Liquitex Gels & Pastes

On the opposite side of the spectrum from Fluid Mediums, 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. These mediums also modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.

All Gel Mediums:
  • Add Body
  • Increase "open" time
  • Dry transparent or translucent
  • Extend the volume of paint
  • Hold brush or knife marks
  • Make an excellent archival adhesive for collage
