All About Adhesives - Acrylic Medium and Decoupage Adhesive

What about Acrylic Mediums and Decoupage Adhesives? Here's just a few of these kinds of adhesives that are available. Make sure to check out the manufacturer's websites by visiting the links provided. You'll learn loads of info!

Acrylic mediums can be used as a glue.  Mediums are extenders for acrylic paints, but have glue properties, too.  Acrylic mediums are water based, so they clean up with soap and water.  They begin as a milky color, but dry clear. For collage, spread it onto the substrate and also to the paper to be glued. The gloss version gives a sheen to your finished project, where the matte version dries to a satin, matte finish.
