Liquitex Professional Heavy Gel Medium Gloss 8oz

In stock




  • Heavy Gel Medium increases viscosity to create an oil paint-like consistency that holds knife and brush marks.
  • When dry this gel medium is lightfast & archival, permanent, non-yellowing, flexible, crack resistant, and water-resistant. It also increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency.
  • Extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability. Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to increase viscosity and transparency - the more you add, the more transparent your color will become without loosing the finish or integrity of the binder.
  • Slows drying time
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
  • Can be mixed with matte gels to create a custom satin heavy body gel
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results.
  • This gel is semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry - when used very thickly it may dry semi-opaque
  • Apply with a brush as a collaging glue and fixative
  • Do not vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry and do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
  • Best used with acrylic paints & mediums, and used on acrylic-friendly surfaces
  • Great for different techniques such as working impasto, glazing when used with transparent colors, blending & softening edges, collaging, decoupage & mixed media, and photo transfers
  • 8oz
