The GOLDEN 6 Acrylic Textures Set of Gel Mediums and Molding Pastes offers the opportunity to experiment with a representative sampling of Gel Mediums. Gel Mediums used alone, or blended with acrylic colors can add texture, broaden the working properties and expand the possibilities. The set includes six 2 fl oz tubes: Soft Gel Gloss, Regular Gel Semi-Gloss, Extra Heavy Gel Matte, Light Molding Paste, Coarse Pumice Gel, Clear Tar Gel. Also included is a product brochure with brief descriptions of product features.
Clear Leveling Gel [formerly Self Leveling Clear Gel] produces an even film with excellent clarity. It has a unique resinous, stringy consistency resulting from its leveling property. Clear Leveling gel dries to a flexible, high gloss film while imparting a leveling quality to other GOLDEN Acrylic products. It blends well with GOLDEN Acrylic colors to produce glazes. (Item # 3001)
Clear Tar Gel has a pully, tar-like feel, but in a clear, colorless gel. This extremely resinous and stringy consistency makes it feel very different from other acrylic gels. Useful for generating fine detailed lines by "dripping" it over surfaces, as it continuously flows from palette knives or other tools. It blends well with all GOLDEN Acrylic colors, although Fluid Colors work best. (Item # 3330)
Pastes can be used to achieve a variety of effects and expressions. When used in conjunction with acrylic colors they broaden working properties and expand creative possibilities. Unlike gels, pastes are opaque because they contain Marble Dust or other fillers that create a white or clay-tone finish with a variety of textures and properties. Molding Paste can also be used to create foundations for painting either to create texture over a smoother surface, or to smooth out a textured surface. The absorbent qualities of Molding Paste make it suitable as a ground for nearly every painting and drawing media.
Coarse Molding Paste - thick, warm white colored medium, translucent up to about 1/8 inch thickness. Dries to a hard, stiff but flexible film with a tooth like fine sandpaper. Accepts wet and dry media very well. Mix with Fluid or Heavy Body Acrylics to create dense paint that holds good peaks and dries matte to satin with a finely pebbled surface.(Item# 3572)
Pumice Gels (L-R Fine, Coarse, Extra Coarse) textures dry to hard films. They mix well with GOLDEN Acrylic Colors. Fine Pumice Gel is useful as a drawing ground. Coarse Pumice Gel and Extra Coarse Pumice Gel create more coarse textures to yield concrete-like finishes. (Item# Fine - 3195, Coarse - 3200, Extra Coarse - 3205)
Mix Heavy Body, Fluid, or High Flow Acrylics into Color Pouring Medium Gloss for an almost opaque, glossy and level appearance. Color Pouring Medium Matte provides a low lustre finish on color pours. Colors hold their edges when poured wet into wet. Gently mix 10 parts Color Pouring Medium with 1 part acrylic color, allow mixture to sit covered (ideally overnight) to eliminate air bubbles. Pour close to the surface to reduce air bubbles. Paintings may need to be dried for a few days before moving and tenting is recommended. Do not pour thicker than 1/8” (3mm) or attempt to accelerate drying. (Color Pouring Medium Gloss Item #3501, Color Pouring Medium Matte Item #3502)
Crackle Paste is a thick, opaque material that cracks as it dries. The size and extent of the cracking pattern depends on the thickness of application, and environmental conditions during drying and other factors. Dries to an opaque, matte finish, with an absorbent surface suitable for acrylic paints and medium. Item no.3557
