Derivan's range of Matisse painting mediums make the already flexible Matisse Structure and Flow Formulas even more versatile. See below for a summary of each product in the Matisse Mediums range. Or, click on the medium's name for detailed instructions and tips for that medium.

Our acrylic paint technology has achieved a much higher level of specialisation in the last decade, resulting in superior quality acrylic paints and mediums that have set the current standards.

Note: Oil-Based Antiquing Medium, Pre Antiquing Medium, and Water-Based Cracking Medium are all now part of the Derivan Medium Range.
