Properties and Directions
A pure acrylic gel.
Apply with brush or pallet knife.
If used as a paint extender or paint thickener it has a fairly low impact on dry paint colour as it is free from pigments and extenders.
Thin films dry transparent, thick films dry opaque off-white.
Easy to paint over with soft to medium body acrylics.
The highly thixotropic nature of the gel allows it to be shaped but it still feels light and spreads easily. The dry gel is quite flexible which is very different to a modelling gel that dries hard and can be sanded. This gel cannot be sanded.
