Key Features
  • Thickens fluid/medium body paints, giving more prominent brush and knife marks
  • Increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency
  • Slows drying time so you achieve better color blends
  • Makes your color go further without affecting stability
  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to Use
  • Mix with Matte Gel to create a custom satin finish
  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the consistency and transparency you want - the more you add, the more transparent your color will become
  • Apply with a brush as a collaging glue
  • Do not vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
