Product description

Style Name:Gloss Heavy Gel  |  Size:8 oz

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 Gloss Heavy Gel Painting Medium is an extra heavy body medium which dries to a transparent or translucent gloss finish.  Mix with acrylic paint to increase body density, viscosity, and attain oil-paint-like consistency with brush or palette knife marks.  Extends paint while increasing brilliance and transparency.  Keeps paint workable, longer than other gel mediums. APPLICATION: IN COLLAGE: Makes an excellent glue for collage and decoupage.   AS A GROUND: Use as transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso to allow surface to be seen. To prevent Substrate Induced Discoloration (SID) wash cotton or linen canvas before use.  WITH POWDERED PIGMENTS: Use as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" extra-heavy viscosity (thick) gloss acrylic paint. Pigments must be compatible with acrylic emulsion. Visit our Liquitex Amazon Storefront for full product assortment.


From the manufacturer

Liquitex Acrylic Mediums

In addition to the widest array of Professional and Student colors, Liquitex offers the broadest possible range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. We understand that mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so we’ve tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint, and Finish.
