Gel Painting Medium
Texture: Thick
Sheen: Glossy
Relative Opacity: Transparent
  • Dries to a gloss finish.
  • Viscosity and body similar to Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color.
  • Dries clear to translucent depending on thickness of application
  • Ideal medium to mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic Color to extend paint, increase the brilliance and transparency of color, without changing the thickness of the paint
  • Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to obtain paint similar in color depth to oil paint

Application As An Extender:

  • Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency, while maintaining paint viscosity.
  • Mix with Liquitex Soft Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency, while increasing paint viscosity.

Application As A Ground:

  • Use as transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso to allow substrate to be seen. To prevent Substrate Induced Discoloration (SID), wash cotton or linen canvas before use.
  • When applying Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium to raw canvas, use adequate pressure to force the medium into the canvas weave to insure proper bonding between the gel and canvas.

Application for Collage:

  • Excellent adhesion for collage and decoupage.

Application Using Powdered Pigments:

  • Use as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" Heavy Body (thick) gloss acrylic paint or achieve unusual paint films. Pigment must be compatible with acrylic emulsion.

Indeed a huge tub of goodness for your crafty needs!! As introduced by a few online crafters for image transfers and the only one I've used so far. It is a great product; very smooth texture and easy to apply (I use the sponge applicators/brushes). As mentioned on the container, 25% of water can be added to make the product into a slightly more liquid state but I find that it transfers the images better with the gel. Each to their own though! :o) Best online shop to get this product at a great price with the option to pick-up from their stores. Senior Art Supplies sell only the better and best art products at great prices AND they are extremely helpful online and at the store(s)! THANK YOU and keep up with the great work, everyone! :o)
