Van Eyck Gel Medium 40ml Tube
Medium with a gel-like consistency, based on mastic resin and oil thickened in the presence of metal oxides. Easy application. Fixes brushstrokes. Increases gloss, transparency and depth of colour. Allows oil colours to be superimposed rapidly, even when paint is fresh, without diluting the underlying coats. For rough sketches, thin the medium with turpentine or petroleum spirits. Enrich as work proceeds. Provides rapid setting followed by progressive drying. Van Eyck medium gives the brushstrokes (even when using impasto techniques) a varnished, enamel finish. Also suitable for glazing and modelling.
