Liquitex Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels also add "open time" as they tend to dry slower than thinner paint films. Gel Mediums can modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.

The product of over 50 years experience in high quality acrylic paint and art supplies, Liquitex Gel Mediums can add texture, enhance color and increase transparency within your work.

Gloss Gel - Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is excellent for retaining brush marks while slowing the drying time and adding body to the paint. Mix with transparent colors for impasto glazes of great depth and brilliance. Excellent for transferring printed images.

Gloss Heavy Gel - Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium is a very thick gel medium that extends working time and increases brilliance and transparency. Mix with acrylic paint to increase body and attain oil paint like consistency that holds brush or palette knife marks.

Liquithick Thickening Gel - A thickening gel for water soluble acrylic paint and mediums. Used in small amounts, produces handling characteristics very close to that of oil or encaustic paint. At higher concentrations, can thicken paint or mediums to "cake" or sculptural consistency. Drying time will be between 24 hours to 7 days depending upon amount added to paint or medium. Liquithick produces a matte surface sheen when dry.

Matte Gel - Liquitex Matte Gel Medium is thick gel that imparts a translucent matte sheen when dry. Ideal for creating collages with heavier objects. Combine with Gloss Gel to create a customized satin finish.

Super Heavy Gel - Liquitex Super Heavy Gel is a super thick gel with high surface drag used to create a stiff oil-like feel. Ideal for creating high peaks and sculptural applications that hold shape when dry, with minimal shrinkage. This gel medium keeps paint workable longer than most other gel mediums. Available in Gloss or Matte

Slow-Dri Blending Gel - Liquitex Slow-Dri Blending Gel is a heavy body gel used to extend the "open" time of acrylics by more than 40% for easier blending. Add up to 50% without jeopardizing the strength of the paint film to achieve excellent impasto techniques.

String Gel - Liquitex String Gel is a self leveling gel with honey-like consistency. Gently pouring yields a long, constant-flowing string of gel. Mix with acrylic color for interesting application affects, to enhance depth of color, and to increase transparency and flow. Mixed with acrylic color and brushed, color follows the brush creating long streaking effects.

Ultra Matte Gel - Liquitex Ultra Matte Gel is a gel with high resin solids that dries to a matte finish. Maintains color opacity and extends paint to double amounts without changing color position. This product is meant to be used with opaque colors where transparency is not desired. Dries to a dead matte finish with absolutely no level of sheen.
