilities. It makes sense to use Slow Medium until you develop awareness for the wetness of your painting, because you can always bring it back to life, all day.

If you paint in sessions of about 3 hours and your paintings are small enough to be able to reach with a spray, you may find as you get more used to it that you don’t need the Slow Medium as much.

More artists are now using Interactive and we hope that we have reached the stage where most of the processes have been resolved. Information is terribly important with any unfamiliar situation. When you use the right information Interactive becomes easy to handle. Atelier Interactive does deliver on its promises, but we realise that sometimes monitoring wetness and using a spray could be a stumbling block. Using Slow Medium removes the problems by giving you more time to adjust, while using Fast Medium/Fixer gives you quick access to the “traditional” fast techniques you are used to and may want to keep.

Slow Medium increases the time frame for working the paint. Even paint which seems dry will reactivate. Click Here for a video about using slow medium to paint wet-in-wet
