Welcome to dickblick
Liquitex Texture Gels are of medium viscosity, and contain specific aggregates, which produce a variety of unique textural, dimensional, and reflective effects when mixed with acrylics. They can be intermixed to increase possible texture variety.
This black speckled gel contains small, flat hexagonal shaped dark aggregates. Gel appears gray when wet, but gives the effect of ground, dry, black lava when dry. The black, textured quality of this gel is most apparent when it is mixed with transparent or translucent colors.
A thick, fibrous gel that when dry gives the effect of flexible fibers with a matte sheen. Great for adding texture and body, it holds unusual peaks and knife strokes when mixed with color. Works best when applied with a palette knife or trowel.
This fine textured gel is thick and low luster, drying to a light gray matte finish. Use it to produce thick three-dimensional effects, as well as for thinly coating surfaces. It provides an excellent ground for acrylic and oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, pastels, and graphite. Ceramic Stucco gel is somewhat susceptible to abrasion, so added protection can be provided by coating with Liquitex varnishes, applied carefully to avoid foaming and clouding. Works well with brush application.
This medium body gel contains clear, round aggregates that dry to a semi-gloss, reflective surface that appears "bubbly." It yields its most dramatic effects when mixed with transparent or translucent colors. It can also be applied over dry paint. For reflective textural glazes, mix with Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish and small amounts of Liquitex Medium Viscosity Concentrated Artist Color. This gel is suitable as a ground for acrylic and oil paints, and works well with brush application.
Natural Sand Fine
This is a finely textured gel that dries to a surface similar to glossy beach sand. It can be mixed with colors to improve blending and impart the feel of oils, and is also a very effective ground for acrylic and oil paints, oil pastel and graphite.
Resin Sand Coarse
This is a thick, coarse, texture gel that contains aggregates of various sizes. It dries to a rough cement look and will retain its texture when mixed with paint. Also an excellent ground for acrylic and oil paint.
White Opaque Flakes
This heavy body, coarse gel contains irregular sized and shaped opaque flakes. This white flake texture is most apparent when mixed with transparent colors or small amounts of opaque colors.

Great texture medium
from Mountain View, CA
Comments about Liquitex Texture Gels:
I love to work in acrylics on textured surfaces and I use many different gel mediums and pastes with additives. This is my first time using Black Lava Gel and so far I love it. I will introduce it to the students in my mixed media class and for sure we will have lots of fun experimenting with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Liquitex is the best product out there!
I always use Liquitex...never lets me down.
Great Value for Different Textures
You can't go wrong with Liquitex Texture Gels. I use them to create different texture in my paintings, and I often mix it with Winsor and Newton Galleria level acrylic paint. I like my results and I'm sure you will too if you're into textures :)
