The main aim of the MM30 Matt Gel Medium is to act as a semi-clear transparent colour extender in the production of brilliant coloured glazes and as a transparent impasto for thick three-dimensional brush and knife applications of Matisse Structure. Its prime requirement is to be thick and buttery whilst remaining semi-transparent, with a subdued sheen level.
It is recommended that a starting point of 5% acrylic paint be added to this medium. When mixed, the blended paint and gel medium should be a very pale version of the original paint colour. As it dries, the transparent qualities of this medium become apparent, and the richness of the acrylic colour will develop. Although it may be tempting to add more paint, doing so will reduce the transparent effect, resulting in thick, matt, opaque layers of colour. Do not allow to freeze.
