I have been using those little squeezy bottles of dimensional fabric paint and am finding it too expensive.Does anyone know of an acrylic medium I could add to acrylic paint to get that textural effect and also that glossy vinyl look?All help appreciated.Thanks.Kim.

Here is another
http://liquitex.com/

They have a handbook of Art Applications & Techniques for Acrylic, Gesso, Paint, Mediums and Varnishes called 'The Acrylic Book', it is free and full of all sorts of information.

The phone number in Australia is
61-3-9560-5633
or you might be able to pick it up at a local art store http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

You will find textile medium to be added to acrylic paint in both the craft section and the fine arts section of craft stores or even Wal-Mart. Folk Art or Ceramacoat makes a textile medium as well as Liquitex. The ones found in the craft section will be less expnesive.
