Liquitex Resin Sand Gel

  • Description
  • How to use it

A thick, coarse gel that dries to a semi-gloss texture similar to rough cement. Mix with Black Lava and Ceramic Stucco to create an absorbent, granite like surface that is very receptive to Soft Body colours.

What it does

  • Irregular size polymer particles add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
  • Dries to a semi-gloss, rough cement 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 absorbent granite-like ground when mixed with Black Lava and Ceramic Stucco - ideal for Soft Body Acrylic application
  • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
  • Maintains colour adhesion, durability and archival quality

  • Good for ground effects - Liquitex Resin Sand Gel 237ml

    I have used this product for years now. Gwen applied to your art paper it can give the effect of sand or gravel.
    If left to dry it can then be painted over in the required colour. Recommended DONALD LEATON (DOWNHAM MARKET, United Kingdom) on 18 Oct 2018
