A pure polymer gel created for use as a heavy-bodied gloss medium. Apply in multiple layers for clear impastos and heavy glazes. Mixed with color, it lengthens handling time & retains the body of the mixture while reducing color strength. 

Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is a translucent, gloss medium that can be mixed with paint to give it a gloss finish while making it thinner and more transparent. It can also be used as a collaging adhesive.

How it works

Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is a colorless acrylic medium that improves the flow of acrylic paint. Adding water to acrylic paint will give you less intense color and poorer all-round performance. Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium increases surface gloss, color depth and transparency. It also thins heavier body paints, giving increased flow. This makes your color go further without affecting stability, adhesion, durability or archival quality.

How to use

Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is a unique medium that has been specifically developed for mixed media artists. Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products, it can be used to create a custom satin finish. It can also be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water-distilled water will give the best results. You can mix as much as you like into acrylic color to create the consistency and transparency you want-the possibilities are boundless.

Gloss Gel Medium Recommendations 

When working with Gloss Gel Medium, it is important to keep a few things in mind to achieve the best results. First, be sure not to shake or vigorously over-brush the product, as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry. Additionally, it is important to note that Gloss Gel Medium should not be used with any non-acrylic media. By following these procedures and regulations, many artists have happily been using the medium for many years.

Other Details about the Gel Medium

The artist and developers from Liquitex developed this product as a way to ensure that users were getting the type of product that they really needed. With regard to other types of mediums, the gel medium is bouncy enough for mixing it with thick paints without feeling overwhelmed. The medium works rather well because it’s not overly thick and doesn’t get clumpy during use. For those who need a thinner structure, there are even Liquitex pouring medium solutions by the company.

One Medium, Many Uses

The flexibility of this Gel Medium makes it a hit. Whenever students, painters, or art professionals need to blend objects or create new perspectives within the artwork, they can use the Gel Medium successfully. If you already use acrylic products for work or play, bringing along the Gel Medium will make sure that you don’t miss out on professional quality.
