Golden High Solid Gel is a thick, flexible medium for use with acrylic colours. It offers lower shrinkage and dries to the touch quicker than most Gels. High Solid Gels are good for holding peaks. They blend with colours to make them feel more oil-like and increase the retention of brushstrokes.
High Solid Gel has a thicker consistency than Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colours and is the thickest of Golden gels, along with the Heavy and Extra Heavy Gels. Blend with colours to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks and impasto techniques. This High Solid Gel dries to a translucent matte finish.
Gel Mediums offer many ways to build texture. Golden offers five consistencies from the most viscous Extra Heavy Gel to Soft Gel. Each gel is available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matte finishes. They can be used to create glazes, extend paint and change finishes. Gels are essentially colourless paint, as they utilise the same 100% acrylic polymers as acrylic paint. Gels are also excellent adhesives for collage and mixed media, they dry with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance. All Golden gels are opaque when wet but dry clear.
