New feels. Each paste, gesso, and gel in the Texture line offers a unique grain, consistency, and natural texture to enhance whichever lucky surface you customer is improving. Gels and gesso create a variety of mixed media effects, and the entire line mixes with our mineral paints. So many options, we admit, not easy to choose.
Tommy Art Pastes can look like real rock, copper patina, terracotta, fresco, porcelain, clay and metal. Add new dimension to your art. Add a realistic faux-texture to all kinds of projects. Pastes adhere to most surfaces, dry quickly and can be mixed with the waxes, coatings, and colors of the Tommy Art DIY System to mimic natural oxidized copper.
We recommend applying thick layers to prevent crushing or cracking and using a palette knife to create relief effects. For best results, stir first and apply by dabbing with a stencil brush. For thicker pastes palette knives work better.
Tommy Art Gessos are primers for porous surfaces. They can be diluted with water or mixed with colours of the Tommy Art DIY Colour system. Gesso is perfect for adding subtle depth and light textural effects. We recommend applying gesso in thick layers to prevent crushing or cracking.
Matte Gels and Gloss Gels will modify the sheen of your colours. Mix them with colour or paint them on top of the colour.
