Golden - Soft Gel (Gloss)
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 (gloss) will turn a fluid paint (like Fresco) into a heavier body paint, and will therfore hold brush strokes, or you can develop texture very easily, it will also allow you to extend Fresco chalk paint to make a paint more translucent depending on the ration of paint to gel. The gloss finish will add shine as a sealand to Fresco Paints, and allow you to turn a chalk paint into a result more like a glossy paint.
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 firm enough to use effectively to adhere dimensional objects like buttons and other embellishments. This gel is glossy, so it will dry with a gloss finish.
The gloss 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 gloss gel on top of our chalky matte Fresco paints it will make the colours look much brighter because more light is reflected back to the eye, making it perceive the colours as brighter.
