Welcome to dickblick
Van Eyck Gel is a mastic-based medium that allows the artist to superimpose oil colors rapidly, even when paint is fresh, without diluting the underlying coats.
It fixes brush strokes, giving them a varnished, enamel finish. It also increases gloss, transparency and depth of color.
Van Eyck Gel is also suitable for glazing and modeling.
It comes in 40 ml (1.35 oz) jars.

A useful medium for impasto/alla prima
from Tucson AZ
Comments about Sennelier Van Eyck Gel:
This medium is very useful in experienced hands, for Alla Prima work. Not really good for glazing. A tiny amount added into paint will improve flow at first but the paint film will stiffen up quickly, if you are painting wet on wet this is useful as it limits blending and you can do fine detail work on still wet layers. the stiffened paint s tacky and has a nice tooth to it so it grabs paint and gives a nice rough stroke. The film dries relatively fast to a tough flexible skin. Once dry it accepts fresh paint well. I would not use this medium to lay down a couch before painting or for glazing. I would say it's a useful medium in the hands of an experienced painter but I wouldn't recommend it for the student.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
