SUPPLIERS OF THE FINEST ART MATERIALS

Acrylic Gels

Acrylic gels can be important parts of many a creative project. They are added to acrylic in order to add a certain quality to that paint. This means that you can fine tune the character of your paint according to what you require of it in a specific painting.

Usually, this will all be to do with texture, and the ability to keep shape (or not). By adding a certain acrylic gel, you will be able to tweak the characteristics of your paint to alter the way in which it behaves. This is hugely beneficial to any artist, whether you are a beginner or a pro.

Levelling Gels

Levelling gel is used to increase the transparency and shimmer of acrylic paints, while it also gives your acrylics a levelling quality, rounding off the paint to make it balanced. Not only that, but the levelling gel will also create a film which will offer strong chemical, water, and ultraviolet resistance.

Matte, Gloss and Semi-Gloss Gels

You can also change the character in terms of how glossy or matte the finish is by using gels. The completed artwork will have its finish altered depending on which gel you add. Pick up some matte, gloss or semi-gloss gel, add it to your acrylic, and you will be able to create the specific finish which you need.

Extra Heavy Gel / Impasto Gel

Extra heavy gel / impasto gel can be blended with your colours in order to increase the body of your acrylic. It is ideal for holding peaks, as well as for impasto techniques when you are layering your paint, so that it stands out from the surface. It is more rigid than a basic gel, giving your work more structure.

Acrylic Gel Retarder

Retarders delay the drying time of your paint. But, crucially, they don't reduce the viscosity. This means that your paint will be just the same consistency, but you will have an extended amount of time to work with your paint and blending colours. By extending the working time of your paint, you will also be able to work with a thicker application of colour in your painting techniques.
