This medium is composed of small, spherical glass beads suspended in a thick, clear acrylic gel. When used with a transparent colour, the effects are arresting and jewel-like.
This medium adds texture and interest when used with acrylic paints, the description is slightly misleading as you have to apply this quite thickly to get the right effect. It doesn't really give the 'jewel' effect I was wanting but it is still a useful product for adding interest and depth to your work. Choi Leung (Wilmslow, United Kingdom) on 21 Jun 2013
This is great to use giving a beautiful texture, very happy with this product. Jacqueline Nash (London, United Kingdom) on 28 May 2016
These took a while to get used to. I had expected them to come out of the packet in a more dense packing in the gel, but I like the effects that they give. So far I have tried them 'neat' and look forward to pre-mixing them with paint to see what can be done. Diana (London, United Kingdom) on 29 Jun 2015
