Liquitex Acrylic Mediums are made from 100% acrylic polymer emulsion and form durable films when dry. They alter the handling characteristics, appearance, or volume to produce an infinite variety of effects.
A heavy-bodied medium of great density and extra high viscosity, Heavy Gel dries to a translucent gloss finish. It increases body, density, and viscosity, attaining the consistency of oil paint with brush or palette knife marks. Extending paint while increasing brilliance and transparency, it keeps paint workable longer than other gel mediums. Use it as an extender, a ground, or a binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" extra-heavy viscosity thick gloss paint.
