Golden - Soft Gel (Matte)
Golden Gel mediums come in various consistencies: soft, regular, heavy etc and are primarily used by artists to change the consistency of paint without compromising the colour value.
Soft gel (matte) is thinner than Golden Heavy Body Pint Colours. Holds only slight peaks. Excellent as a base for wet blending of colour.
Soft Gel is also used as an archival quality adhesive, in other words, it will not yellow with age like PVA adhesives, and is UV safe. Soft gel is ideal for extending colours, altering sheen (matte will take the shine off glossy paints), increasingl translucency, adhering collage elements without leaving any visible glue marks, increases film integrity. Use to thicken fluid paints or thin Heavy Body paint.
The matte effect can be used effectively for resist techniques through stencils, or can also be used as a sealant over the top of fresco paints. If you apply a matte gel on top of our chalky matte Fresco paints it will seal the colours.
