Golden Acrylic Regular Gel
Golden Acrylic Regular Gel Ideal for extending paint and regulating transparency without changing the consistency of the Heavy Body colors. Useful for impasto glazing effects. They dry translucent.
Liquitex Gloss Gel
Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium dries to a gloss finish. It has a viscosity and body similar to Heavy Body Artist Color. Transparency varies from Clear to translucent when dry, depending on the thickness applied. Thicker applications will result in a less transparent film when dry. Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is an Ideal medium to mix with Heavy Body Acrylic Color to extend paint, increase the brilliance and transparency of color, without changing the thickness of the paint.
Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel
Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium gives acrylic color a high degree of drag and density, and makes it look and feel more like oil. Dries glossy, giving depth to color. Great for impasto glazes
Liquitex Matte Gel
Liquitex Matte Gel reduces gloss of tube or jar acrylics and produces heavy matte or semi-matte glazes. Excellent matte adhesive for collage and other materials, as well as for applications on canvas.
Golden Acrylic Heavy Gel
Golden Heavy Gels are thicker than Heavy Body Acrylic colors and may be blended with colors to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks. They dry translucent.
Golden Acrylic Extra-Heavy Gel
Golden Extra Heavy Gels are the thickest Golden gels and create thicker textures than Heavy Gels. Excellent for holding peaks. They dry translucent.
Golden Acrylic Clear Leveling Gel
Golden Acrylic Clear Leveling Gel (formerly Self-Leveling Clear Gel) is
the thinnest gel and is designed to produce an even film with excellent
clarity. It dries to a flexible, high gloss film while imparting a
leveling quality to other acrylic products.
Golden Acrylic Soft Gel Medium
Golden Acrylic Soft Gel Mediums are pourable gels that produce brilliant glazes when mixed with color. They can be used as a base for wet blending of color or as a glue for collage work. Soft Gel is recommended as a nonremovable isolation coat before adding removable topcoat varnishes.
Golden Acrylic Clear Tar Gel
Designed to yield a stringy, tar-like feel but in a colorless gel. Useful for generating fine detailed lines by "dripping" it over surfaces, as it continuosly flows from palette knives or other tools. It blends with all acrylic colors. Let mixtures sit before use to allow foam bubbles to rise.
Liquitex Slow-Dri Gel Blending Mediums
Liquitex Slow-Dri Blending & Painting Medium is available in both fluid and gel formulas for easy working under varying conditions. These unique formulations provide superior surface blending and increase working time by up to 40%. Any amount of medium can be mixed with acrylic color. Both forms of Slow-Dri Blending & Painting Medium are clear, flexible, non-yellowing and water-resistant when dry.
Golden Acrylic High Solids Gel
High Solid Gels are similar in body to Extra Heavy Gels. Because they contain less water and more acrylic solids, they shrink less than other gels. High Solid Gels blend well with colors and will retain brush strokes upon drying.
Golden Acrylic Glass Bead Gel
A coarse textured medium with a heavy body viscosity that holds peaks. Made with genuine glass beads, its unique visual effect like that of condensation on cold glass is best seen in thin films that allow the mono-layer of glass beads to be illuminated on a light colored ground. Glass Bead Gel can appear very similar to Coarse Pumice Gel or Clear Granular Gel when mixed with enough paint to hide the appearance of the glass beads.
Golden Acrylic Pumice Gels
Pumice Gels offer various grades of gritty textures which dry to hard films. To increase flexibility and adhesion, mix in other Gels or Mediums. Fine Pumice Gel is used to create fine, textured surfaces and is also useful as a ground for pastels. Coarse Pumice Gel and Extra Coarse Pumice Gel create more coarse granular textures to yield concrete-like finishes.
Golden Acrylic Clear Granular Gel
Made from clear acrylic granular solids, has excellent clarity and durability. Dries translucent and can be used to extend paint and add texture without altering the color.
Golden Acrylic Molding Pastes
Golden Molding Paste dries to a hard, opaque film. Although still flexible, it is more rigid than the Gels. It holds stiff peaks to create a highly textured surface.
Liquitex Modeling Paste
Extra Heavy Body and very opaque. A marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion. Used to build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms.  Dries to the hardness of stone. It can be sanded or carved when thoroughly dry.
Golden Acrylic Fiber Paste
Golden Fiber Paste creates a dry film that has the appearance of rough handmade paper. Skimming the product with a wet palette knife can make a smoother surface. When dry, it has an off-white color and is very absorbent, making it ideal for use with acrylic and watercolor washes or inks.
Golden Acrylic Crackle Paste
A water-based thick, opaque cracking material designed to develop deep fissure-like cracks as it cures. The size and extent of the crackle pattern is dependent on many factors including thickness of application and the environmental conditions during drying.
Golden Gel Topcoat with UVLS
Thick acrylic gel mediums containing ultraviolet light filters and stabilizers (UVLS) to protect materials from fading and deterioration caused by exposure to UV radiation. These gel topcoats dry to a permanent, flexible, non-removable coating. Available in a gloss finish that dries with great clarity and a highly reflective surface, and a semi-gloss finish that dries to a translucent, wax-like finish.
Golden Phosphorescent Medium
Glows in the dark. Phosphorescent Green will exhibit its glow quality only after receiving direct exposure to light.
