What kind of texture can I create with Basics Coarse Texture Medium?

It's a sandy texture with a range of different sized particles. You can use this spread thinly to give a rough, granular surface or thicker to create 3D shape.

They are made of acrylic and sit within an acrylic gel.

How do I apply your Basics Coarse Texture Medium?

Any way you like! We recommend starting with a flexible palette knife, as this is the easy way to spread the medium, but you can experiment with brushes, combs, cards and scrapers to get different effects.
