GOLDEN Gel Mediums offer many ways to build texture. There are five consistencies, from our most viscous Extra Heavy Gel to least viscous, Soft Gel. Each gel is available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matte finishes. They can be used to create glazes, extend paint and change finishes. GOLDEN Gels are essentially colorless paint, as they utilize the same 100% acrylic polymers as acrylic paint. Gels are also excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media, drying with excellent flexibility and with chemical, water and UV resistance.
