    I use Artist's Acrylic Matte Medium as an adhesive, to attach collage pieces to a base sheet. Utrecht brand is strong enough to hold my heaviest papers together - no other brand works as well. I am happiest with the surface that results when I apply the medium to both sides of the paper I am attaching, scrape off the excess, and sponge off the excess from that. I haven't seen significant fading in pieces that have been hanging for several years, so I think the medium provides some protection, as well.

  • Utrech matte medium is greta for collage

    I've been using Utrecht's matte medium for many years for my collage projects. I add a little bit of water to make it easier to use. It's perfect for gluing decorative art papers like rice paper, lokta, banana leaf, mango leaf, etc. I use heavier glues for thicker papers, but for thinner papers, this stuff is awesome! I've tried other brands and gel mediums, but I always come back to this. Great product!

  • Utrecht Matte Medium Gallon

    Reviewed on 6/11/2012

    The Utrecht gallon bucket arrived with the lid heavily taped to prevent accidental opening in transit. I appreciate that! The Utrecht matte medium is describe on their site as *medium bodied*, but I found their acrylic matte medium to be thick. Just right, but thick. Much thicker than other brands. Superb quality. Also, I researched online and the Utrecht gallon of matte medium was significantly lower in price than other suppliers of other brands of matte medium.
