Matte Gel Medium maintains all of the properties of its glossy counterpart, but it produces instead a very matte and toothy finish. When mixed with Gloss Gel Medium, a full range of finishes can be achieved. Use it also as a photo transfer medium. Using a paintbrush or palette knife, apply the medium to any photocopied image, let dry and then wash the paper away from the dried gel film with lukewarm water. The ink will remain on the gel, which can then be bound to the painting surface.
