Embossing Gel is a decorative, water based, acrylic gel medium that dries clear. The clarity allows any color underneath to show through and may be tinted with Mica Powder, Pigment Powder, paints, etc. to create an even more unique look. Use with a furniture stencil or by itself to add raised and detailed texture to your next project.
One 16 oz. jar of Embossing Gel can cover approximately 12 square feet by brush and 2 square feet by trowel.
