Question by junie ☆ ☆ ★: What does gloss gel from an acrylic paint pack do?
I recently bought an acrylic paint pack because I wanted to start painting, and it came with a bottle of gloss gel. I’m not too sure what it does, so I decided to ask here. Thanks!
(Just in case, brand is Liquitex.)

It’s just a clear heavy body acrylic. You can use it in multiple ways. Mix it with your paint to add body for textures or impasto techniques. Add small amounts of color to create transparent colors or glazed effects. I once used it as a top coat on an airbrushed painting to add brush strokes and make it appear to have been painted with traditional brush techniques. There are a number of other things you can do with it. Don’t be afraid of it’s white appearance. It dries completely clear.
