Accidentally bought Matt medium instead of Matt varnish to seal/protect painted figures. Is Matt medium also good as a protective coat?
I second the wise words of advice from both donald and Steve here....and give credit where it is due to 'Ochoin', for his summary is pretty much what this Matt medium is intended for....or as stated on a well-known UK art material's suppliers website against this product:
'Galeria Matt Medium will give a matt finish and also maintain the consistency of the colour whilst improving flow and transparency. Colours will remain usable slightly longer when mixed with this medium.'
I very much like the technique to create white horses described by Steve here; looks very effective indeed!
The purpose of acrylic medium is to thin acrylic paint (artists don't use water). Which means that if it weren't for the fixative in your paint, coating with medium would be more likely to remove paint than protect it.
