Liquitex -  Resin Sand  8oz/237ml Medium

Build flexible, coarse-grade sandy texture with this thick acrylic effects gel.

    What it does
    • Irregular size polymer particles add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
    • Dries to a semi-gloss, rough cement finish
    • Highly flexible and adhesive
    • Will not chip or crack on canvas
    • Gives an opaque/semi-opaque appearance - the thicker you apply, the more opaque it becomes
    • Can be used on its own, mixed with color or overpainted once dry
    • Provides an absorbent granite-like ground when mixed with Black Lava and Ceramic Stucco - ideal for Soft Body Acrylic application
    • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
    • Maintains color adhesion, durability and archival quality
    How to use it
    • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
    • Apply with knife or brush
    • Can be thinned with a small amount of distilled water if required
    • Mix with different consistencies and ratios of acrylic color/medium to create custom texture
    • Start by adding very small amounts of color and build up as needed
    • Overpaint when dry with acrylic color
    • To use as a ground - apply a thin layer to surface and leave to dry
    • Apply thickly for sculptural texture
    • Mix with Gloss Medium to create a textured glaze
    • For abstract effects, apply different colors with a knife, building layers dry or wet in wet
    • Can be mixed with acrylic-compatible powdered pigments
      How not to use it
      • If varnishing, don't be too vigorous as this can cause clouding or foaming - spray varnish will give best results
      • Do not use with any non-acrylic compatible media
