Liquitex Professional Super Heavy Gloss Gel Medium 8oz

In stock




  • Super Heavy Gloss Gel Medium dramatically increases viscosity to create a stiff, oil paint-like consistency that holds high peaks and sculptural shape and increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency.
  • This medium extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability, slows drying time and gives minimal shrinkage, maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality, and is fully intermixable with acrylic paint.
  • Mix with Matte Gel to create a custom satin super heavy body gel
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results. 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.
  • This medium 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
  • Great to use with acrylic paints & mediums to create impasto & sculptural applications, for glazing when used with transparent colors, blending & softening edges, collaging, decoupage & mixed media, and photo transfers.
  • Lightfast & archival
  • Permanent
  • Non-yellowing
  • Flexible & non-cracking
  • Water-resistant when dry
  • 8oz
