Ceracolors Cold-Wax Gel Medium
A gel medium useful for creating glazes, extending colors, and increasing translucency, but with a heavy body that can inform thick layers.
Add Ceracolors Gel to Ceracolors paint for thick, impasto-like applications of paint.
Pastes differ from gels in that they are opaque and may contain calcite (chalk), bentonite (diatomaceous earth), fibers, clay, or other fillers resulting in a white finish with a variety of textures and properties. Pastes can also be used to create textured foundations for painting.
What Ceracolors Gel Can Do
Ceracolors Mediums offer artists unlimited control of Ceracolors water-soluble wax colors. Use mediums to control transparency, viscosity, and consistency. Ceracolors Mediums can be considered colorless wax paints, as they are composed of the same or similar waxes as Ceracolors paints. They are the “glue” or binder that dry to form continuous, durable films.
This section lists some typical uses of Fluid Medium, but it is not intended to be exhaustive. New and different ways to successfully use these products are constantly being discovered.

Alter Consistency: Mixing Gel Medium into Ceracolors will thicken the paint and provide additional body. All Ceracolors mediums are compatible with the entire family of Ceracolors products.
Glue or Adhere: Gel Medium can be used as an adhesive in collage when using porous materials and is not water-sensitive. Other materials, such as glass, metals, and plastics, should be avoided.
Make Paint: Gel Medium can be used as a binder when creating paints from dry pigments.
