APPLICATIONS: AS GROUND: When creating a sculptural ground, be sure to use adequate pressure to force the gel into the raw canvas, to ensure proper bonding. Apply paint over the gel after the gel is dry. AS COLLAGE: Excellent adhesion for collage and decoupage.

In addition to the widest array of Professional and Student colors, Liquitex offers the broadest possible range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. We understand that mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so we’ve tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint, and Finish.
Surface preparations set the foundation for stable and permanent color applications by sealing and adding tooth to almost any painting surface. We offer five different types of prep products available to accommodate all types of work.
Within the painting category, there are several different types of products you would use besides the color itself. They are Fluid Mediums, Gel Mediums, Additives, and Texture Gels. Each of these products are explained further within this brochure. These painting mediums allow an artist to adjust the working and optical properties of the paint film to accomplish an astonishing variety of techniques and applications.
Varnishes are applied over a completed piece of work to change or unify the surface sheen and protect the painted surface from the environment and ultraviolet light.
Whether you are Prepping the surface, Painting the masterpiece, or adding the crucial Finishing touch, Liquitex offers the proper medium to achieve any desired result. Explore your possibilities even further by mixing Liquitex acrylic color with any of our mediums.
Liquitex Acrylic Mediums
All Gel Mediums:
Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels also add 'open time' as they tend to dry slower than thinner paint films. These mediums also also modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.
Gel Mediums available:
A super thick gel which retains high-peaks and crisp brush and knife strokes with very little shrinkage. This medium keeps paint workable longer than most other gel mediums and dries to a translucent matte finish.
