  • Can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water - distilled water will give best results
  • Mix as much as you like into acrylic colour to increase viscosity and transparency - the more you add, the more transparent your colour will become

Review this item
  • Very good - Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium 237ml

    First time I used it (recommended by teacher). Used it mostly to texture the paper and seal the drawing. It did the job beautifully and no smell. Marie-pierre Governale (London, United Kingdom) on 12 Mar 2012

  • Great stuff - Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel Medium 473ml

    I really enjoy using this medium. The paint stays workable in the canvas for an hour or more depending on the environment you are working in. If you wrap your palette in cling film/plastic etc stays workable fir a week or longer. Good body texture and a silk/ semi gloss finish. If you liked making mud pies as a child you'll love this stuff! Irene Wilson (Liverpool, United Kingdom) on 20 Feb 2015
