As An Extender:

  • Mix with Soft Body Artist Color to extend volume and increase transparency, while increasing paint viscosity.

  • Use as transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso. Allows substrate to be seen. To prevent Substrate Induced Discoloration, wash cotton or linen canvas before use. 
  • When applying Gloss Gel Medium to raw canvas, use adequate pressure to force the medium into the canvas weave to insure proper bonding between the gel and canvas.

Collage:

  • Makes and excellent glue for collage and decoupage.

Powdered Pigments:

  • Use as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" Heavy Body (thick) gloss paint or achieve unusual paint films. Pigment must be compatible with acrylic emulsion.
