Gel Mediums offer many ways to build texture. We offer five consistencies from our most viscous Extra Heavy Gel to Soft Gel. Each gel is available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matte finishes. They can be used to create glazes, extend paint and change finishes. Gels are essentially colourless paint, as they utilize the same 100% acrylic polymers as acrylic paint. Gels are also excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media, they dry with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance.

Soft Gels are thinner than Heavy Body Colors. Mix with colour to produce a brilliant glaze. Soft gels can be a base for wet blending and also as an adhesive for collage.
Regular Gels have the same viscosity as Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and are ideal for extending paint and regulating transparency without changing consistency. Useful for impasto.
Heavy Gels are thicker than Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and may be blended with colours to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks.
Extra Heavy Gels have the thickest consistency of any gel we offer and may be blended with colours to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks and tool marks.
