Matte Gel Medium has the same body and viscosity of Heavy Body Artist Color and, when mixed with color, it will add body and a satin/matte finish. Adding volume, this medium can be used to create striking impasto effects. It dries clear to translucent depending on the thickness of application.
In addition to providing a matte sheen to an acrylic color, Matte Gel Medium will extend drying time and increase the brilliance and transparency of the color without changing the thickness.
This medium can be used as a transparent ground for acrylic paint instead of gesso to allow the painting surface to be seen. With greater adhesive properties than Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium, this medium can also be used as an excellent glue when bonding images for collage or decoupage.
Available in 8 oz. and 16 oz. jars
