There are many ways to add texture and dimension to your artwork, but lava gel is perhaps one of the most unique. This thick, acrylic gel medium is formulated for maximum flexibility to help you achieve a distinct look and feel no matter if you apply it in thick or thin layers.
Black lava gel is typically created with minuscule glass beads or black acrylic polymer hexagons to achieve a textured speckled effect. Nova Color’s coarse lava gel maintains its color adhesion, durability, and archival quality and is extremely versatile.
The flexible coarse lava gel can be applied in thick layers to create a dramatic 3D without chipping or cracking on canvas. Or, use a thin layer for a subtle highlight. Like other texture gels, how you use lava gel is up to your preference and the look and feel you want to create.
This special effects medium can also be used on its own or mixed with color. By itself, the dried paint is transparent with black speckles and can change appearance depending on how thick it’s applied. It can be mixed with transparent paint or opaque colors to create a textured acrylic color, or you can apply acrylic paint over dried coarse lava gel to really make the texture pop.
