M. Graham acrylic artists’ color are made with the same devotion and craftsmanship that we use in our traditional media: small batches, quality ingredients, and the highest concentrations of color possible.
The flow and delicacy of a gouache, with colors you’d expect from oil.
The result is fine art acrylic paint with bold vitality and a creamy delicacy of touch that offers you a world of opportunity — from fine detail to broad, full-brushed applications.
Acrylic Gloss Medium
Gloss Medium is a crystal clear, water-soluble, permanent final coating for acrylic paintings that will not crack or yellow. Used as a medium, it increases transparency, flow and gloss for traditional glazing techniques.
Gloss Medium is concentrated and increases the adhesion, flexibility and durability of the paint film. It is recommended over water alone (excessive use of water as a diluent decreases the strength of the acrylic film).
To thin acrylic color, make a mixture of 50% water to medium and add to color until desired consistency is achieved.
Acrylic Matte Medium
Matte Medium contains environmentally friendly matting agents which creates a low sheen effect.
Using Matte Medium is recommended over water alone as excessive use of water as a diluent decreases the strength of the acrylic film. By adding Matte Medium to the water, it increases the adhesion, flexibility, and durability of the paint film.

We set out to make a paint Da Vinci would use. This is it.
In the tradition of the masters, M. Graham artists’ oil color is made with pure walnut oil for its brilliance, clarity, texture, and resistance to fading and yellowing. Working in small batches, we craft oil colors true to the roots of Renaissance painting: delicately free-flowing, solvent-free, and with no fillers or additives.
With the exceptionally high pigment loads in M. Graham artists’ oil colors, your work will naturally feel more alive and vibrant, imbued with rich, lustrous color for years to come.
Concentrated Walnut/Alkyd Medium thins the color, accelerates drying, enhances adhesion between layers and increases surface sheen and flexibility while remaining essentially non-yellowing. Ideally suited for alla-prima and glaze applications. Walnut/Alkyd Medium is certified nontoxic.
Our walnut/alkyd medium is designed to augment the special nature of our oil color but is also completely compatible with other artists oil colors and mediums.
Walnut oil effectively removes color from artists’ brushes and is a natural vegetable oil that does not evaporate or remove essential oils from the artists’ brushes. The addition of walnut oil to color will slow drying, enhance flow and increase sheen.
