Description

Gel Painting Medium
Texture: Thick
Sheen: Matte
Relative Opacity: Translucent
  • Dries translucent with a satin/matte finish.
  • Viscosity and body similar to Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color.
  • Liquitex Matte Gel Medium has greater adhesion than Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium and Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium.
  • 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 an 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.

Application as a 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.

Application for Impasto Effects:

  • Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic Color for impasto effects that dry to a matte sheen.

Applications in Collage:

  • Makes and excellent glue for collage and decoupage.

Applications with Powdered Pigments:

  • Use as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" Heavy Body
