Getting a glossy surface on acrylic paintings


FROM THE EMAIL BAG: Brian asks: "What product do you recommend for a couple of final coats for a nice gloss finish?"

Thanks for your question, Brian! I recommend a couple of coats of GAC 500 for a really good film with low tack and good clarity. See the Golden product description page here. As with all paints, gels and mediums, follow the recommended guideline for application. Allow for drying time between coats (especially in cool, damp weather) and be sure the acrylic paint layer you are putting the medium on top of is really dry.

Good luck!
