Liquitex Gel Mediums

Liquitex Acrylic Mediums are made from 100% acrylic polymer emulsion, and form durable films when dry. They have excellent flexibility and resistance to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. When added to acrylic paint, they alter the paint handling characteristics, appearance or volume to produce an infinite variety of effects. Gel mediums are ideal for extending a heavy body paint, to create impasto, relief, or sculptural effects.

Gel Medium, Gloss — A high viscosity medium, it dries to a crystal clear gloss finish for sparkling, transparent impastos and textured glazes. Translucent when wet, it is transparent to translucent when dry depending on the thickness of the application. An ideal paint extender, it increases the brilliance and transparency of color without changing paint thickness, resulting in paint similar in color depth to oil paint. Use it as an extender, a ground, or as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" high viscosity thick gloss paint.

Gel Medium, Gloss Heavy — A heavy-bodied medium of great density and extra high viscosity, Heavy Gel dries to a translucent gloss finish. It increases body, density and viscosity, attaining the consistency of oil paint with brush or palette knife marks. Extending paint while increasing brilliance and transparency, it keeps paint workable longer than other gel mediums. Use it as an extender, a ground, or a binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" extra-heavy viscosity thick gloss paint.

Gel Medium, Matte — A high viscosity medium, Matte Gel displays the same qualities as the Gel Medium, except that it dries to a satin, matte finish, and has greater adhesive abilities. Use it as an extender, as a ground, for impasto effects, or as a binder for powered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" high viscosity thick matte paint.

Gel Medium, Super Heavy Gloss — A superior adhesive for collage and mixed media projects, or create sculptural effects and high-peak consistency. Dries clear to translucent depending upon thickness, with very low shrinkage. Flexible, non-yellowing, and water-resistant when dry.

String Gel — Enhances depth of color, while increasing transparency and flow. Dries glossy and transparent with a honey-like consistency. It is also permanent, non-yellowing, flexible, and water-resistant.

Liquithick — This archival gel additive boasts a unique polymer formula that thickens acrylic paints and mediums without adding transparency. Used in small amounts, it produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint. At higher concentrations, it can thicken paint or mediums to a "cake-like," sculptural consistency. It dries to a matte sheen in anywhere from 24 hours to 7 days, depending on the amount used.

Ultra Matte Gel — Use ultra Matte Gel to extend paint up to double amounts without changing color position. Dries to a matte finish, maintaining color opacity.
