  • Great Tool to Turn Cheap Translucent Paint to Opaque

    I ordered this because my grandson wanted to paint a pumpkin with "glo in the dark paint". I bought 2 different kinds of glow in the dark paint, but they were thin and wouldn't create a solid, opaque color. This opacifying paint did the job.

  • Unique and useful additive

    This imparts a very nice drag and buttery texture to paint and makes an excellent extender that doesn't alter the color very much. It dries clean and glossy, not chalky or dull like similar extenders or modeling pastes. It also can be used as a mild, tinting white that gives a clean tone. Really great stuff and seems to be unique to Utrecht.

  • It whitens as much as white paint

    Reviewed on 10/25/2012

    I had hoped that an "opaque medium" would *just* opaque my transparent and translucent paints. It does opaque, but it also whitens as much as adding titanium white does. So why do I need this? I can just use white paint or any modeling paste because apparently there is no escaping a white tint when opaquing. I'm disappointed.
