How Do I Thicken My Medium White?

Linda writes, Darrell, I have mixed and stirred but the Magic White is still very very thin. How do I thicken it up??

Linda,

I wouldn’t necessarily thin your medium. Try the test below.

Mix the can of Magtic White thoroughly. Even if you have to take the can to a hardware store to have their paint department shake it. Often what happens is the medium separates and solids form at the bottom of the can. You’ll need to pop the lid and take a screw driver and mix that solid until it is pliable again. Than have the hardware store mix it thoroughly.

The white should be thin enough so that 4-5 drops of medium quickly drip off the tip of a fan brush handle when you pull the handle out of the medium.

Thanks.

Darrell
