Liquitex Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency.

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.
Liquitex Acrylic Mediums
All Gel Mediums:
- Add Body
- Increase 'open' time
- Dry transparent or translucent
- Extend the volume of paint
- Hold brush or knife marks
- Make an excellent archival adhesive for collage
Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels also add 'open time' as they tend to dry slower than thinner paint films. These mediums also also modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.
Gel Mediums available:
- Gloss Gel
- Gloss Heavy Gel
- Gloss Super Heavy Gel
- Matte Gel
- Matte Super Heavy Gel
- Ultra Matte Gel
- Slow-Dri Blending Gel
- Modeling Paste
- Light Modeling Paste
