Americana extender or FolkArt Blending Gel
To paint wet-on-wet, a layer of Blending Get or Extender is applied. When loading the brush to apply color, ‘dress’ the brush in Blending Gel first, then pick up color and apply to the wet Blending Gel on the surface.
Glazing: Use the filberts to paint the initial layers. Apply a thin layer of Gel or Extender to one petal at a time. Apply the color indicated by dressing or loading the brush in gel and then picking up the suggested color. Apply the shading and / or highlight color indicated and gently pat blend it into the basecoat. If necessary, mop to soften.
Floating: The previous layers must be dry. Use the angle shader to float layers of shading and highlights.
Use the colors indicated in the general supply tab.
