GOLDEN Extra Heavy Gel has a thicker consistency than GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylic colours. It is the thickest of GOLDEN gels, along with the High Solid Gels. Blend this medium with colours to increase body. It is excellent for holding peaks and impasto techniques and dries translucent. GOLDEN Gel Mediums offer artists many ways to build texture. They can be thought of as colourless paint, as they are composed of 100% acrylic polymers similar to acrylic paint.
