Clear Extender Airbrush Medium
Versatile New Product from Jacquard Expands Painting Options

Jacquard Airbrush Colors have become the go-to paints for airbrush artists working on non-traditional surfaces such as sneakers, leather and fabric. But Jacquard recognizes that a full Airbrush Colors assortment is a considerable investment that may not make sense for every retail store. For those stores, Jacquard has a new option: Clear Extender Airbrush Medium allows artists to create their own airbrush colors from any acrylic paint or pigment in the store!

Clear Extender Airbrush Medium has all the same properties as Airbrush Color: excellent adhesion, superior flexibility that resists cracking & peeling, and unsurpassed for ease of spraying.

Use it to:
  • Increase transparency of Airbrush Colors without compromising viscosity/adhesion.
  • Thin down acrylic paints for easy spraying.
  • Improve washfastness / durability of standard acrylics for fabric applications.
  • Provide a protective topcoat on any paintable surface.
  • Mix custom colors from pigments such as Pearl Ex.
