What it does
  • Tiny hollow ceramic spheres add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
  • Dries to a light gray matte stucco finish
  • Highly flexible and adhesive
  • Will not chip or crack on canvas
  • Gives an opaque/semi-opaque appearance - the thicker you apply, the more opaque it becomes
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or overpainted once dry
  • Provides an excellent absorbent ground for acrylics, pastels and graphite - for glazing, washes and drawing on
  • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
  • Maintains color adhesion, durability and archival quality
How to use it
  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Apply with palette knife or brush
  • Tint with acrylic color to make a colored texture cement
  • Intermix with other texture gels to get a custom effect
  • Overpaint when dry with acrylic color
  • To use as an absorbent ground - apply a thin layer to surface and leave to dry
  • To color wash - paint over with a mix of color and Airbrush Medium
  • Apply thickly for sculptural texture
  • For abstract effects, apply different colors with a knife, building layers dry or wet in wet
  • Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments
  • Varnish for additional protection
How not to use it
  • If varnishing, don't be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming - spray varnish will give best results
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
