Liquitex Acrylic Matte Gel Medium - Size: 8 oz.
SKU: LIQ5321
Liquitex Acrylic Matte Gel Medium - Size 8 oz.

A thick gel that imparts a transulcent matte sheen when dry. Ideal for creating collages with heavier objects. Combine with Gloss Gel to create a customized satin finish.

Attributes

  • Heavy Body.
  • Same qualities as Gloss Gel Medium, except dries translucent with a satin/matte finish.
  • Viscosity and body similar to Heavy Body Artist Color.
  • Matte Gel Medium has greater adhesion than Gloss Gel Medium and Gloss Heavy Gel Medium.
  • Translucent when wet, transparent when dry. Thicker applications result in less transparent dry medium films.
  • Mix with Liquitex Heavy Body Artist Color to obtain paint similar in color depth to oil paint.
  • Color mix will dry to a satin sheen.

Application

  • Refer to Techniques: Collage, Glazing, Brushwork - Blending.

As An Extender

As A Ground

  • Recommended as a translucent ground (size), for acrylic paint with excellent tooth and adhesion, instead of gesso. Will allow some color and texture of the support to show through. Use as a substitute size for the hide glue size traditionally used for oil paintings.
  • To prevent Substrate Induced Discoloration (SID), wash cotton or linen canvas before use.
  • Exterior Murals: If the support or wall is very rough, a coat of Matte Gel Medium should be brushed or toweled onto the surface prior to gesso application.
  • Refer to Gloss Gel Medium: Techniques - Ground for more detailed information.

For Impasto Effects

Collage

  • Makes and excellent glue for collage and decoupage.

With Powdered Pigments

  • Use as the binder for powdered pigments to make an inexpensive "student grade" Heavy Body (thick) matte paint. Pigment must be compatible with acrylic emulsion.
