All mediums come individually in 50ml & 250ml jars.

Geraldton Crushed Garnet

 

 

 

This deep red transparent gemstone has an attractive glowing rich red colour when wet, and will maintain that colour once the binder is dry. Still deeper colour can be achieved with a glaze or varnish.  Almandine, which is known also as Carbuncle or the gem Garnet, occurs in metamorphic rocks like Mica schists.  Crushed garnet is an especially hard stone with a rhombic particle shape. It is suitable for texture for paintings or collage. For the best results mix up to equal parts crushed garnet with either MM4 Gel Medium, or MM7 Gloss Varnish and Gloss Medium. As both these mediums have a gloss finish they will maintain the beauty and clarity of the gem. Oil painters can mix Geraldton Crushed Garnet with their favourite appropriate oil painting mediums, however it is recommended that testing should always be done before the medium is used on artwork.
