Liquitex Ceramic Stucco Gel

  • Description
  • How to use it

A favourite medium of many artists. This thick, cement-like fine-textured gel can be applied with a palette knife to give the surface finish of an Italian fresco. It dries to a light gray matte stucco finish and is a great absorbent ground for washes and glazing. Try painting over the dry surface with airbrush medium or drawing with pastel or charcoal.

What it does

  • Tiny hollow ceramic spheres add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
  • Dries to a light gray matte stucco finish
  • Highly flexible and adhesive
  • Will not chip or crack on canvas
  • Gives an opaque/semi-opaque appearance - the thicker you apply, the more opaque it becomes
  • Can be used on its own, mixed with colour or overpainted once dry
  • Provides an excellent absorbent ground for acrylics, pastels and graphite - for glazing, washes and drawing on
  • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
  • Maintains colour adhesion, durability and archival quality
