I was thinking of mixing some gel up.  Has anyone used it, and if so what consistency does it have.  The pictures I saw suggested a consistency rather like toothpaste.  Quite stiff.  It seems it would be stiffer than average paints if it is a thixotropic medium.


  • TamDeal

    Pretty close to toothpaste. When mixed with paint the consistency remains soft and workable.
    the paint mixture just heaps up more and stays like that until it dries.

    I bought a tube to try, but apart from an experimental mix on my palette I have not used it.
    I mixed the oleogel with W&N water mixables and SDM. Worked OK.

  • Thanks Dencal.  I have the silica, so I thought I might give it a go.
