In stock




  • Reduce shine, extend volume and dramatically thicken, while extending open time - or use as a strong collaging adhesive.
  • Dramatically increases viscosity to create a stiff, oil paint-like consistency that holds high peaks and sculptural shape
    Reduces surface gloss, increases color depth and transparency and extends your color further without affecting acrylic stability.
  • Great for creating impasto & sculptural applications, blending & softening edges, collaging, decoupage & mixed media. This medium also slows drying time and gives minimal shrinkage, acts as a heavy-duty collaging adhesive, helps prime rough exterior walls for gesso application before mural painting, and maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality. Mix with Gloss Gel to create a custom satin 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 create the viscosity and transparency you want - the more you add, the more transparent your color will become. Mix into Heavy Body Acrylic to extend volume and maintain viscosity. Mix into Soft Body or Acrylic Ink to extend volume and thicken

  • Lightfast & archival
  • Permanent
  • Non-yellowing
  • Flexible & non-cracking
  • Water-resistant when dry
