Product description

Style Name:Matte 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 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.

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.
