A medium body gel that contains glass microspheres and dries to a reflective, undulating finish. Perfect for creating a “bubbly” but smooth texture that can be dramatic when mixed with colour. When poured it creates a flexible shimmering film for a wide variety of applications. Works well as a surface to paint over with colour. Can be used under oil or acrylic.
Liquitex Glass Beads are glass, not plastic, they do not pose the same environmental problem as micro beads and micro plastics. The glass is silica based - the same composition as sand. This is a natural material so does not absorb liquid toxins the same as plastic-based components and does not pose the same risks as marine micro plastics. In most cases, small amounts of Glass Beads are not hazardous to the environment when washed down the sink. Having said that, disposal in large quantities may have hazardous effects on the environment. Therefore, it is recommended that items that have been in contact with Glass Beads be wiped with a disposable cloth before the product is dry then washed.
