  • Canvases, Wood Paint Panels or Illustration Board

Quick Tip! Get all your materials ready before you start, that way everything is on hand.

Mix acrylic paint and gel medium in a 1:1 ratio. Apply to a non-porous surface like polyethene sheets or heavier 4mil. plastic bags (the Curry's bags work great). application should be at least 1mm thick, thinner application will tear as you peel it off.
