Gel Mediums

by Golden


Golden acrylic Gel Mediums offer artists many ways to build texture. Gels can be thought of as colorless paints, as they are composed of similar polymers as are the acrylic paints. They may be considered the "glue" or binder that dry to form continuous, durable films. They are made of 100% acrylic polymers, which have proven to have excellent flexibility and chemical, water and ultraviolet radiation resistance.

  • Soft Gels--Thinner than Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colors, Soft Gels are moderately pourable. Hold only slight peaks. The recommended acrylic to function as a glue for collaging. Soft Gel Gloss is ideal for glazing and other techniques where transparency is desired. Useful as a non-removable isolation coat, applied over the painting and before the varnish
  • Regular Gels--Same creamy consistency as Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colors. Ideal for extending acrylics and regulating translucency without changing the consistency of the paint. Hold moderate peaks and texture. The Regular Gel Gloss is ideal for glazing and other techniques where transparency is desired.
  • Heavy Gels--Thicker consistency than Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colors. Blend with colors to increase body. Good for holding peaks. Dries translucent.
  • Extra Heavy Gels--Thicker consistency than Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colors. The thickest of Golden gels. Blend with colors to increase body. Excellent for holding peaks and impasto techniques. Dries translucent.
  • High Solid Gel-- Thicker consistency than Golden Heavy Body Acrylic colors, while being similar to Extra-Heavy Gels. Offers lower shrinkage and dries to the touch quicker than most Gels. High Solid Gels are good for holding peaks. Blends with colors to make them feel more oil-like and increases retention of brushstrokes.
  • Clear Granular Gel - Used to create textured surfaces. Dries to a hard film. To increase its flexibility, mix in other Golden Gels or mediums. Blends with Golden Acrylic colors.

I am using this gel to paint faux fur on a sculpture . It works great and is easy to use.
Rated by: Catherine U. in Little Neck, NY
recently got into altered books and this gel came highly recommended - made the job of gluing the pages go fast & easy - excellent product.
Rated by: Steve R. in Santa Barbara, CA
I have been using gels as a medium so my paints will last longer and have found that it's creating some great effects too.
Rated by: Alice C. in Raleigh, NC
Golden gel mediums are my favorites for use with altered art/altered books. They work great for image transfering as well.
Rated by: k a m. in colorado springs, CO
best product for sealing and gluing try it
Rated by: Cassandra M. in Worcester, MA
Golden Gel Mediums are a must have for all collage/book artists. There is nothing that comes close to their quality, and for once.. a product that says matte and IS matte! Perfection. Exactly what you want in an adhesive/sealer.
Rated by: Joann D. in Plymouth, NH
The Golden Gel Mediums are the best 'gluer downer' that I have ever used. They make everything waterproof, work well with all kinds of paper, and to glue down polymer clay tiles. The best on the market!
Rated by: Kristin C. in Wichita, KS
I love using this stuff as a glue/paste when I collage. It's AWESOME, drys without warping and is good for so many things besides mixing with my acrylic paints.
Rated by: Missy T. in Dodge City, KS
I have tried other brands of gel medium...nothing compares to Golden. This brand seems to show fewer bubbles beneath paper and adheres very well. Great for collage!
Rated by: Trina W. in Tumwater, WA
Absolutely the best. So many uses and it is superior to all other gel mediums.
Rated by: Jo Beth H. in Notthingham, MD
Golden products speak for themselves; they are the finest quality that there is. I use this with my acrylic paints and to build texture within my artwork. I am always pleased with the effect.
Rated by: Jodi L. in Inman, KS
Great Stuff.. i used it on an outdoor mural as an isolation layer and acheived great results. Based on a recommendation from the company though, i had ordered way more than was necessary for the area i needed it for.
Rated by: katheryn b. in philomath, OR
I use Golden gel mmediums without exception. My art centers around collage and paper making. The Golden mediums are far superior to any other brand I have tried. I especially appreciate knowing that I can count on this product to give me the same results each time I use it. Other products tend to remain tacky and are inconsistent in their finish.
Rated by: daria p. in roswell, GA
I used this product to cover painted kitchen counter tops followed by a coat of polyurathane, it worked great. It went further than expected so I have a lot left over for other projects. Thank you for your prompt delivery.
Rated by: Jeri W. in Paso Robles, CA
All Golden products never let you down. Gel Medium is great for most any paper project.
Rated by: Jessi E. in Hendersonville, NC
Great stuff! Another 5-star rating. Product adheres to most surfaces, including beads glued onto glass. Washes easily. Doesn't dry completely clear when used in larger globs, so take note. It's so functional, I use it as my only glue 95% of the time.
Rated by: Lynette H. in Everett, WA
I use these products for gluing collage elements to a surface, building up depth and transparent or translucent layers, for extending colors, and for the barrier layers just before the varnish goes on a painting. Golden is the best. I don't buy gels or mediums from other companies anymore.
Rated by: Sharon D P. in Pasadena, MD
I finally got around to trying the Golden Gels and found them to be the best gels that I`ve tried. I do altered books and collage and I recommend them to everyone now too.
Rated by: Sandy W. in Ripon, WI
This medium works great for image transfers as well as collage work.
Rated by: Kerry G. in Caldwell, ID
Used the project in transferring pics onto tumbled marble for coasters. A great project and the Gel Medium was easy to use, easy to clean up and worked perfectly. It was the only brand recommended and I'm happy I found it and didn't attempt the project with anything else. Excellent outcome!
Rated by: Libby W. in Alpharetta, GA
A must have for gel transfers. Easy to use, little smell, dries quickly.
Rated by: Beverly M. in Malvern, AR
excellent tack and consistency. Love this product
Rated by: Michel P. in Columbus, OH
I love this product and try to always have a supply on hand to do my collage work. I am making books and journals and use the semi-gloss medium for the covers.
Rated by: Patrick O. in trenton, NJ
great product, has all the qualities i look for in an acrylic base. fast delivery from misterart.com as well.
Rated by: Sherry F. in Huntsville, AL
Golden Gel Mediums are the best I've ever used. I use them for textured glazes, as a glue for my collage work, and as a final finsih for altered book work.
Rated by: Tina G. in Defiance, OH
If you want to create textures and textured effects, this gel product is for you. Golden is great for collage projects too. I really like it.
Rated by: Ryan F. in Ellicott City, MD
I've tried several different brands of the Heavy Gel, this here is my favorite, and now I strictly use this GOLDEN brand, however I can only speak for the 'Heavy Gels', and the 'Extra Heavy Gels'. They Rock!! Great for textures, and holding peaks, and keeping thick brush strokes.
