additive for increasing the viscosity of acrylic paints, acrylate thickener in water, milky white when in liquid form, colourless transparent and waterproof when dry, should be added in small quantities, working temperature: at least +10 °C; do not allow to freeze
The Amsterdam acrylic thickener increases the viscosity and the prominence of the brush stroke of acrylic paints without affecting their intensity and opaqueness. Only a small amount is necessary to make the consistency of the paint more pasty - which is why it should be used sparingly and thoroughly mixed into the paint with a palette knife. The glossiness level of acrylic paints will be slightly decreased by this additive. Amsterdam acrylic thickener is similar to gel mediums but is, in fact, not one. It has no adhesive qualities, thereby making it unsuitable for gluing materials into collages or the like. One advantage it has over gel mediums is that adding it will not change a paint´s hue but instead, even in a very small amout, will only thicken it.
