Soft Gels (L-R,Gloss, Matte, Semi-Gloss) are thinner than Heavy Body Colours. These gels are moderately pourable, hold only slight peaks, and are ideal for glazing and other techniques that require transparency. Mix with colour to produce a brilliant glaze. Soft gels can be a base for wet blending and also as an adhesive for collage.
Soft Gels can also be used to create a non-removable isolation coat over any painting. To do so, gels must be thinned with water at a two-to-one ratio, and applied prior to any coats of varnish.
