Welcome to dickblick
This full-strength, ready-to-use, synthetic resin gel produces transparent, yet full-bodied colors. It extends expensive oil colors, prevents colors from running, retains the character of brush strokes, holds sharply defined detail, adds luminosity and brilliance to colors, and accelerates drying. Also expect a buttery brush response.
It's excellent for brush or knife to create a full range of impasto, opaque, or translucent glazed effects. Non-toxic. Furnished in 5 oz (148 ml) tube.

Great gel medium
Comments about Weber Res-N-Gel Quick Drying Extender Gel:
I paint in oils mostly using palette knife and this gel medium is just what I need to mix with my paints to create a buttery, smooth texture. It extends the paint and fortifies it for better adhesion to the painting surface. It also speeds drying and adds some glossiness to the dried paint. Depending on how much you mix in, paintings can become dry to the touch in as few as three days (it would take a week or two with no medium). Res-n-Gel has been around a long time and I have used it extensively for years.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome medium and paint extender!
from Forty Worth, TX
I use Resngel in all of my paintings. It is the best extender medium for paints, and I have been using it for about fifteen years. Two of my tubes were damaged in shipping, and Dick Blick sent out replacements immediately with no hassle.
Doesn't work for me as impasto medium.
from San Francisco
Doesn't work for me as impasto medium. After a couple of weeks thick layer ( 1/8") still very soft inside.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Almost but not quite perfect
from Los Angeles
I've used all the major alkyd mediums on the market, and here's what sets this one apart:pros: It's considerably cheaper than comparable products. It comes in a tube rather than a bottle (which allows you to keep it from drying out in by rolling up the empty portion).It has very nice brushing characteristics (flows nicely but brushstrokes stay put).It dries to a seemingly much harder and more durable film than other alkyd mediums (at lest by the criterion of my fingernail scratch test).cons: As far as I can see there's just the one, but it's a pretty big one. It dries *really* slick, especially if you use a lot of it, so I use it only for upper layers.So all in all, better than other alkyd mediums in several ways, but not the most versatile in my opinion. (That would probably be Galkyd)

the best maroget substitiute
i have been using this for 4 years. the tube lasts a long time, enhances drying time, makes great impasto, and thins paint for lucicous strokes that stay in place or blend smooth. non-toxic and no odor. i love it!

It has a stickiness that W&N's impasto medium lacks, which makes it feel more like oil paint, and not slippery like Liquin Impasto.
