SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel lifts works of art into a new dimension

06/23/2020 |

What do the ups and downs of an acrylic painting feel like? What was previously smooth and flowing now becomes voluminous and powerful. The secret to stability is the SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel. The highly pasty acrylic gel can be filled to form mountains and shaped into hollows. This turns acrylic painting into haptic worlds of experience. Whether into abstract structures or as sensual support for landscape paintings: the SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel lifts works of art into a new dimension.

 

The water-based acrylic gel is milky-white when wet and semi-transparent when dry. Colour mountains that you can touch are created by mixing the SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel with the SOLO GOYA Acrylic. A few drops of acrylic paint are enough to colour the gel. The mixed colour paste can be used immediately and can be applied with a palette knife.

In quick movements we mix a large blob of the SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure gel with cadmium yellow and shed the mass onto the painting surface. It becomes particularly expressive when several shades of colour are placed overlapping with the palette knife. Amazing how intensively cadmium yellow, Payne's grey, light green, vermilion and magenta shine as rises. With the help of the SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel, not only the high-contrast colour composition but also the three-dimensional look is impressive.
 

The addition of the structure gel increases the transparency of the acrylic paint and reduces its gloss. A property that can be also used effectively. The SOLO GOYA Heavy Body Structure Gel can be applied using various filling techniques without any problems as it remains crack-free up to a maximum application thickness of 1 cm. Why not experiment with different grooves and layers of the paste on the stretched frame.? After drying, the relief art can be painted over with the SOLO GOYA Acrylic. Three-dimensional art opens up so many new possibilities.
