The Soft Matte Gel by Finnabair for Prima is part of the Art Basics Collection. This transparent, water-based acrylic medium is great as a collage adhesive or as a medium for transfer techniques. Try it as a base for custom paints and gels. It dries flexible and permanent with a transparent matte finish. Apply it with a paintbrush. This soft matte gel is archival-safe and non-toxic. The jar has 8.5 fluid ounces of gel.
I purchased this after seeing it used on an online video. It’s definitely more expensive than the medium I used to use but I would purchase it again. The main difference is that it doesn’t go on as watery so the paper doesn’t buckle or fall apart. Since it has less water it dries faster, too. You don’t need much to adhere collage pieces and it can be brushed over the top to seal everything. The best part is that I can a use it to adhere buttons or small metal or jewelry pieces to my collage. Once it dries they are firmly in place.
