Golden Extra Heavy Gel Gloss 236ml

GOLDEN Gel Mediums provide artists with a wide range of options for building texture in their artwork. The gel mediums are available in five consistencies, ranging from Extra Heavy Gel to Soft Gel. Each gel comes in three finishes: Gloss, Semi-Gloss, and Matte, allowing artists to choose the desired level of sheen for their artwork.

The gel mediums offer multiple functions in acrylic painting. They can be used to create glazes, which are transparent or translucent layers of color applied over a base layer. By mixing the gel mediums with acrylic paints, artists can extend the color, meaning they can create larger volumes of paint with the same hue and opacity. This allows for greater control over color consistency and economizes the use of paint.

Additionally, the gel mediums can be used to change finishes. They can transform a glossy paint into a matte or semi-gloss finish, depending on the desired effect. This versatility provides artists with options to explore different surface qualities and appearances in their artwork.

Gel mediums are essentially colorless paint, as they utilize the same 100% acrylic polymers found in acrylic paints. This means that when mixed with colors, they maintain the same high-quality and durability as acrylic paint. They act as a binder and vehicle for the pigment, resulting in consistent and long-lasting results.

In addition to their role in painting, gel mediums also serve as excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media artwork. They dry with flexibility and offer excellent resistance to chemicals, water, and UV light. This ensures the longevity and stability of the artwork over time.

Extra Heavy Gels, available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss, and Matte finishes, have the thickest consistency among the gel mediums. They can be blended with colors to increase body and texture in the paint. These gels are particularly useful for creating impasto effects, holding peaks, and preserving tool marks in the paint surface.

In summary, GOLDEN Gel Mediums provide artists with a range of options to build texture and modify finishes in their artwork. They can be used to create glazes, extend paint, and change the sheen of the surface. The gel mediums are essentially colorless paint, made from 100% acrylic polymers, and offer excellent flexibility and resistance to chemicals, water, and UV light. Extra Heavy Gels, with their thick consistency, are ideal for creating texture and preserving tool marks.
