  • good semi-matte gel

    The good news is the great price, and the fact that this gel is very heavy-bodied, with lots of polymer in the formula. This gel works really well as a glue or for getting extra body + translucency in your paint. I ordered several jars, and found that they are not really a flat matte. They are more of a semi-matte. I find this to be a very good product in terms of physical performance, just not totally matte.

  • Hard edge applications

    Matt gel is the perfect medium for sealing tape for hard edge applications. After applying tape, I brush matt gel lightly over the edges. It is not watery so does not leak under the tape and after it dries prevents paint from bleeding under the tape. A clean edge results for me every time. It is important to remove the tape soon after this process so it is not hard to get off as its adherence qualities are very good also.

    I have used this product for over twenty years. Minimal shrinkage., maintains true hue, value and chroma. Only wish it came in an extra heavy or thick gel.
