Product description


Hydrogel is a clear gel that thickens the consistency of water­color, allowing better control, adding texture and gloss. Mix it with any water-based paint or apply it pure with a spatula on the surface of paper or absorbent ground prior to painting. Hydrogel dries slowly, reduces the flow of color, and remains water soluble.

Hydrogel is a gel composed of gum arabic and pyrogenic silica that can be mixed with water-based paints to achieve impasto-like effects. This transparent gel medium reduces the flow of water-based media giving an impasto effect to watercolor and gouache. Squeeze Hydrogel onto the palette and add just enough to the watercolor wash until the wash thickens. Tube colors are easier to use for stronger washes or when large amounts are required. Hydrogel washes will not flow into each other so they are excellent for clouds or multi-colored areas such as landscapes.

Natural Pigments

Natural Pigments is a limited liability company based in Willits, California. We manufacture and distribute rare and hard-to-find materials for fine artists and decorators. We specialize in supplying artists' materials that were used in historical painting since pre-historic times up to and including the nineteenth century.

We constantly search for materials and products of the finest quality so that we can bring them direct to you from the source. To do so, we travel the world to find materials specifically for use by professional artists and decorators. We obtain minerals from mines in Afghanistan, Chile, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, to name a few places, processing these into natural pigments. We purchase resins, gums and plants from India, Kenya and Malaysia to make natural varnishes and painting mediums.

Our mission is to provide the largest variety of natural pigments, paints and other professional artists' supplies, enabling us to bring you a selection that makes shopping for rare and hard-to-find art materials easy. Our objective is to promote the education and use of these materials among artists by providing detailed information for their employment in encaustic, fresco, oil, watercolor and tempera painting.
