Gel Mediums

GOLDEN Gel Mediums: Offer artists many ways to build texture. They range in consistency from pourable to moldable with varying degrees of sheen and transparency. They can be used to create glazes, extend paints and change finishes. Some gels incorporate pumice, glass or acrylic granules that impart unique reflective, rough or absorbent surface qualities.

Gels can be thought of as colorless paint, as they are composed of 100% acrylic polymers similar to acrylic paint. They can also act as adhesives in collage and mixed media that dry to form continuous films with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance.

Soft Gels (L-R,Gloss, Matte,  Semi-Gloss) are thinner than Heavy Body Colors. Mix with color to produce a brilliant glaze. Soft gels can be a base for wet blending and also as an adhesive for collage.

Regular Gels (L-R: Gloss,  Matte,  Semi-Gloss) have the same viscosity as Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and are ideal for extending paint and regulating transparency without changing consistency. Useful for impasto

Heavy Gels (L-R: Gloss, Matte, Semi-Gloss) are thicker than Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and may be blended with colors to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks

Extra Heavy Gels (L-R: Gloss, Matte, Semi-Gloss) are thicker than Heavy Body Acrylic Colors and may be blended with colors to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks

High Solid Gels (L-R: Gloss, Matte) are similar in body to Extra Heavy Gels. Because they contain less water and more acrylic solids, they shrink less than other gels. They blend well with colors and will retain brush strokes upon drying. Available in gloss and matte.

Pumice Gels – Used to create textured surfaces. Dries to a hard film. To increase its flexibility, mix in other GOLDEN Gels or mediums. Blends with GOLDEN Acrylic colors.

Self Leveling Clear Gel – Produces an even film with excellent clarity. Has a unique resinous, stringy consistency resulting from the leveling property. Dries to a flexible, high gloss film, which can increase the transparency and sheen, while imparting a leveling quality to other GOLDEN Acrylic products. Blends with GOLDEN Acrylic colors to produce glazes.

Clear Tar Gel – Yields a pully, tar-like feel, but in a colorless gel. Has an extremely resinous and stringy consistency. Useful for generating fine detailed lines by “dripping” it over surfaces, as it continuously flows from palette knives or other tools. Blends with all GOLDEN Acrylic colors (though Fluids work best).

Glass Bead Gel – 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

Clear Granular Gel – Used to create textured surfaces. Dries to a hard film. To increase its flexibility, mix in other GOLDEN Gels or mediums. Blends with GOLDEN Acrylic colors.

Silk Screen Fabric Gel – Blends with the GOLDEN Acrylic Paint lines to produce a silk-screen ink for heat-settable textile applications.

Gel Topcoats w/UVLS – Thick acrylic gel mediums containing Ultra Violet Light Filters and Stabilizers (UVLS) to protect materials from fading and deterioration caused by exposure to UV radiation. Gel Topcoats dry to a permanent, flexible, non-removable coating.  Available in Gloss and Semi-Gloss sheens. The Gloss version dries with great clarity and a highly reflective surface, while the Semi-Gloss dries to a translucent, more wax-like finish and like all topcoats may appear to alter color saturation. They are not intended as a commercial topcoat for high wear items.
