Tri-Art Self Leveling Gel Matte- Self Leveling Gel is the ideal medium for creating thick, level glazes without brush strokes. When used to extend color, it will impart its self leveling properties to color acrylics. It dries to a level, matte film which can be etched into when partially dry to create encaustic like effects. Formulated from 100% pure acrylic polymer emulsion, this product has a milky appearance when wet and will dry clear. It increases the flow and transparency of acrylic colors and remains flexible even in multiple layers. Self leveling gel is the medium of choice when an even surface is needed for collage or decoupage.
In her book "The New Acrylics," artist Rheni Tauchid uses self leveling gels to create many unique effects- like the acrylic tiles pictured here. Acrylic colors can be mixed with self leveling gel to create sheets of translucent color- just like stained glass! Image is copyright by Rheni Tauchid/Jonathan Sugarman. This fantastic and innovative book on acrylics is available in the book department of our website!
