[Acrylic] Soft Gels for Blending, Collage Adhesion, Glazing, and Texture

Return to Video Library

Soft Gels are thinner than Heavy Body Colors. They can be mixed with acrylic colors to produce a brilliant glaze. Soft gels can be used as a base for wet blending or as an adhesive for collage. Gel Mediums offer many ways to build texture. GOLDEN offers five consistencies from our most viscous Extra Heavy Gel to Soft Gel. Each gel is available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matte finishes. They can be used to create glazes, extend paint and change finishes. Gels are essentially colorless paint, as they use the same 100% acrylic polymers as acrylic paint. Gels are also excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media, they dry with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance.
