Holbein Acrylic Modeling Pastes are added to paint to enhance texture and increase volume to make colours go further. They can be used as a textured or tooth ground under the paint or mixed with the colour. Holbein Acrylic Gel Mediums are professional quality, non-yellow, and non-cracking. Like all Holbein art materials, these mediums are formulated to meet some of the most stringent quality standards in the industry.
A unique feature of these gels is how they are packaged. The freestanding poly-bags are tough, durable, and help save money. It is easy to squeeze out just the right amount gel. Then continue to squeeze it out to the last drop. The container can be flattened as gel is dispensed. Air is pushed out of the packaging to prevent product drying before you can use it. This means less waste. Plus the package shrinks as you use it making it easy for an acrylic painter to tote materials around. No more bulky jars.
