Build flexible, high gloss, bubbly effects with this thick acrylic texture gel.

What it does

  • Glass microspheres add shimmering structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
  • Dries to a reflective, undulating finish, for a bubble-like effect
  • Highly flexible and adhesive
  • Will not chip or crack on canvas
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or overpainted with acrylics or oils once dry
  • Apply thickly to create dramatic 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
  • Provides an undulating ground for acrylics and oils
  • 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 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/oil 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 dramatic reflective effects, mix with transparent/semi-opaque colors or apply 'neat' over dried paint
  • For reflective textured glazes, mix with Gloss Medium and small amounts of Soft Body
  • 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
