Can I paint over String Gel to create texture?

Paint over dry String Gel to add texture. Ensure it's completely dry before over-painting with acrylic color.

What is String Gel?

String Gel is a viscous acrylic formula. It maintains shape when dry and offers a wet-look finish.

Do I use a brush with String Gel?

You can drip and guide it with a brush or you can use the non-brush end to drizzle it. Try our splatter brush or a spoon to create different effects.
