Product Description

Size: 8-Ounce

Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. Liquitex Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels tend to dry slower than thinner paint films, allowing for more workable time. Gel mediums can modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability. Liquitex gel mediums can add texture enhance color and increase transparency within your work Liquitex Matte Gel Painting Medium dries translucent with a satin/matte finish.  Viscosity and body similar to Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color.  Translucent when wet, transparent when dry. Thicker applications result in less transparent, dry medium films.  Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to obtain paint similar in color depth to oil paint.  Color mix will dry to a satin sheen. APPLICATION: AS EXTENDER: Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase translucency while maintaining paint viscosity.   Mix with Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase translucency while increasing paint viscosity.   AS GROUND: Recommended as a translucent ground (size) for acrylic paint with excellent tooth and adhesion as an alternative to gesso. Will allow some color and texture of the support to show through. Use as a substitute size for the hide glue size traditionally used for oil paintings.   To prevent Substrate Induced Discoloration (SID) wash cotton or linen canvas before use.   EXTERIOR MURALS: If the support or wall is very rough, a coat of Liquitex Matte Gel Medium should be brushed, or toweled, onto the surface prior to gesso application.  FOR IMPASTO EFFECT: Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic Color for impasto effects that dry to a matte sheen.

Bought product to utilize in the transfer of photo onto wood. Works very well, photo image can be transfered intact in full color or black & white. 16 oz container will be enough to allow many a photo transfer onto wood media.

I purchased this product just before the holiday season to use in crafting some presents. I had heard about using Gel medium to transfer LASER printed images to wood and other materials. At first it was hard to determine if this was indeed what I needed, but after a little digging I was assured that this would do the trick. It was shipped quickly, and arrived just in time for me to start my projects, which came out great thanks to the help of this product. Not to mention, I still have a TON of it left for next year!

Went on smooth. I needed to transfer a laser printer image to a piece of wood. Worked like a charm. Once all the paper was rubbed off, nothing but a beautiful picture left behind.

This product has been foolproof when it comes to transferring images onto wood. 99%+ of the image will usually come through and the colors will transfer without much or any apparent loss in quality. I have not tried this on other materials besides wood.

Naturally, I try to not get any on my hands, but it's worth noting that there are no warning labels on the jar. There's also no expiration date on the jar.
