Regular Gels have the same viscosity as Heavy Body Acrylic Colors. Matte is non-shiny and will simulate a waxy look. The matting agent also adds opacity and a slight white tint to colours. Gels are ideal for extending paint and regulating transparency without changing consistency. Useful for impasto.
Gel Mediums offer many ways to build texture. They are used to create glazes, extend paint and change finishes. Gels are essentially colorless paint, as they utilize the same 100% acrylic polymers as acrylic paint. Gels are also excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media, they dry with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance.
Golden offer five consistencies from our most viscous High Solid Gel to our Soft Gel. Each gel is available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matte finishes.
