    What it does:

    • Natural sand particles add structure and texture to this 100% acrylic polymer gel
    • Dries to a glossy, 'beach sand' 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 colour or overpainted once dry
    • When mixed with acrylic colour, improves blending and gives oil-style stiffness
    • Provides an excellent textured ground or underpainting medium for acrylics, pastels and graphite - great for delicate marks and blending
    • Apply thickly to create bold 3D effects, or finely to give surface texture
    • Maintains colour 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 colour/medium to create custom texture
    • Start by adding very small amounts of colour and build up as needed
    • Overpaint when dry with acrylic colour
    • 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 colours 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
