    Before applying the glazing medium, had you applied matte medium? Does it matter?

    • No I didn’t apply matte medium first. I could have, but it wasn’t necessary.

  2. Melanie

    Does it matter if the Acrylic Glazing Medium is gloss or satin? I didn’t notice that you mentioned or listed a difference in the supplies, and your bottle had both printed on it….

    • Melanie, Either one should work. There will likely be a more of a sheen to the gloss. The only thing I would be careful of is that any acrylic product that is glossy is more likely to stick together. My bottle has both because I reused the gloss bottle after it was used up because I like the nozzle. I wrote “Satin” on the bottle. I’m using Satin finish in the videos. The Gloss was the previous use.
