Breaking it Down Further… Gels & Mediums
There are a few general distinctions that once remembered make the whole group of gels and mediums seem much less difficult to understand.
The main property that differentiates a majority of products is viscosity – that is, how thick or thin a product is. This is what actually separates the gels from the mediums. The mediums are the thinner products, while the gels are thicker, having higher viscosities. The mediums are thin enough to be pourable, while the gels are not.
