Pumice Gel

Greetings everyone!
For my new class this weekend I have been playing with Pumice Gel by Golden Products. This is very cool stuff. Fine pumice is like using Gel medium mixed with a little bit of sandpaper. You can stencil with and stamp into Fine Pumice gel easily. It dries translucent like Gel Medium but is a little bit gritty. Coarse Pumice gel is like "stone in a jar". When mixed with regular molding paste it spreads easily despite the larger chunks of pumice and it stencils great. Both pumice gels pair with Micaceous Iron Oxide beautifully and take acrylic paint easily. When I use this product I always think of ancient ruins and Egyptian Pyramids which explain a couple of the collages above. Check them out!
