Sculptural effects with the structure paste and structure gel

07/19/2018 |

Structure pastes and structure gels from the SOLO GOYA Acrylic mediums enable artists to create a wide range of relief-like image designs and compositions with particular depth. The pastes and gels are applied with a palette knife or brush and are suitable both for sculptural design and for embedding materials for collages.

The SOLO GOYA structure pastes are pasty and spreadable in consistency and have only low volume shrinkage. They dry white, matt and opaque. The structure paste can be mixed with acrylic paint in any ratio or painted over with acrylic paint after drying. Structure pastes dry crack-free with an application thickness of up to max. 1 cm. For thick layers, a multi-layer build-up is advisable.

If the SOLO GOYA Structure Paste is used as a base structure, it can be painted over after drying. When the structure paste is mixed into the acrylic paint, it changes its colour tone. It becomes lighter and more pastel.

The SOLO GOYA texture gels are milky-white acrylic gels with a creamy consistency. They dry transparent and can be mixed with acrylic paints in any ratio. They increase the colour brilliance and influence the gloss level of the mixed colour.

Since the structure gels dry transparently, they can be used in many different ways. On the one hand, they can be applied as a transparent surface structure over individual image elements: a lacquer look is created, which is sometimes used quite purposefully when matte and glossy surfaces meet.

It looks particularly impressive when light hits the transparent, modelled surface structure. In addition, texture gels can also be mixed into the acrylic paint as desired as a consistency enhancer, for example, to thicken the SOLO GOYA Acrylic.
