Langridge Oil Glazing Gel can be used as an all-round flow medium for extending oil colours. The glazing gel was developed as a multi-puropse medium to be added to oil colours in quantities at the discretion of the artist. Langridge Oil Glazing Gel is fast drying to allow for the rapid build up of paint layers.
Langridge Oil Glazing Gel is a thixotropic medium. Its’ natural state is as a soft gel and when mixed with paint and applied vigorously with brushes or palette knife, the medium becomes highly fluid allowing easy brushing. As soon as the medium stops being moved it immediately ‘sets up’ and does not drip or lose its’ position. Artists can utilise this high degree of manipulation for a very robust brushmarking technique without the thick application of paint.
