Build flexible, medium-grade sandy texture with this thick acrylic effects gel.

What it does

  • Natural sand particles add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
  • Dries to a glossy, 'beach sand' finish
  • Highly flexible and adhesive
  • Will not chip or crack on canvas
  • Gives an opaque/semi-opaque appearance - the thicker you apply the more opaque it becomes
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or overpainted once dry
  • When mixed with acrylic color, improves blending and gives oil-style stiffness
  • Provides an excellent textured ground or underpainting medium for acrylics, pastels and graphite - great for delicate marks and blending
  • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
  • Maintains color adhesion, durability and archival quality

How to use it

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Apply with knife or brush
  • Can be thinned with a small amount of distilled water if required
  • Mix with different consistencies and ratios of acrylic color/medium to create custom texture
  • Start by adding very small amounts of color and build up as needed
  • Overpaint when dry with acrylic color
  • To use as a ground - apply a thin layer to surface and leave to dry
  • Apply thickly for sculptural texture
  • Mix with Gloss Medium to create a textured glaze
  • For abstract effects, apply different colors with a knife, building layers dry or wet in wet
  • Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments

How not to use it

  • If varnishing, don't be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming - spray varnish will give best results
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
