Liquitex Satin Gel Medium

  • Description
  • How to Use

Liquitex Satin Gel Medium can be mixed with acrylic colours to increase their texture and extend their volume. Paints mixed with this medium will dry to a satin finish. It can also be used as a strong collaging adhesive.

Satin Gel Medium allows you to thicken your acrylic paints to give even heavy body paints a more oil-like texture. As well as thickening paint, this medium will help maintain good adhesion, durability and archival qualities. This medium can also be used with Soft Body acrylics to thicken their consistency. It will slow the drying time and retain the brush strokes with any acrylic paint it is mixed with. It is ideal for artists looking to use impasto painting techniques. Collage and mixed media artists also find it useful as an adhesive for heavier collage materials. Satin Gel can be used for image transfers.

Satin Gel Medium is lightfast, archival, permanent, non-yellowing, flexible, non-cracking and water-resistant when dry. It is intermixable with all Liquitex acrylic paints and mediums.

To use Liquitex Satin Gel Mediums follow these steps:

  • Mix as much of this medium as you like into your acrylic paints to get the viscosity and transparency you require. The more medium you add the more transparent your colour will be.
  • This gel can be thinned by diluting with up to 25% water. Distilled water will give the best results.
  • Mix with Heavy Body Acrylic to extend volume and maintain viscosity.
  • Mix with Soft Body or Acrylic Ink to extend volume and thicken.
  • This gel has a semi-opaque finish when taken straight from the tub, but will dry to a transparent finish. If used very thickly it may dry semi-opaque.
  • To use as a collaging glue apply with a brush to your collaging materials.

Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as it may cause the medium to dry to a foggy or hazy finish.

Do not use with any non-acrylic media.
