Liquitex thickening gel is used to produce a painting to be sculpted. It can be added to acrylic paints and to water-based mediums.
Liquitex thickening gel is suitable for creating sculptured effects when a matte finish is desired. When added to acrylic paints and water-based mediums, it offers the same handling characteristics as oil or wax paint.
Liquitex thickening gel allows for properties close to oil paint. It alters neither the tone of colours, nor their transparency.
