Check Out This Excerpt From Acrylic Revolutions:
Acrylic appears lighter in color when wet
. The acrylic binder is naturally white when wet, but dries clear and glossy. With acrylic paints, the color will appear lighter when wet but will go to its natural color when dry. The more mediums and gels you add to a paint color, the great the difference between this lighter version when wet and its natural color when dry.
Acrylic is naturally glossy
. Matte products such as matte mediums, matte gels and matte varnishes have matting agent (a fine white powder) added to them to create their characteristic appearance. This matting agent will slightly cloud and lighten colors underneath. The thicker the application of a matte product, the more this cloudy and lightening effect will be apparent. Techniques 31, 42 and 92 describe methods that use matte products to create interesting effects. Acrylic products labeled semigloss or satin have matting agent in them as well, just less in proportion to a matte product.
