Matisse Self Leveling Gel is a versatile Self Leveling medium used for thick gloss varnishing, pouring or marbling techniques.
Matisse Self Leveling Gel will automatically spread itself to when applied to flat surface to create a smooth, glossy finish with minimal surface texture.
Matisse Self Leveling Gel can be Applied with a brush, palette knife or jug poured directly onto surface. Self leveling gel may be mixed with any acrylic paint or ink for tinting.
Application / Use
There are many application methods for this product, providing the artists with a myriad of possibilities.
It can be tinted with the addition of Matisse Ink or Matisse Flow Acrylic Paint. Using ink will maintain transparency and a glossy finish, while the use of acrylic paint will make the final result more opaque and less glossy.
Only a small amount (less than 10%) of either paint or ink is required. As this product is white in the container, the addition of colour will initially produce a pastel blend, but this will develop into a bright, transparent colour after the drying process is completed. This drying time must be taken into account when applying multiple layers of colour if the artist wants to see how the colour will develop between layers.
